$20 rotors and $50 perfectly good OEM Jurids ftw. Or pony up the cash for some real pads for a little more fun. I think my last real brake job was about $300 for rotors and full set of HP+.

Yeah, speedbumps and driveways are noticeable more comfortable. Actually, just about everything is more comfortable, but the sway does suck...

Also, that failing endlink was the reason for a lot of the clunking in the front of my van, so good to know about that. The bad news, is that screeching that I pulled over for is quickly getting worse and worse, and it's actually not the wheel rubbing the tie rod. It's something to do with the front hub and or brakes. Light application of the brakes is all it takes to make it stop, or loading up the bearings by turning. Ugh... Next weekend is going to be front hub disassembly at Kalim's to see what is wrong.
