Don't forget the harware kit for the rear brakes that include new springs, etc. It'* pretty cheap and you'll need one for each side. Also put a dab of grease on the back plate where the side of the brake shoe comes in contact. It'* those raised bumps on the back plate. I just remembered that the newer cars have that U-Spring that you don't have to replace.

Are you going to rebild the car?

You are in some cases wasting money...

I don't reccomend the auto parts store MAF'*... Have had to take quite a few of them back..

Rotors for an 89 are cheap... Should be $13 each.. You may need to shop a few places... Do you have a Wal Mart... you can get a 5 qt container of Mobil 1 for $23 or $24... You can easily live with the NGKTR55 and they are cheap too..

You want a complete gasket set? My gasket set for the complete top end was about $130 that includes the head gaskets... Fel Pro head bolts should be $25-26....
