i bet the shop will charge 50 bucks a axle for it.

id do it myself, if so like he said if its a 5th gen then its really easy and u can do it yourself.

i have a 4th gen and i have a huge nut in its place..its a bitch but i still do it.

the 5th gen has a hub over rotor design. if you wanna take the rotor out you gotta remove the spindle which involves taking the axle, caliper, 3 ball joints, 4 bolts to remove the hub assembly from the spindle, 4bolts to remove the rotor from the hub. Not an easy job.

as far as cost each rotor should be anywhere from 20-40$ depend where you get it from. I got blank brembo 4g accord for like 23$ and it not that hard to replace the rotors either do it yourself. 5g accord isn't to bad as it seem, I've done it quite a few time already. (I got a shop that i work on the 5g at :D ) and the 6g it easy.

just get a helms manual-you dont even really needa a manual to change brakes on a 5th gen-its really not that hard-but if you really are clueless, get a manual cause the money you spend on it will save you hundreds in car repair/maintinence costs-
