Cost for brakes

I have a 2004 X -- anyone know what new brakes would cost? A range from a) just new pads, to z) "the works" i.e., new rotors, etc.

I bought new Savvy Black Magic pads and Centric Premium rotors for around $220.00 shipped for my 04 X.
Install was free. Did it myself, easy peasy. A definate improvement over stock braking.

x2 on the black magic pads. Very good stopping power over anything I have had. They were $115 shipped and I did them myself too. There really are not too many things easier than disc brakes to replace.

I hate brakes! Changed the fuel pump today, figured that I would just go ahead and do the rear brakes at the same time (up in the air already and tires off). Started to take the springs off and they just crumbled. The two big ones are OK but the rest are just dust. Mud in the eye... parts stores already closed. Wait till Monday, poop! Good thing I just took one side apart so I can look at the other side to see how all those stupid little parts go back in there.

If in doubt always take a picture with your camera so you can get the right parts back where they belong.

I did mine twice and while "easy"-since Midas was doing muffler/cat had them check the brakes $100 per axle-but "lifetime warranty". Don't they know how long people keep these?
