dhambrick...awesome DIY man!!! I will be using both of your DIY write-ups w/in a month or so and replacing all four rotors and pads. Quick question for you...any recommendations on a battery charger? Would one of these cheap $20 ebay ones work? Obviously we don't need it to super charge the batter ASAP, just keep the voltage constant...seems like any of these should be able to do that...right? Thanks again!

Thanks for the kind words!
I would not count on a "Trickle" type charger to keep the battery up to the recommended voltage (I think it's like 13.5v).
That said, you can get a decent battery charger for <$40 at Auto Zone, Pep Boys, or somewhere like that. Or borrow one from your neighbor!

FWIW, my charger was pretty warm after the procedure.

Thanks...and http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif for the DIY! Really appreciate it. Btw, did you upgrade the pads or just go with OEM pads again?
