My Brakes Are Grinding and Making Noise What Will it Cost

Reader Question I think I need a brake job on my 1988 Chevy Spectrum.Things are squeaking, grinding and groaning when I hit the brakes, but using the manual brake doesn’t seem to produce any adverse reactions. How much should I expect to pay? Philip

Philip hello there,

I would expect to pay $150ish for a front brake job, pads, resurface the rotors, labor and tax Although, if you hear a grinding noise you might have to replace your brake rotors which will cost you another $75 or hopefully less for some cheap no name brake rotors which should be just fine.

You don’t hear the noise with the hand brake because that only uses the rear brakes….and you need front brakes.
