The wear indicators on this pad started making contact with the right front rotor on my way to Virginia Beach this weekend. Got the new delco pads on and machined the rotors. The remaining pads were within 1mm of this one. The delco pads came with all new clips which I thought was very cool and hip.

Still have close to 4mm on the rears. Boss.:cool:

Normally, they would be replaced with 3mm of lining left but I was trying to get every last remnant of lining out of them:rotfl:

Dang !!! Ive changed mine 3 times already and im only at 70K
Bummer:ugh:

The last 25K or so I had the bulkier 20" rims on, also had a little extra weight in the back for a while now:D

VERY NICE!!!

at 150,500 I still have the factory rears.
Fronts were changed at 77,000 I think.
But I do Los Angeles rush hour stop and go every morning and evening.

u couldve went farther, just do what i did with my geo, use the backing plate to stop until the piston blows out. I know, easier said than done, especially when that car cost me $200 and lasted me six months:yes:

I'm at 96xxx & still have about half of the material left. I bought my TB at 40,000 & the Chevy dealer said they hadn't changed them either. When you keep it stock they go waaaaaay longer.:yes:

I am near 125,000 with factory pads that appear to still have a lot of life left.

Can you tell if the new Delco pads are the same as the ones you replaced?
Our 03 EXT has 96k on the fronts and we want the SAME ones to go back on it! Especially since they make almost no dust.

I have no way of telling, when I get home in a few days I can give you the part number, maybe your local dealer can hook you up with that info.:cool:
