Elcompalalo, I also have a 2008 Malibu LS and I need to change my front brake pads. Im not very mechanically inclined, although I follow instructions very well, and I have only changed pads once and that was on my '91 Dodge Dynasty....is there any thing special I need to know about replacing the pads? I will have a friend assisting me who is mechanically inclined and changed pads on all his own vehicles..so I wont be without some instruction. Thanks so far to everyone for the info that has been posted so far on this forum!!
