This weekend I replaced the rotors, calipers and pads. Interesting discovery. I was always of the opinion that the front brakes on a car do the majority of the work, yet it was my BACK brakes that were shot. Is it possible my power loss is actually the rear brakes being partially engaged all the time or some of the time? What would cause rears to wear before fronts? The car was a 13k mile car so I don't "think" that someone possibly already replaced the fronts. Even so, the rears should last more than 27k (current miles) shouldn't they?
