My rear brakes wore out much sooner than the fronts on my '06 GT. I changed the rears a year ago, still haven't had to do the fronts and I have 58K on the clock. I've read a lot of stories like this.

My rear brakes were far worse than the front on my last brake pad change about a month ago. I was rather surprised myself.

I have 68000 miles on my 2006 GT, and the rear brakes are shot. The fronts are only 50% worn. I never had a vehicle before where the rears went out first, and that goes for two previous Mustangs that I have owned.

OT::kooky: Stop doing Burnouts only, this stresses the Rear Brakes

I told it, but no one was listening.

Idiot check here, but always check to make sure the E-brake is off.

I decided to replace the pads on my 07 while I was installing red caliper covers. Front pads were maybe 50% worn but I replaced them with Bendix ceramic pads. Pretty straightforward. Rear drove me nuts for a bit until I found out that the pistons screw back in, not compress. But the issue here is premature rear pad wear. The drivers side rear pads was about 2/3 gone while the passenger side rear had maybe 20% life left. Car has about 47k and im guessing the pads are the originals.
