    Need Brakes @ 22.5k for 08 S/C

    So reading the forum, doesnt seem like new pads and rotors are too uncommon at 22.5k miles on my 08 RRS S/C?? But I did not see anything other than dealer replacement. Is this a job I can handle myself and where can I buy the parts besides the dealer? Thoughts anyone? Let me know and thanks in advance.

    So looks like British Parts of Utah has the stock parts. Also found PBR. NPN, Ferodom and some Akebono but never heard of any of those brands....? Any insight? Thanks.

    goosey is scheduled to post up a DIY on brakes, although an HSE, parts sourcing should be the same.

    Ferodom (sp?) I've never heard of, but Ferodo without the "m" is one of the stock pad mfgrs.

    The OEM front pads - and discs, I am sure - for the 2006-2009 RRS S/C are made by Brembo. Ferodo makes the original pads for the HSE and the rear brakes of the S/C (as well as brakes for most other Land Rovers these days, it's either them or Textar.) Personally, especially for the high performance front brakes I would spend the extra 70 bucks and get the OEM pads made by Brembo.

    Christmas Day it is. Here are the shop manual instructions for front and rear brake pad replacement, not much help but better than nothing. We are all waiting for your "pictorial", goosey.

    Well actually its the Day after Christmas. So if you don't hear from me...say in a day or so after that, you can assume the road test after the brake change may have not gone so well

    Awesome; I've never done brakes, so if you could also post the procedure for bleeding, etc. and what you used that would be perfect!

    3E, I'll do step by step w pictures...cause I know how much you like pictures. I'm not going to bleed the brake system on this go-round, just new discs and pads all round--although I may open up the bleeder a bit to push the piston back, depends on how far back I need to push it.

    To do the entire system I will take it to someone who has a pressure bleeder. I'll do it on a motorcycle by myself but w/o a pressure bleeder, its a royal PITA on a car.

    Oh by the way, I ordered the whole OEM brake kit from one of the site sponsors, British Atlantic--it cost me $559, or $607 w freight included. I can highly recommend them. I ordered it on a Monday and the whole thing was delivered the next day. Very easy and fast. Btw, both folks (Utah and BA) were within few dollars of each other on this but if you live in the NE the shipping from BA is cheaper since the rotors are heavy.

    Depends on whether you need only pads or pads and discs (and stealers just love to change discs like underwear... more money for them) and where in the United States you are as hourly labor fees can vary dramatically by location, but you'll get raped without Vaseline either way if you get the brakes done at the dealer. $1,200 and up for a full brake job, pads, rotors and sensors, is not an uncommon quote. Brakes are not covered by the factory warranty anyway, so either find a good brake shop or Land Rover indy mechanic using OEM parts (don't go to a Midas, if you know what I mean...), or do it yourself if you are so inclined. Goosey here will make it look so easy by the time he is done.

    I was quoted 800 for front rotors and pads. Said my pads etched into my rotors. Well LR make a better rotor! Probably gonna just do the job myself.
