So I need new brakes for the XB. Toyota dealership wants to charge me over $500 to change all over. "F" that. I went to a local shop that I trust and they would do it for $400. However I just hit 60,000 miles and he strongly suggested I get rotors replaced as well and that for him to change all brakes, rotors and cleaning with labor will be $874. Now the Toyota dealership hasn't ever told me what condition my rotors were in and their status has never been mentioned to me since day one of owning the XB.

I went online and discovered rockauto.com. I saw that I can get 4 brakes and rotors made by Power Stop for $147. Is this a good brand? Is this too good to be true? Here is the site:

If these will do the job it will save me A LOT of money. I hope these work good because I'm broke because I'm getting married in a couple of weeks. Any advice on these products will help greatly.

I don't break hard nor am I an aggressive driver. From what I see my rotors are still shiny smooth but I wouldn't know if they are still thick or not. I would do it myself and am tempted to but I need to go out and get a wrench and socket tool kit. Also my lug nuts are on super super tight from the dealership over tightening them with their air powered tools.

I'm just going to get the brakes changed because from what I see my rotors are smooth with no damage. Also I read somewhere on this forum that you have to watch out for the emergency brake line when changing the breaks in the rear?
