Or cause you don't clean them. Dirty boy.

If you don't already know about it, http://www.raceshopper.com/ is a great place to get replacement pads/rotors.

30k and they are about half way worn. Mine squeaks at slow speeds which it has always done, and one of my rotors is warped a little which has been since the truck was fairly new cause it shacks at certain times but not always so idk lol.

My reply was for my late 1998 OR Access Cab - she had just over 100,000 miles before the brakes needed to be replaced. That Taco was a manual transmission, and I did a lot of downshifting while slowing down.

The front pads on mine got for about 60,000 before I have to replace them. But the rear drums are the originals, thus have 220,000 on them. Makes me think the drums barely do any braking period. The fronts are easy to replace. Takes me 20 minutes or less.

I plan on doing the same (I'm at 25K now). I want to go to slotted rotors, better pads (Hawk), and ss lines. I'm not as concerned about longevity, more interested in performance.

Talked to a guy at a bar that works at a factory that makes brake drums. He said they should last the lifetime of the car and never have to be machined. The front discs handle the majority of the stopping power.

I'm sitting at 21k now... I need to check as they squeak bad, but there is probably still dirt stuck in there causing it. I wouldn't be surprised if I'm about due though, I abuse the hell out of them.

I wouldn't trust an arbitrary number in a book to the safety of properly working breaks. When they're up for new pads, they're up. Even if it's at 15k, or 120k. It depends on how you use the vehicle, hard stops, towing, ect...
