When rear brakes go bad. pics

OK I set out to fix those sqweeling brakes. I take off the passenger rear tire and this is what I see.

Not too bad looks like there is a bit of life left on them.

Then I notice this.

now that looks a bit odd.
.
That should not be that thin. I could not find my brake shoe on the piston side of the caliper.

I wish I had a picture of the caliper but here is what is left of one of the pistons.


so after $130.00 trip to Advanced Auto to get a new caliper and rotor I proceed to finish the job when I found that my caliper bracket was messed up. One of the brake caliper bolts does not slide it is welded in place. So after 8 hours beating on this to get it out with a 3lb sledge I gave up and ordered a new bracket.


oh I did find my inside brake pad it was lodged between the rotor and the dust shield. it looks a bit thin too.


The onl thig I can gather is that the guy I bought the truck from did a brake jobe but when he was puting it back together the inside pad fell off and he did not notice.

Nope. The caliper pin rusting into the bracket is what caused this. It kept the brake pad against the rotor's inner surface so both the pad and rotor wore down. Eventually the friction material is worn away and the steelback gets it's turn to wear against the rotor. Once it gets thin enough it is ejected out of the bracket and then the pistons get their turn to run the gauntlet. The stainless steel caps on the piston don't take too long to wear away and soon your down to phenolic plastic piston itself.

While I don't have much presence over here, on TDS I've spent years advising to check all four brakes every one to two years to insure that all of the pins are sliding freely, the slide pin boots are in good shape on retained on the mounting lips, and the brake pads move freely in the brackets. It's a fair amount of work but with this vehicle brake design, it's the only way to prevent expensive repairs.

It's also best to do the brake check when you buy a used vehicle. If I were you, I'd be checking the other brakes as well. Although many times it's just one bad apple.

100% agree. 5,000 mile tire rotations and a quick check when doing it should prevent this. Remember; maint, maint, maint!

WOW. That is pretty bad. I do not have the pictures handy, but I had a '97 F350 that the front were so bad it was starting to grab the "fins" because the rotors had wore down to nothing.

the old adage "pay me now or pay me later" certainly applies here !
doesnt matter WHAT pads you buy...theyre cheaper than rotors, calipers and pads.

this is an EASY DIY job, no reason to pay 100s to someone when you can DIY.

theyre PRETTY when new too....
