The best way to tell is by taking the tire off and look at the brake pads. if they are getting thin you should replace them.

I wouldn't want to take the tires off to check, you should be able to tell if the car is acting odd: takes longer stopping, squealing or grinding sounds and keep track of how long it's been between break jobs, have them checked everytime you change tires too. Any place that changes tires will generally look at the breaks for you.

I imagine someone driving a Rolls Royce is going to take his own tires off

Need diagram for a 2004 chevy avalanche brake line

Brake line diagrams have never been avail
& you don't need them

If your replacing a rusted out brake tube, you
fabricate & duplicate the part your replacing

Given some experience you really could pump
a complete vehicle from scratch

To be working on any product, you have to understand
how it works & how to diagnose & make repairs,of coarse
almost no one has the thousands of dollars in tools at home
to do much on a car

I see you said can't flair line correctly

If that skill is lacking or you do not have the correct
tools your done

Brake tubing is only avail at auto parts stores in different
lengths of straight tubing, as you probably know

No diagrams
No ready made what ever tubing your replacing

Shouldn't say this,but repair shops don't do well
with brake tubing & some don't want the job
They just lack the skills & patience to do a decent job

It needs a total break repair is 1000 too much?

I would say 1000 is almost what the Tercel is worth, depending on it's mileage. Also, I really don't see why it should cost so much for a brake job on that older vehicle. Get another estimate for that brake job somewhere else.

Increasing squeaking while car is in motion.Not when applying the brakes tho. Sounds like left front wheel. Could it be a wheel seal?

Brake pads worn indicators are doing there job and letting you know that the brake pads are going to need to be replaced soon. You may have another 500 miles before you really need to get the brake pads replaced. Good luck and don't wait to long that you end up replacing the rotors too.

As im pressing on the break from going about 45 mph the steering wheel shake as do the whole car could it need an allignment

that seems like you have a warpped rotor. If you need an alignment your car will veer to one side of the road or the other when you let go of the steering wheel at those speeds. Another way to test your front brakes for braking problems is to let loose of the steering wheel at about 35 miles per hour and press the brake quite firmly. If your car really veers right or left then, you know your problem is in the brakes. As a note, about 70% of your braking power comes from front rotors. But the shaking you are describing sounds like you could use a brake job. Pads and rotors are very inexpensive to purchase and rotors these days are not worth having turned...just buy new ones. If you are somewhat mechinically inclined, you can do a complete pad and rotor job for about 150 bucks saving yourself hundreds of dollars vs. having someone do it for you. Please let me know how everything turns out.

Need rotors and pads

gx's do not do well with aftermarket brake pads. they always end up in the dealership shop with some noise,pulsation or vibration problem and i see many people paying twice for brakes. i know brake jobs are expensive at the dealer but its really the only way to go. oem parts and an experienced tech are the best way to go.

Leaking brake line over hub of rear rusted

If you want to fix this yourself, you will need to first determine what size brake line you require. It is usually either 3/16" or 1/4". You can purchase the brake line at most autoparts stores. It will come in five foot sections. You will need enought brake line for the job and most likely a compression fitting. This job will require a tubing cutter, flairing tool, and tubing bender. Not really a hard job, you can do it!! Good luck and hope this helps.

Dont know what kind of brakes i need

go to auto parts store and tell them the make and model of the car, they will give you the correct brake pads.
the following link is for how to change the disc pad.
and for the drum brake, go to the following link

you don't need to find the correct car, although that will be ideal, but all disc and drum brake are the same. so, take a look at the video or the writeup then tackle the job.

Brake job

A brake job is something that is done properly and I've seen so many bad brake jobs in my time. I know it is rather expensive to get a brake job done but to do it yourself one has to be very carefull that it is done right. New rotors are about 30 dollars each and then there are the seals and rotors that have to be serviced properly. Needlessly to do the whole brake job would be quite a job for you if you haven't done it before.
