Noises involve more than just new brake pads and shoes. Often the rotors or drums are damaged and worn beyond the legal limit. Have the brake system inspected. They will give you an estimate for the standard brake job plus any additional parts or services that are needed.

A lot of variables involved like what brand/quality of replacement parts etc. Maybe brakes is not your problem? Never heard thunder sound from brakes myself? Inspection is good idea to find out.
