I can do'em if you like. Just did mine. The big catch, you'd have to drive to Skokie (sorry, the garage is a bit far). If it was summer I'd come out by you, but still a nice chill in the air

Isuzu Rodeo 4WD brakes are a whole lot differant than 350z brakes.. for one, if you plan on machining the rotors or replacing them the 4x4 front hubs need to be dissaslbed first and theres special tools for that.

i would do it, but i am lazy

You should need special tools, well as least my pathfinder 4x4 doesn't.

my 96 isuzu rodeo front hubs had to come apart when I replaced pads + rotors, but I didn't need special tools. The next generation of isuzu rodeo like yours could be entirely different though so I am of no help

no? i wonder what year one i did brakes on? i have worked on so many cars i forget about half of them, but i remember needing some odd ass socket to get the hubs apart. and i remember saying to myself.. "fuck this" and i went and got a job at the Dodge dealer

I work in Des Plaines, so this can be arranged. All I need is pads, the dealer said my rotors were fine. I am thinking late March.

Ok, that shouldn't be a problem.

If your too lazy, then pay to get them done. By the time you buy pads and get the rotors cut (like you should everytime you change the pads) wouldn't the extra few bucks for piece of mind and a lifetime warranty be worth it?
