Do you think an afterhours mechanic (say from Craigslist) can do all four wheels (just pads and sensors, not rotors) for say 2 hours labor? Thanks again for the replies.
Yes and yes.
This is one of those things where its just too easy to NOT do yourself.
There are literally just a couple bolts which need to be undone on the caliper.

A local sponsor had OEM-spec brake pads for $20/set rear, $35/set front.



You need to do 30% of the work shown in this video, since you're only changing pads:
