I just did both wheel seals and the pass side pb cable. I got lucky to catch it early, as the pb pads were still ok. But, I did research their cost on RockAuto.

PB cable was easy to test (hit pedal, look at cables for compression -- release pedal, check if they both opened back up fully), not expensive, and relatively easy to replace....except for bonehead me reattaching it to the front splitter secondly instead of firstly. I had to get creative with that (involved a pair of vicegrips, a clamp and a pair of pliers). But its done.....
