Default caliper bushing for 1996 Honda Accord

So, I need new caliper bushings for my 1996 Honda Accord. The mechanic
I just took it to told me that when replacing the caliper bushings I
also need to replace the brake pads (which I bought new ones two
months ago and the are currently in great shape) and replace the
rotors. Also need to bleed the brakes.

The damage would be $1,054.96. My jaw dropped to the floor at this
figure.

Is that right? Can I just replace the calipers (or the caliper
bushings) and nothing else?

I took it in with a very minor squeak/creak sound when braking

Your thoughts/advice is much appreciated....

Sounds like someone needs to make a Boat payment...

Take it to the dealer and see what they say.

Holy crap these guys are killing you. Is this a dealer?

If I needed new calipers, I'd get new calipers only unless other things were
close to the limits.

The only thing I would replace both of is if it needed rotors, I'd use new
pads. And not the other way around. If the rotors were fine and it needed
pads, pads would be all it gets.

The rotors are a bitch to remove on the '96 as I believe the axle has to
come off. Are the rotors pulsing, or past their limits?
