Just changed my Front Brake pads and skimmed disk rotor on my 9 years old ES5 (1.6l).

Dixcel ES Pads ($170)
Skim existing Brake Rotor ($100)
Total damage ($270 including labour)

About 2 hours (they need to send rotor to nearby workshop)

Hopefully can last 1 more year before scrapping.
Just for 1 year, $100 skimming a Brembo Sports Cross drilled 1st time better than new Stock OEM.

sure got chance bro... the question is... what's your budget? if you looking for lelong items ... likely cannot get... if you want new ... likely can get...

but why would a DC5R want to have lowering springs????? Most people upgrade to high performance coilovers - aragusta or tien ss minimum...
