hey gang, a few days ago i received mt stoptech stage two kit from our sponsor performancenissanparts.com. after carefull deliberating i decided to have the brakes installed instead of putting them on myself.

reason 1: i dont have ower tools and am not that strong.

reason 2: this was the only helper i cound find

reason 3: this guy, keith. he is the service manager at sheehey nissan here in annapolis and he is one **** of a nice guy. he was the one who switched out my tranny not so long ago. and against company rules let me come into the shop and take some pics.(you da man)

pam,
yeah it was a local nissan dealership. i know i know, dealerships are usually a bunch of ill trained techs, but i specifically asked for the shop manager(kevin) who has been there for 21 years. the shop is nice as ****. is got air conditioning like my refrigerator.and internet access. it was sweet.

well i have to admit that nissan stock brakes wear out much faster than expected
so it s good to invest in a brake kit like that one...
how much did it cost you?
