Default Best brake system prices?

I have a 1998 Volvo S70 and I need to replace the rotors, calipers, and pads. I looked online at Auto Zone, NAPA, Advanced Auto, and CarID. It seems like prices are all over the place. Is there a specific company most of you go to in order to get replacement parts at a good price? I like the idea of being able to bring the parts in if there is a problem. In my area are Auto Zone, Advanced Auto, NAPA, and Walmart. Some website did ask me to measure the calipers to see if they were 10mm or 11mm. I measured the hole and it's 11mm. Any help would be appreciated. I don't want to order online and have a huge ordeal and wait to replace with correct parts if there is a mistake; which is why I am sort of shying away from CarID.

I've shopped FCP Euro and EEuroparts.com for brake parts for years, never had an issue with finding the right part. When in doubt, call them with your VIN.

The reason the prices are all over the map is that the parts suppliers/quality is all over. If you are thinking of a total makeover of the brakes (including the calipers), also consider replacing the brake hoses. When choosing brake pads, its good to understand the different between pad types ie organic, semi-metallic or ceramic. Each favors a certain type of driving but may have price differences.
