    How long did your front brakes lasts? My truck only has 19,600 miles and the brakes are already starting to squeek. I'm thinking this isn't normal as I am easy on my brakes, meaning no sudden or hard stops. I would think this is considered wear and tear and isn't covered under warranty but squeeking at 19.6K miles just isn't normal.

    Drive in reverse and apply the brakes while backing up, if there is shit stuck between the rotor and pads it might come out

    Sometimes when brake pads get hard they squeak. That doesnt mean they are bad. When you hear metal to metal scraping you have a problem. Just crawl under the truck and see how much pad is left.

    You don't really care, do you.
    My factory Toyota pads on my '06 were changed out after 4 years and 78,000 miles and still had 25% left on the fronts and about 50% on the rears. I drive fairly agressive but I do have quite a long freeway commute which may or may not be stop/go for about 1/2 hour each way to work and back.

    Mine get a little squeaky when they are dusty, or I haven't sprayed them off in a while. Brake dust and regular dust builds up and causes a high pitch squeal once in a while, but a good spraydown at the coin-op car wash or with the garden hose under pressure usually takes care of the issue.
