    I just went and bought new front brakes and rotors, $210.00. I thought the rotors would be about $70.00-$75.00 each, they were $39.00 each. I figured the brakes pads would be about $40.00-$50.00, they were $130.00. I about shit myself.

    So . . . you actually came out about right?

    You thought rotors would be $75 each . . that's $150. You thought pads would be $50 . . that's $200 total. Add in the "I remember when candy bars cost a nickel!!" factor and you came out pretty good. 8)

    I spent about what I figured I would spend. I just thought the expensive part was the rotors not the pads.

    Yes I got some muffler bearing grease and blinker fluid. I had to buy the grease, and they only had blinker fluid for the left side. They special ordered the right side blinker fluid.

    I am going to remove the rear section of my mufflers and repack the bearings when I have it on the jackstands. I am getting a humming noise and I think it is the muffler bearings.

    Do any of you guys know what the preload on the muffler bearings are? I need to get the proper shim packs.

    The preload is between 6 and 8 foot pounds depending on altitude. But, if you get a universal canuter valve, the altitude variation doesn't apply so the preload is 6.

    Actually if you got the cash for the universal canuter titanium valvebody, you might as well go with a stainless dual percussion sensor as well or they wont
    variate right under really hard acceleration and under hard breaking when the ABS is used it could actually cause a piston fire in the sparkplugs.
