Now I am on to my next project - the rear brakes. I think there is something real funky going on back there.
Check out the pictures, the pads are wearing on the sides?
Finally, I think I am going to replace the rear rotor. It has 17k on it, but if you look at the picture I think it is worn out. I measured it, and It seemed like it was less than six mm. I was told it was a stuck caliper that would wear it down like that, but both pistons could be pushed back by hand. That can't be a stuck caliper, can it?
I'm not sure what you mean by wearing on the sides. The angle you showed didn't indicate anything terribly wrong to my eye. Are you confusing the beveled edge of the pad with wear? If you take pictures looked edge on at a couple of the pad edges, then any uneven wear would be easier to see.
