    I caved guys (brakes)

    As it turns out, my drums may be warped, pretty sure they are (since the pulsations get worse with the longer I drive)

    My brake shoes have cracked.

    They quy quotes my 100 (parts included) to do the rears

    That a fair price?

    considering the drums run $60 and pads are about $15, I'd think so.

        Would it make more sense for me to do it? I think it would.

        Does a 1989 Lincoln town car have 10-11 inch brakes? For some reason, I think it is 10, right?

            Im going to call and get an exact explanation on what gets done

            I already have the wheel cylinder and drums ( i can buy new ones myself)

            But he told me to do rear brakes (not counting the wheel cylinder) its a 100

              That's nothing! We're pampered by the relatively cheap prices on our old american cars, and it throws our sense of repair prices out of whack
              Lincolnmania's probably right-- just shoes and a hardware kit is all you should get for $100. That's $20-$30 in parts, and leaves $70 shop labor, mechanic probably sees $15 of that.
              Since you can do it yourself, just do!

              ...my roomate has a bmw mini and dealer price on brakes all the way 'round is $1200!!
