Whats the difference between brake rotors, pads and caliper?
Also, can brake rotors and brake pads be two different brands? And how do I know which is a good price and which is too high or too low? Autozone has some that are $54, $35, and even $21 or $19, does cheap mean worse in brakes? I am planning on changing my own brakes. Please give me some advice.
