It was Stillen front rotors, Performance Friction Carbon Metallic front pads and 2 factory new calipers for it, it was $360 with $170 for shipping to me.
But even with the shipping added to it its still cheaper than it would be if i had bought the parts here in sweden.

Got a new windshield installed today. It's great not looking through a sand blasted windshield. Not only that but there's no more scratch from when my wiper blade decided to break during a downpour. And lastly, maybe this will fix the leak that has plagued my ZJ since I got it over 3 years ago. We'll see.

How much did that set you back?

$162 out the door with a friends and family discount. Otherwise I would have been looking at over $200.

My valve on the high pressure side has a leak. Asked the shop how much to replace (since I don't have an evap system to drain) said 200-250. Tempted to say f it and just refreon it and call it good for a couple months.

Found a haynes manual, was pumped about that.

I have the stillen rotors front and rear, same pad set up from kolak. Ran me around 400 including shipping. I really like the set up personally. Nice because the rotors are 1 piece cast instead of 2 like the originally did. Stops the tank very well. Tested them out at go topless day and did very well on steep hills

I also found and purchased a Haynes manual today..I love the thing I used to have one I loaned to a fellow (newbie) ZJ owner who left it on his passenger side floor board. Needless to say we all know what happened to it.
