FYI save the money on shipping and buy the coolant from your local dealer, I just got a gallon for 18$, so from wherever that list is from your overpaying AND adding a lot of weight which will bump up your shipping costs

Do yourself a favour and don't purchase the drilled/slotted rotors, or ceramic pads. To add on top, for that price I'm betting they're no name.

Hope it goes well. Let me know how bad the rears are. The front bearings seem pretty easy.

Flushed old, murky brown power steering fluid and put some new in. This morning SES light appeared and car ran like crap. Pulled code an read P0302 which is cylinder 2 misfire. Swapped coils, cleared code and it came back as cylinder 1 misfire. Ordered coil and should be here tomorrow or Monday.

Oh, and I forgot to mention my power steering reservoir cap gasket came in today. Hopefully fixed all my current issues today.
