Looks like an ok price. Not sure how much prices vary across regions, but I'd assume CA prices are on the higher end vs lower. Given that info, if it checks out ok at that price it's a fair deal.

Cant argue [emoji115]with that. I suppose the vibration felt is less pronounced than the warped rotor sensation, say just when the rotors are starting to wobulate.
