    Help with purchasing brake parts..

    Im going to redo all of my brakes here soon.

    I have never changed the rear and I here something starting to rub back there..


    I tallyd up everything on autozone and its going to cost 410 bucks just to do the rears!!!

    This means
    Rotors,Ebrake Shoes, caliper brackets, calipers, and pads..

    I also want to do SS brake lines as well in the future so the price skyrockets?

    Any good site to look at.. BTW. these are just stock replacement parts... id like to get the price down quiet a bit..

    Why e-brake shoes and caliper brackets? Should be able to re-hab what you have unless it is really rusted up bad.

    E brake shoes are toast. Car has been driven since 98. Going to replace everything.

    For pads I'd go with Raybestos "Quiet Stops."
    Excellent braking, no noise, almost no dusting, great milage to boot.
    Don't know why you'd need caliper brakets. Caliper PINS yes.
    Rock Auto has some of the best prices on OEM parts. www.rockauto.com
