Hi everybody its been a long time since i posted here. So i need to replace rear break pads on my 97 catera, any suggestions as to where to go as far as cheapest shop, and how much did u spent on replacing those pads. If there is anubody in Seattle area and can recommend a shop i would greatly appreciate that.
P.S. i was at the goodyear service , they want $250 just to replace rear break pads!!! Shit is outrageous son.

dude, get the pads from an auto store and do it yourself, save alot of $. And its not that hard either.

autozone has econo pads for $25 a pair. and if your rotors are ok, then the job will take 20 min.

pull of tires, pop out 2 pins and spings will come out, pull out old pads. push pistons back (make sure break fluid cap is off), pop new pads in. put springs and pin back and put tires back on..

you don't have to remove anything major for that job
