What's a fair price to get rear brake shoes and rotors repalced?

Thanks

Jim, it really varies. Are you talking about rear parking brake shoes, disc brake pads and disc brake rotors? Is hardware okay?

Variables include: Qualty of parts, mark up by shop, if the pivots are seized. The locality of shop, availability of suppliers that can offer different parts. A heavier competition of parts stores can affect the cost of goods to the shop that may pass on savings.

I would expect about $400-600 as a range.
