GMC SIERRA BRAKES PROBLEM

2001 GMC Sierra

Brakes problem
2001 GMC Sierra V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic 180000 miles

Since, i've owned the truck, i've had to replace the rear brake pads twice, they were worn down to the rotors, but the front pads are still like new. What could be causing this uneven wear?

Are the proportioning valve properly working? The back pads are smaller then the front so remember they will wear faster, same as with disk in front and drum brakes in the rear.

Are breaks binding?

How long do the rear pads work? Whats the average braking range? If you dont press hard enough only back breaks will activiate.
