So I just called my dealership and asked them what would it cost me for labor to do breaks, pads and rotors if I bring in all material. I was shocked at the price qouted to me of 200 a axel, for just labor?
Is it me or is this crazy? Where do you guys go to get breaks done? I can't do them myself so this is out. I'm in northern nj

That does sound high. Down here my techs get paid two hours for the job but labor total is $99.95

Do them yourself... problem solved. Unless it's just too cold and you're too busy.

Heck, see if anyone on the board is local and offer up some cash and/or beer.
