Replacing brakes

First off, I'm pretty sure this is the right place to put this thread, but I could be wrong grin...I need to replace my pads and the dealership told me that I would have to turn my rotors as well, for a grand total of $180. After doing some reseach, it sounds like a lot of you love the Greenstuff brakes... Someone else said they replaced their rotors with Brembo OEM style rotors, which I would need to do since I can't turn mine myself. So now the questions: Will these two work together, since they are both OEM specs I'm assuming? Also, how hard of a job is it to replace your pads? On other threads they've said you just back out one bolt and slip out the old and in the that about it? Thanks for any advice thumbsup

they will work together...

replaceing the pads and disks are pretty easy... all together about a 4/10 IMO. if you've never replaced brakes practice on a friends car fist grin wink

the rotors come off pretty easy, shouldnt take more than a few hours to do both.
