Rockauto shows pads and rotors from 60 to 160.00

Guess u want only top of line....


400 does seem steep even for a shop for just front two wheels pads and rotors..
$60 is a great price!

There's a sticker with months and years to be punched out but nothing is punched out on it. I guess I'll replace it and see if that fixes the issue.
Any issue with doing this?
Yes as long as you have the cap on the fuel tank closed your good to go. You can install any magnetic clip or whatever you like.
   But look for video of someone who changed the gas door and latch and see how it's done and what it cost to change the door on your own.

 And regarding the battery very simple you can

First hand experience - Nissan Altima SL 2008; bought brand new. Had 135k miles and it's transmission died last month. Trans repair from the stealership is $4500 all in with only a 12-month/12k miles warranty,  so basically useless.
Another case - my BIL had a 2016 Altima with 65k miles, had the same issue in July.

I researched about the issue and the internet has hundreds of complaints of failed transmission on the Altima. Basically CVT doesn't last long and they don't make them good anymore.
That's a bit overpriced, especially when using the stealership!

Most just require turning the steering all the way one way then all the way the other way. Repeat 5-10 times.
Now a week or two after having the 4 tires replaced I got the TPMS sensor light on my dash, now it's weird it doesn't just come up it goes to zero PSI then it shows 101 PSI then goes to 50 then goes to 80 jumping all around.
  I checked the tire pressure it's perfect and there is no particle inside the tire or no puncture wounds.
   I tried to search for some videos how to reset it but don't have that option on my vehicle I think I'm going to have to bring it into the tire shop and let him do a remotely by computer.
  Or it seems It's a faulty TPMS kit which will need to be replaced which might cost some money.

Yup that's required for the removal of the hydro boost which is leaking, and replace the old gaskets.

Air pockets are not that simple. It can be in the pump.
4 Brand New tires and horrible steering, what a shame!

Then that will require me to do some research. Thanks for the tip on what it can be!

Everything but gearbox/rack I have replaced many times. I once had the same issue as you and it was a defective rebuilt power steering pump. An air pocket in the system can cause what you are describing also.
For an air pocket in the power steering reservoir all you do is keep it open and then all the bubbles bubble out.

 But will have to take another look at the power steering pump if you're thinking that's issue.

 So who's your helper when doing all these repairs or is your son using you as his helper?

I saw the numbers, but then I would have to go back and forth from the item to the scale which will also take a while. I brought them all to do it in one shot. Anyway, it's not for me but I'm more than happy that others use it
They invented a phone where you can take a picture of the barcode and take a peak at the scale or take an old fashion pen and paper and jot it down.

Anyone ever replaced on their own the pitman arms, idler arms, sway bar? Tie rods? Gear box/rack?
   Steering is miserable on my car very hard to turn when not moving , meaning parking the car, and when driving on highways a loose steering wheel.
     New power steering pump put it, new belt, there's power steering fluid in the reservoir, and yes a small leak from the hydro boost which needs a new gasket in the middle and by the end by the brake pedal.
  So all the basic checks were done and now jumping to the other steering components, planning bon getting an alignment so thought to fix the steering before I waste money on an alignment. Brand New tires as well, and will replace front and back shocks or springs if needed.

 just curious if anyone actually replaced any of this steering components in the front of the vehicle by themselves?
   As having all or lots replaced at a shop would require me to  have a money tree in my backyard.

 Assuming if you did such a repair you would know the parts of a car, but for those who like all those fancy words and want to understand, here you go..
