Front brakes starting to squeal...

I've got 36,000+ miles on my 2003 Ranger, and the brakes are starting to squeal.. so I need new brake pads.. I don't have the tools or the good health to change them myself, so what should I expect to pay for new pads.. ???

How long should I expect brake pads to last ??

Thanks in advance for any replies !!

im not saying your pads arent bad but just because they squeal does not mean they are bad disc brake pads are just known to squeel some times have some one check it out though so you know for sure

Thanks but I'm thinking I'll just let Mienike put on a set of pads, probably cost less that $100. So it's no big deal. They've done work for me before, they have all the tools, the lift, the parts right there and will probably have it done in a hour or so.
