You down to do some suspension were this weekend? The spot in front of my lawn should work unless you prefer your garage. We'd just need the stands, jack, and whatever other tools, but my house shouldn't be a problem.

I guess someone started the process, then ran out of money half way through). Anyway, there's an abandoned two story either apartment building or hotel at the far end, with a road presumably on the other side (any roads that went to the houses were probably dirt because they were long gone when I was there). So I go to the building, roughly in the middle, and there's lattice all along the lower story in front a porch so you cant get through, but it only goes halfway to the ceiling of the upper balcony so I just climb up. Most of the rooms are boarded up, but one had already been kicked in so I checked it out, and there was a pentagram spray painted on the wall and a dead goat inside, which actually didn't bother me too much since I've seen this sort of thing before.
Cool story, bro.

$15 for the brake shoes? I can't stand the squeak from mine.

How many miles on the rotors? I don't need them ATM, but with the way I drive...

I argue with stupid people.

When you turn a polite correction of grammar into a personal attack, yes, you are e-thugging.

Sure, works for me.

Not sure since I drove so little that I never changed the brakes on the sedan. Kinda remember the PO saying they were replaced right before she sold me the car and I took them off when I did the LSD swap, so that would put them at 13000 miles.

K. How difficult are they to replace? Probably not too bad right? Just finicky with all the springs.

Eh, I'd rather go new on the rotors then. They rarely need replacing anyway.
