I haven’t had brakes done in about 10 years. I got quoted about ~$600 for front and rear pads and calipers from a large chain. Is that ballpark? (4-wheel disc, WRX). I think I just have sticker shock because so much time has passed since I’ve needed brakes. I think I paid ~$300 10 years ago from the same company, and that was a disc/drum set up.

They said they won’t do the pads without doing the calipers.

(You can spare me the “do it yourself” suggestion. Ain’t happening.)
