Saab Automobile manufactured the Saab 900 from 1978 to 1998. It was a two-door, compact car that had excellent gas mileage and handling. The disc brakes on it were simple to change and usually took around 30 minutes per wheel for the at home mechanic. The brakes were good for 50,000 to 100,000 miles and usually lasted three to five years. The lightness of the car added to the life of the brakes.

Tools Used: Tools, Tire iron, Floor jack, Jack stands, Socket wrench, Rope, C-clamp
