Brakes

Changed brake pads recently on 2000 F-150, Front pads looked almost new, back pads were almost down to metal. Why the big difference?

Ineffective rear brakes, defective proportioning valve, possible broken hardware in the rear.

Thanks Joe, Sorry I used the wrong wording. This is on the front only. I meant the inside pads were down to metal and the outside pads looked new. Thanks again for your quick resonse.

That's because the calipers aren't sliding back and forth properly. Whether yours uses the long shouldered retaining bolts or the rubber retainers,THEY probably need replacing and the areas they fit into need cleaning and lubricating(never seize). If the calipers can't slide easily and center themselves when the brakes are applied, you'll get this type of uneven wear.

One thing, if you use "never-seize", you are asking for more trouble than you have now. Nearly all brake manufacturers require the use of a silicone based lubricant for lubrication. Almost all brakes done with "anti-seize" that I have seen, have been nearly glued together upon removal. It causes more problems than it fixes. Make sure to use the correct lube.
