2004 Chevy Silverado V8 Four Wheel Drive Automatic 27985 miles
My question: is it possible to, or practical to, UPGRADE the rear rotors and brake pads to after market models which are larger for better braking and pad life.
And is this a fairly easy fit or am I getting in over my head? Any suggestions?
consider me mildly mechanically inclined. I did replace the pads myself.
My 2004 Silverado LS has worn the rear brake pads and destroyed the rotors, one is scored, the other is cupped on the inside surface, with only 27985 miles. The front, are in great shape. Plenty of "meat" on the pads and smooth rotors. The rear pads are 1/2 the size of the fronts, and worn to replacement. All pads are the originals. I do plow with my truck but not commercially, a couple of driveways, and I never tow anything.
I always thought the front brakes went first.
thanks for your help.
have the same problem?
