    Default Trailblazer brake pad recommendations

    It's about time for me to tackle the brake pads. I was toying with the idea of heading down to the Just Brakes place to get pads and shoes and have the rotors turned for $100, they try to do an upsell on everything, but they'll do the $100 job for cheaper than I can get pads and take the rotors to get turned.

    Man things are cheap in the States. I should go over the border to go get mine done. LOL. My TB has to be done too.

    Well, a good brake job should cost no less than $200-250. This place, "Just Brakes" will do a basic brake system inspection and will replace the pads and shoes and machine the rotors for $99.88. However, as I said, it seems to me that they always come back with a few more things that need to be fixed ... and they want an extra $300 for them. Well, never had a problem yet ...
