Whats odd is not only does it eat pads in 6 months, the squealer pad doesnt squeal because the piston side pad wore more quickly right into the rotor. Also noted the piston wasnt square in its bore/pad wore at an angle. Car doesnt have abs but it has the type of master cylinder that has a brake line port for each wheel. Master cylinder is reman from advanceauto last year. Only thing I can think of is possably the right front brake line misinstalled into a rear port?? Trying to find a diagram of what each port goes to.
It could be off shore calipers that are screwed but 2 in a row??? What about the remanufactured master cylinder, if it has a brake line port for each wheel it could be a bad master, that's why I asked if it happened right after the master was installed?
