Any reason I can't replace rotors, pads and or calipers myself?
Cadillac has quoted $1,500 to replaced pads and rotors (my rotors look like they need replacement) on my XLR-V. At the least, for that kind of money, I should be able to source some decent upgrades to the rotors and pads if I do the work myself. I have all the tools. (I've restored several early 70's muscle cars and a 74 Bronco so I'm not a stranger to automotive work)
Are there any XLR-V specific reasons why I should not try to do this? I know the lug nuts need to be torqued to 100 ft lbs. I will try to find the XLR repair manuel from GM (if available) to get any other torque info on other associated parts that need to be reassembled.
Any input or thoughts on this would be greatly appreciated.
