View Full Version : question about brake pads

i noticed when chaning the pads that the rear pads had the pad with the squeal bar on the outside (closer to the wheel) while the front were with the squeal bar on the inside of the rotor. I put the replacement pads the same way.

Does this seem unusual to anyone or is it correct? This is the first time the pads/rotors have been changed on this car. GM put the first ones on at the factory.

I think they are all that way - mine is.

The rears on mine have not been changed (59K miles), but the front ones do need to be on the inside. The inside front pads wear quite a bit faster, which is the reason for them being on the inside. Y
