Rear brakes

Wow. My rear brakes wear very quickly. I'm thinking it's ESP. I'm in a 2007 X lifted 4" with 315/70/17 Duratracs. It's a little bouncy on the interstate but NO issues.

Occasional off road - rarely pushing the limits. I've never seen the ESP light up except off road and I usually turn it off.

Anyone have some insight die me?

Yep ... The rear brakes go quicker on the Jk because of esp/BLD/traction control etc.

What's average life of rear pads with tires in the 35" range?

Hard to say. I would guess 1/2 the fronts maybe more.

Maybe a silly question:
Would LSD rear diff work against the braking traction control, causing even more wear?

No... LSD is your diff controlling the slip. Not your braking system.

That is a good amount if you are still on your stock pads , mine went out around 25k mark my jeep has 53k now and the pads are still good

And no reason you can't do rear pads and water pump the same weekend

i am at 46k and change, and about 2/3rds of my way through my second set of rear pads... but i ride them in the rocks offroading...

and yes, very easy to do brake pads and a water pump... could do them both in one afternoon.

I don't know which engine you've got or if there is much of a difference in access to the water pump on the 3.6, but I feel like I can have the 3.8 pump changed in about 20 minutes. Haven't tried it though, so don't quote me on it.

3.8 on my '07. Looks like a quick job to me too.

Just finished the rear brakes. I put EBC pads on. They are more known for motorcycle brakes and I always liked them in my bikes.

I was dead set on Adaptive One pads (about $90.00) from Napa but found a 15% off brake parts from Pep Boys and found the pads ($57.00)With the money saved, my water pump is almost free!

I'll be sure to report back on the pads.

JK's brakes are biased toward the rears. I've replaced two sets of rears for one set of fronts. Same for the rotors. I've replaced my rear rotors once in 104k miles. Still have the oem's on the front.
