I bought my 2017 Laramie megacab 4x4 white on all black leather interior. I see it as the Lamborghini of trucks! Anyways I’m sort new to this forum, greetings and respects to all viewers and fellow #cummins owner. My question is when do you have to replace your break pads. As in miles. I bought mine with 0 miles I’m down to 22k now. Any fees back is appreciated! Ps. They squeak on days and then it stops.
Well, when they BREAK
, then you have to replace them, but if they aren't broken, they can last a long time.
And, squealing pads doesn't mean they are bad or worn out, could just be trash embedded in the material. Google "brake pad bedding" and try that before replacing the pads.
That would depend entirely on how you drive your truck. Cruise back and forth from coast to coast on the interstates unloaded and they're going to last you a quarter million miles. Max out your payload and do nothing but stop and go up and down hills, and I'll bet you'd be getting close to the squealers already. A quick google will find similar discussions and comments that put replaceable wear levels anywhere between 25,000 and 170,000 miles. Check pad wear when you rotate your tires and you'll be fine.
Quarter million??? That's nothing, I don't just drive mine unloaded, I tow heavy a lot and my front pads are still original at 389K, rear pads got replaced when the guide pins corroded and froze up, causing the calipers to stick.
