Hello, I would like to see how much it should cost to get new front and back break pads. I brought the car to a local mechanic and he said that he could shave the rotors down and put new pads on, but the price was pretty high. I am returning the car in because the lease is over in 2 1/2 months, so I just want something that will last that long. Thanks

I paid over 200.00 for my pads, they are ceramic and I wanted to put back on it what came on it. So if they said around 300.00 for front and rear that is not bad. But you could do it yourself and save $$. If you are getting rid of it you can go the cheap pad route....but someone that buys it will pay.

The local guy told me 450 for front and back pads and labor and then Midas told me 356 for the front and another 356 for the back. Do you know where I can find the pads that fit on the truck, I may have another guy that will do them cheap if I get the material? Again, I am just looking for something cheap, not the pads that you put on. Thanks a lot

One guy told me 450 and then Midas told me 356 for the front and another 356 for the rears. Do you know where I can buy cheap pads online? THanks

check your local autoparts stores. Just tell them what year Escalade you have and if they carry any aftermarket pads they will let u know.

Watch the cheap pads, you will not stop as well and then may have to pay for body repair, not as much of an issue with the 18's.
