Brakes for Lincoln Zephyr Sport
Amount: $330.00
Posted by: a user in Lubbock, TX.Posted: March 11th, 2011 08:03AM
Car Make: LincolnCar Model: Zephyr Sport
Auto Shop: Pioneer Lincoln
I got four ceramic genuine Motorcraft brake pads for my Zephyr sport and my rotors were turned/remachined. It took around 2 hours.
Lincoln Ultra High Performance Brakes would have been $650 for 4 pads, Lincoln High Performance Brakes would have been $450 for 4 pads and the mechanic told me that is actually Motorcraft but different packaging so I would pay for the brand name thus that is the same as the ceramic Motorcraft that comes in Motorcraft box not in Lincoln Hight Performance labeled box.

Auto Shop: @ home, parts from autozone
I am so glad that I decided to do my brakes myself after looking on here I probably saved over $400. It is really not a difficult job, we ran into a snag such as needing a new caliper and a lug nut being over tightened. We bought all the parts from autozone so we get the money back on brake pads, rotors have a 1yr warranty, and we got $25 back for bringing back the broken caliper. I only watched my brother do the brakes once last year and I just went to ehow for the step by step directions.

PS my father drove semi truck for 10 years only with REDLINE brakes and never had any problems.

Good price, fast service. I thought this was a very low and good price. The technician listened to my complaint about vibration at speed, and stuck his hands through the wheels, felt the rotors and said the replacement would solve my problem. They did a great job, and were very professional

Auto Shop: Pep Boys, Long Island NY
Considering I'm not a huge fan of car repair prices, I went to Goodyear and was quoted $900. A tune up alone was $550 for my car which was just replacing plugs. Are you serious? I went by other places and got better prices. I went with Pep Boys because I've never had a problem with any of their repairs.
Rear brakes - $161.97
Tune up - $146.99
Synthetic oil change - $54.19
Warranty - $21.47
Additional labor time - $69.00
Tax = $39.11

Semi metallic front pads and rear shoes, plus new drum spring kit for $56 through Amazon.com for $56. I already had the synthetic grease, brake tools, brake bleeder, cotter pins and a gallon of brake fluid. The rotors and drums were in excellent shape (no ridges or deep scratches) so I just scuffed with emory paper. Drained and replaced brake fluid and repacked wheel bearings while I was at it.

Bought 4 new drilled and slotted rotors locally for $200. Bought front and rear "Satisfied" ceramic brake pads online from Amazon.com for $100. I had the synthetic grease, brake tools and bleeding equipment and a gallon of brake fluid. Installation very straightforward and easy with the exception of having to take a 2" x 2" and tapping the back of each frozen rear rotor to pop them off. Drained and replaced all the old brake fluid with new fluid.

Auto Shop: Pep Boys
I originally took the car in to a Mazda dealership to get the brakes checked - they quoted $497.85 to replace the front brake pads and rotors, 140 to flush out and change the brake fluid, and 28 for tire rotation for a total of 665.85.
When I called Pep Boys they quoted 69.99 for the hydraulic brake flush and 213.97 for all the parts and labor with free tire rotation - the total with tax was 313.89, then I found a coupon on their website for 10% off. VERY happy to have saved $375, it pays to compare :) I just wish I'd seen the coupon sooner since Pep Boys offered free brake inspection too, and the dealer charged $55 just to tell me what was wrong w/the car!

I purchased front & rear ceramic brake pads for my 2007 Camry for $100. I took it to local auto repair shop for installation and machining the rotors. I haven't gotten new brakes/pads before so I didn't know what would be the labor cost, but after reading above posts I think $150 is very reasonable.
