    On a typical car how much labor time does your shop normally estimate for:

    Pad and rotors (2 wheels) __________ ?

    Caliper, pads, and rotors (2 wheels) __________?

    Thanks in advance!

    I never give just one bid. The climate that exists is that current customers feel the need to be in control, even if they haven’t a clue the ramifications of just how important brakes are to life. I get prices on factory parts (most expensive), premium aftermarket parts (slightly cheaper, and then run-of-the mill aftermarket parts (cheapest). Per Terry Greenhut, I give radically differing warranties and let the customer decide on just how long they wish to be warranty covered. In today’s world, warranties are for sale on everything. You would be surprised how many opt for top-shelf factory parts.

    Typically, 1.5 pads and rotors, 2.5 w/ calipers.

    We use 1.2 for pads & rotors and .2 for each additional caliper. There are always special circumstances depending on the vehicle type though.
