Question DYI for total brake replacement

Hello all... new to this forum but have been lurking for a while...

Was wondering about links for DYI for a total brake rebuild, (95 BMW M3 or other like year ) Disks, Pads, Caliper rebuild SS brake lines. Any help or direction would help.

Also looking for shock replacement DYI too...

I am recovering from shock... from the dealer quote I received today. I am supplying all the parts... aprox $1,450... maybe some overlap my friend told me...he works there...dam

Thanks in advance PK

Several in the DIY section. Pretty much all 3 series brakes are the same. Same for shocks. Some bolt sizes are slgihtly different, the number of flexible lines are different, but the basic setup is the same. I have done brakes on E30s, E36s, 3s, and E46s.
