    I've only had this 88 for 6 months, so I am new to her quirks....

    While disassembling the rear brakes to install new parking shoes, I noticed this odd wear on my rear pads. I'm assuming these have been on the car for roughly 7,000 miles (since 2001). The lad seems to be too "long" for the rotor diameter and is actually riding off the edge. I'm assuming not normal? There were shims on both rear calipers (different thicknesses left and right) and all appeared to be in good condition (no slack, broken. Wear, etc out of the ordinary). I'm all ears as to where to start. All 4 pads are identical which leads me to think pads were the issue Image Unavailable, Please Login

    Not unusual. Even the pads installed by the factory were a bit tall for the rotors and wore that way.

    Thank you. Very helpful to know that. Sort of an odd occurrence. I may machine the outer edge of some new pads before installation. Do you recommend a low dust but quiet street compound?
