I changed the wheel cylender, and all the springs/clips. I had the rotors turned. My car still eats the brake pads down in just a couple of days. What else could it be?
Do you

Ok you are mixing parts here, so is it disc brakes? Or drum brakes? Front disc, if you changed the CALIPERS, and the pads are wearing out quickly, how are the rear brakes? The adjustment on rears? And, jack the front up, do the wheels spin freely? Or are they dragging? If dragging, open the bleeder, do they now spin freely? If so, change the flex hose, chrysler is famous for them.

The back brakes (drum). I had the rotor turned, and replaced all the parts because the wheel cylender blew apart and destroyed the last set I had on there. This set only lasted two days and I can't figure out why.

Most common problem is frozen parking brake cables. Poorly adjusted shoes, or riding with parking brakes on. Also check the shoe linings, if one has more (length) than the other, put it on towards the rear of the wheel.
