Re: Need help quick on brake pads!!! Costs of pads and labor? (rogeshoe)

Hey guys thanx for the info on this thread -- very useful.
I'm ready for a pad change now (geez sounds kinda bad), and am going to go Mintex all around ... I've heard good things about 'em.
How do I know if I need work done on the rotors / new rotors? 38k on the car, and no scraping sound, but the brakes are whining a bit and the braking performance has dropped off significantly over the past few weeks (i.e. I assume that means I need new pads).
I do _eventually_ want to do a full brake upgrade, but right now I just want to keep costs down so if I don't need new rotors I'll save on that...
Any info would be appreciated...thanks!
