Replace Brake pads

I guess it is time to replace my steering wheels brake pads.
The warning pins came out and fell off.

I have DISC brakes in there.
I called around local truck shops and they don't want to do it.
They were asking about drum brakes instead.

Where do i go for replacing front disc brake pads?
I am in FL keys today but will be heading back to NH tomorrow...4 days drive
I am willing to stop by a shop in/around I-95 from FL going north.

Any suggestions?

The dealers quote insane prices.

Happy new year!

Since you don't get down this way very often I would try Josams in Orlando. Brakes and the best alignment anywhere. Easy on/off the FL Turnpike then head back NE from there. Done right the first time!!

Another vote for Josams. If you decide to go there, call Barry Hamton with your axle numbers from the tag and any numbers you can get from Monaco by a phone call for replacement parts for your brakes, etc. The last time I talked with Barry he said that he could track down the info but it would take a little longer and possibly cause a delay in getting necessary parts. When I was there, they determined everything was ok and I didn't need brakes, etc. However, I did have them repack the wheel bearings while they had everything off. Excellent service and knowledge base.
