Brakes are done. Parts: $110 ($30 for shoes; $80 for rotors). I could have probably cut that in half. Value in time..probably would have come out better with the $260 at the shop. Satisfaction: priceless.

I never did find the torque settings for the 2005 Dodge Grand Caravan. I ended up using 20 ft/lb for the caliper bolts and 80 ft/lb for the caliper braket bolts. I also learned that Autozone’s lifetime warrantee means lifetime. When the shoes wear out, I was told to take them back to Autozone and get another set for free.
