Normal for 2001 Suburban to go through brake pads without wearing down rotors?
I just completed the brake job this past weekend.
Is it normal for these models just to wear out pads without chewing up rotors? I was a little surprised as I was planning also on replacing front and rear rotors but the rotors were not even worn down. They did not even need resurfacing. There was minimal wear on the rotor surfaces but the pads were almost down to 3/16" at 170k miles. The old factory pads leave a lot of brake dust on the wheels though.
I was just happy not to spend extra on front and rear rotors.2011 Chevy Silverado LT 4WD 25k miles
