    Eek Front Brakes not wearing evenly

    My front brakes have been squeaking for about a week and I have just checked them this morning and I found that the drivers side were completely worn down and the passenger side were worn down with a good bit left on the pads Pics show how much they were worn down.

    I then went to Vauxhall to get a set of pads they quoted me £92 but did not have any in stock, then went to local car parts shop and got a set of EBC Ultimax Pads for £21.00 Don't know what they are like or how they compare to police spec pads I had on before but for £21 I cant complain

    Is it normal for the pads to go the way mine have?

    Hi I looked at mine the other day when having new tyres fitted, and mine are the same as yours. The pad with the most wear are on the drivers side. I am having new pads this week.

    Just upgraded my front to 314mm & when I took my old ones off, mine seemed the same. Both had loads left on them to. So might start to wear un even when there get low.
