270k on original brakes! Need to know what to order for new brake job

I hypermile, so the end result is 270k on my yaris and i still have 10 percent left! My shop is next to an auto shop and now the time has come to replace my brakes with my friends next-door doing the jobÖ Iím not looking to add any performance to my brakes Iím looking for the cheapest most cost effective brake job that I can do for my Yaris. What parts do I need for the auto shop next-door to smoothly do the job As for mentioned these brakes have never been touched so Iím going to need fluid probably a seal kit probably calipers maybe? Please let me know what my order list is thank you! Also I can tell you that all Iíve done is change the oil every 10,000 miles with Walmarts full synthetic Supertek oil And long range filter

I would just oem honestly, they last the longest, so they brake the best? Probably not, but they clearly are reliable for getting that many miles out of it, I just did my rear drums for the first time at 172k and they had 3mm left on the brake shoe still, I was impressed so I return what I ordered and got the drums and shoe kit at the dealer

I'm betting front pads, fluid change, lube caliper sliders, and lube the 3 contact points on each rear shoe is all you're looking at. Without a thorough visual inspection of all four corners, there is no point in loading up a shopping cart with a bunch of stuff you probably won't need.

I am with WeeYari. And I am afraid that if you really did not change brake fluid for 13 years then your brake fluid is quite water-ish and the caliper pistons would be corroded AF...
When the shop pushes them back to install new pads they will start to leak.
But maybe not.
As already said - nobody would know until inspection is done.
