    Finally due for a brake job at 105k miles

    Brakes finally started to make a little noise after a downhill grade over by Chattanooga, so it is finally time to replace them. Found it interesting they have made it so long. I remember in the early days of this forum, people complained constantly about premature brake wear, and I kept waiting for it to happen. Well it finally did

    I will be sure to post up pics when I get the time to do the job.

    Wow, not bad! 105k!

    Are you THAT easy on the brakes?

    That's crazy, I'm currently at 25k with plenty of pad left. Of course I do mainly highway driving too. I guess my can of caliper paint will have to wait a few more years...

    I guess you win the award for longest lasting brakes! I usually get about 35k out of the fronts, and the rears went about 80k.

    Still catching up on the forum from a week of being gone. Did you ever get to doing the brake job? What did you replace, and what parts did you use?
