Man you can get it done way cheaper than $600, my neighbor is a mechanic at Chrysler he said he'll do it for me for $140, $600 is absurd just to install, an Indy might be cheaper too

Just do it yourself WTF! $600?? You take the wheel off, unbolt the caliper/swing to side, knock off break pads, knock off rotor, put on new rotor, put on new brake pads w/grease(you will need to compress the brake piston), bolt caliper back on, put wheel back on. (Two wheels will ahve teh added step of un-clipping the brake pad sensor and clipping the new one on. Should take you maybe 15 minutes per wheel.... Maybe 25 if you have never done it before.

That's what I'm saying, the service guy asked when I'd like to come in, I was like yeah I'll get back to you on that lol

Thanks for the helpful info guys. I was able to find a mechanic to do the install for $120, don't really have the interest in doing it myself. It looks like Parts Geek has the cheapest price for parts, unless anyone else knows of a cheaper option will order from them.
