Got a Brake (and Shocks)

This afternoon, I was able to tear myself away from Day Jobbe and we drove to Sparks. About $1200 later, we had the Astro back. Lisa (who would be driving it home) initially was very concerned about the brakes not having much grab, but fortunately after driving it around the parking lot (and backing it up, which helps with auto-adjustment), it seemed to get better. That's front and rear brakes plus the rear shocks replaced, so we should be good to go for a long road trip — when long road trips are a thing again.
