1999 f150 4x4 brake rotor problems!!

I Purchased My Truck With 70000 Miles On It And Shortly After Changed The Rotors And Brake Pads. I Have Only Put About 60000 Miles More On The Truck But It Eats Up My Rotors And Pads!! I Have Changed Them At Least 6 Times In 60000 Miles. Doesn't Matter What Brand I Put In Or Style. I Have Used Oem, Brembo, Slotted, Drilled, You Name It!! As Far As Pads Go, I Have The Whole Range From Oem To Ceramic To Kevlar And They Still Do Not Last. They Just Make My Wheels A Crappy Black Mess!!!

Either The Rotors Warp Or Crack On Me. The Pads Get Eaten Right Up Andi Only Use The Truck For Everyday Driving To Work And Back And I Do Not Abuse The Brakes At All. Can Someone Possibly Give Me A Solution??? Could The Problem Be With The Calipers?? The Pads Seem To Wear Unevenly From One Side Of The Rotor To The Other.

Can Anyone Help Me?????? Please!!!!!!!!! I Love The Truck And The Only Thing That Has Ever Faulted Me With It Is The Brakes.

Thanks Guys!!! I Appreciate It!!

Definately sounds like the calipers. Another possibility that you may not be aware of is if you drive with 2 feet do you rest the one on the brake pedal?

I agree with admin. Most likely the calipers are sticking.

I would also replace the hoses. After time they deteriorate on the inside and can cause the brakes to be partially applied while driving causing excessive wear.
