I have just over 26000 miles on my 2003 Focus Wagon SE and I have been hearing the signs of new front brakes. I have seen several suggestions for upgrading the rotors and pads when brakes are changed. My car is used for regular transportation and I am looking for some suggestions which are not very expensive but will certainly last for more than 26,000 miles. I have never had to replace brakes on a car this soon and it is really sad . Any suggestions??? Also when you make these types of changes does it only involve changing the rotors and pads? The calipers and other components are fine right?
