98 MARK 8 FRONT BRAKES

1998 Lincoln Mark VIII • V8 2WD Automatic • 116,000 miles

HOW MUCH IS IT GOING TO COST ME TO GET MY FRONT BRAKES FIXED IN MY 98 LINCOLN MARK 8? THE MECHANIC I BROUGHT MY CAR TO SAID THEY FRONT BRAKE PADS ARE HARD TO FIND BECAUSE OF THE MAKE AND MODEL OF THE CAR. I CHECKED AUTO ZONE. COM AND FOUND BRAKE PADS FOR $19.99. THE GUY IS TELLING ME HE HAS TO SPECIAL ORDER THEM AND ITS GOING TO COST ME $200.00 JUST FOR THE PART ALONE, AND WITH THE WORK HE GAVE ME AN EST. OF $556.28. DOES THIS SEEM RIGHT FOR JUST BRAKE PADS?

PLUS IM A FEMALE AND HE MIGHT BE TRYING TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF ME. BUT IM NO DUMMY!

THANK YOU
