Edmonton Garage?

Just wondering if anybody can suggest a good place to get the brakes done on my truck? Looking for someone who has had good experience somewhere. I've dealt with some of the dealerships in edmonton and have not liked the service I've gotten so far.

Are you not 1 for hands on do it yourself ? be alot cheaper to do the pads yourself than to take it to a garage and have them do it.

I ain't afraid to do it myself, but I am thinking my rotors may need some work done to them. Not 100% sure, but I have just over 100K on all original brakes.

If you don't mind me asking, what do they charge to install the brakes?

i think it was like 250$ with some stuff needed like seals or something.
no brakes shop would touch it with bringing in my own brakes. they all wanted me to buy there 800$ stock stuff

honestly, it ain't that difficult. did mine last year and replace rotors, pads which was about $800. basic hand tools were all that you will need.

you got stuck with the local 800$ stock stuff they tried to sell me? shitty deals.

should have got the rotor pros for 250$ and did them yourself. better stopping and looks better.

Those rotors look very familiar. Good taste.
