Default Brake Pads

Looking at getting my brakes pads done. Do the drum brake pads get replaced at the same time as disc brake pads. If so how much?

There's no need to replace the rears at the same time as the fronts, but I'd do both rears at the same time if even one of them looks ready.

I've been told to do my brakes every time I've taken it in for service since the 30k service. I've refused each time, said no thanks. It's now on 137k on odometer and the brakes are fine. Check the pads yourself, don't listen to Nissan service.
D22 is like no other car I've owned, it's a beast.

Lets face it,

It matters not how good our "Steeds" are, when it is all said and done, they are
all only there to make Money from us, and they get really "Pissed" at those who
"D.I.Y." Servicing, and reduce the Costs they can charge too very little and
this will reduce the Profit Margins they can earn!

If you have a Local Repair shop that you feel you can Trust and are happy with
his prices, and workmanship, then Group together as a private club of Five-Nine-twelve, or what-ever
and approach him as such and ask for a fixed lower payment rate, and I know he will take you on!

He will make more then the Passer by Trade, and you will save more then you
do dealing with Nissan Workshops, and be more valued by him and his Family,
If by chance one of you owns a Tow Truck, recommend him first, to any other
Roadside Breakdowns, and watch the little extra's you get as his thanks!

Myself and Six others have done this for Years, {all ex navy, with different ships tallies} and our local "Repco Parts Shop"
backs us and him from the word go, It works!

Best Regards,

highway man!
