thanks for making the font bigger.....alot easier to read now.

welcome to tw!!

everything you have mentioned is really easy to do. for the brake fluid flush...i'd take it to a shop and have them do that. the rest.........you can do in a few hours with basic hand tools.

^ Agreed. You can get most of the stuff online too. Check out rockauto.com for very low prices on your parts like plugs and the like. When it comes to stuff like brakes I'd take it to the pros and have them do it, shouldn't be more than $100 for a flush and refill. I would do the steering fluid as well since it's there.

sory about the confusing post. I just did a copy paste from my vehicle report so it was a lot more confusing so i actually cleaned it up a bit. But thank you for the advice.

Do you know where i could buy new brake bads and rotars for a good price?
