Are the threads something you could fix by chasers/thread fixing tools? Or are those parts easy/cheap enough to replace themselves?

They are not a particularly common thread. It's fairly fine. My set doesn't have that pitch.

I also just heard I won't get the new parts until mid-late next week.

Finally got all the parts and finished the job. Brakes are great. OEM pads seem to have slightly less sharp feel than the Hawks, but for the street are fine.

Now on to the coolant flush and a new expansion tank, thermostat, and accessory belt. All items preventive except for coolant, which I have a feeling is the factory stuff and the car is almost 10 years and 95k miles.
