Most mechanics go for around $50ish an hour. Add on about a 25% mark up on parts. You be at...
$100 in parts
$50 in labor
$50 in additonal parts (brake fluid, springs, other misc parts added in)
Tax, disposal fees etc....
Prolly around $250 total
Although with Brakes, a lot of places offer a deal, you could probably get all 4 brakes, and an oil change in the $300ish range.
