brake pad wear

Home  \  Repairs & Maintenance  \  brake pad wear

Break pads on my front left tire wearing out unevenly. The inner pad is
wearing out much sooner than the outer pad. What is causing this?

the caliper or the part that the caliper slides on is sticking, when you get your brakes done, do the calipers and make sure you clean the crap outa the slides.

Also, make sure to lubricate the slider pins generously with a silicone based lubricant...no spray can crap, and definitely not wheel bearing grease....it must be silicone based to prevent the boots from deteriorating. A great lubricant which is still available at some parts stores is called "Syl-glide" and it works very well. I know AutoZone sells little .99 cent packets of what they call "brake lubricant", it is made by the same company as the syl-glide.
