whoa, thanks for replying but you got me at caliper, then lost me. =D
My knowledge of the braking system is...umm close to minimal except for knowing how to change the pads and bleeding the fluids. Ok, going to do some reading...
Ok, just read up what a seized caliper is. I can imagine that a seized caliper would cause the accelerated wear, however I never saw, smelled, heard, or felt anything funny with the rear brakes. On second thought, there were a few times in which I heard what sounds like something dragging on metal when slowing down (this was with the windows down).
Wow, rebuilding the caliper seems a bit time consuming. With a baby coming ...umm any day now...I won't have time to work on it for a while. Might have to look for a used caliper then.
I do remember when I installed the rear brake pads, I applied a nice and even amount of brake quiet to the pads. Could that material have gotten into or around the piston and seized it? Thanks for the inputs fellows.
