msbmustang Posted July 17, 2012 Report Share Posted July 17, 2012 Well I am about to need another set of new front pads and rotors (this will be the third set). Hit 117k miles this week with the new McLeod clutch and Coast Driveline AL drive shaft. (Which are working quite nicely except for a driveline harmonic at 2kRPM.) I noticed however that my metallic brake pads, from the last brake replacement, seem to be wearing the rotors out much faster than the regular pads. At 18K miles you can feel a lip on the outside edge of the rotors now. I just wanted to know if anyone has upgraded their brakes/rotors to something more robust than the stock setup as it appears our present fronts are a bit undersized? Or is it normal to replace rotors and pads every 20-30K miles or so? I don't drive that hard by the way except for the fact I do drive it around 100 miles every day, 5 days a week. Thanks everyone for any info you may have on my "wearing the brakes/rotors out too quickly" problem. Mark / MSB Mustang Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
