That's about right for $60 pads and an hour of labor. But brakes are easy to do if you're willing to take the time to do it. Plus, there's a good chance you can use better parts and inspect other things while you're there.

If you want someone to do them for you, professional shops will still be in this price range unless they're using the junk $5 pads (that's right--that's how cheap junk parts are wholesale--you get what you pay for).

Personally, I'd invest the $100 or so for a Ford factory service manual (or see if you can download one for now), and then just do it myself. I used to only be able to change my own oil and tires and brakes were in the same league skill-wise. Worse comes worse, you're still out $160 and maybe some time.
