Re: brakes

Depends on usage and driving style.


I've had brakes worn down to nothing in 30-40k on some of our work trucks.

450/550 pads are like twice as thick as the 250/350 ones......but none the less 90k is impressive if you are loaded the majority of the time. Our 99 has 65k and I just did the first set of pads, but it's a auto and is loaded (often heavy) the majority of the time. If you just tow it's different since you have trailer brakes.

Re: brakes

rotors will warp before pads on some trucks..
at least on mine

my freind has a superduty v10 and he said he had a brake pad come off??
he almost never uses his truck though has something like 4000 miles, and a few years on his truck.

but driving style and conditions are everything with brakes.
hot rodding in the mountains will drop your brakes to 25% life etc..

Re: brakes

Yeah, I have had pads start to come off the backing plates.....normally that will start to make noise before they actually fully separate.

Re: brakes

For the F350 I had most of the time it was empty but I had a load in the bed.

With the F550 it was loaded 100% of the time from 0-55k miles then when I bought it I used it as 40% tow 60% empty with a load in the bed.

Re: brakes

Really depends on the driving style. Do you just come up to a stop sign & stand on them, or do you coast up to the sign? Have you been brake torqueing your truck for a lot of.....(cough)....(cough)....BURNOUTS?
I'd say check em normally & change em when they need to be changed.
