I was repacking my wheel bearings the other day and noticed something strange. The inside pad(the one on the piston side of the caliper)is wearing a lot faster than the outside pad. Does this mean that i'm going to have to get my calipers rebuilt or replaced, or is it something else maybe? any info is greatly apreciated.
Ray, if i'm not mistaken, and i very well may be....excessive wear on the inside pad indicates that your caliper may not be releasing properly....that the piston is not retracting as it should be....i think....and no, its not a good idea to swap brake parts...they're cheap enough. Get new parts and fix the old problem. best advice i can give ya! good luck
thanks for all the input. I was planning on trying to investigate that some more today after I get back from the alignment shop. Gotta make sure my toe-in is correct, tires are too darn expensive for abnormal wear to go unchecked.
