Brake jobs have gotten so much easier on cars built in the past 10-15 years. Everything is designed so much better, and now you can get electroplated brackets at AutoZone that last years before they rust. Throw in copper based anti-seize, and ceramic slider grease, lifetime warranty pads, and life is good.
Oh hell, I have been doing brake jobs since I was a kid.
My family owned a mechanic shop from somewhere in the 50's to the early 2000's.
I am happy with how easy it is to replace pads. The rotors seem fine. The back end of my escape is drums that appear to be fine. So it is maybe an hour job. 2 if I take my time at it.
