Help- Vancouver- Local Garage - breaks


Looks like I need new discs ( back and front) with pads. Any suggestions for a mechanic here in Vancouver? I am looking for an economic/cheap option but I am willing to pay a fair price[b]
for good work

Look up HBL Autosports in Richmond.
Eric the owner knows Subaru inside and out and he's done all of the work on my car for the last 4 years.
When I did my brakes last year he got me a good price on powerslot rotors and hawk pads.
If you look at the Vancouver chapter on nasioc you'll see plenty of testimonials.

Re: Help- Vancouver- Local Garage - breaks

arrow-up if the OP is on a budget, skip the powerslots for Centric Premium and unless the OP is into performance braking (note spelling) they can probably skip Hawk pads ($) and use the search function on the site to find some less pricey alternatives.

Re: Help- Vancouver- Local Garage - breaks

Are you not able to do brake pads yourself? It's a quite easy job to do.

You can get store brand Ceramic brake pads for the front and rear from O'Reilly or Auto Zone or wherever for pretty cheap.

Just a cam and a tune.
