Hi all...

Wondering if you all could help me out a little bit. I have a '03 zx3 auto which just failed inspection today due to brakes.

Question 1: Where can I buy OEM brakes for this vehicle online without paying an arm and a leg

Question 2: Are drum brakes easy to replace? If so, what will I need before I start taking them apart.

I'm mechanically inclined so I figure these things I could probably swap on my own. Thanks in advace to any help.

Honestly, spend a little time with Google searching for your parts and you'll find a reputable parts dealer with a good price pretty quickly. I'm sure others will have suggestions though...

Actually, drums can be pretty tricky. They look pretty simple, but when you go to re-assemble them they are a mechanical puzzle held together under tension. They infuriated me the first time I worked on them!
Certainly not impossible, but they can simply be tricky to do right until you learn their tricks.
