Broken Brakes

My rear brakes have been squealing for a while, so I took them in today to have them checked. Naturally, it couldn't be something as simple as just worn pads. No, the piston has gone bad and the parking brake return spring was missing, so they have to replace the entire caliper.

Just what I needed, another big expense. This is probably going to eat up my entire paycheck. Meanwhile I also have a property tax bill due in a month that's going to eat up another full paycheck.
