uneven brake pad wear ??

Ok well I used the search button and nothing so ask the masters. I replaced the calipers on the front of my jeep, new pads,rotors. Well I took my tire off the other day and noticed that the outside pad had wore alot and the inside pad wore very little, so whats up and how do I fix it

It could be possible you have a damaged but but its usually the calipers or rotors. Did you bleed the system and get all the air out so the calipers aren't hanging up?

When bleeding the system you always work from the caliper/wheel cylinder farthest from the Mast Cylinder and work your way forward

You'd do pass rear, driver rear; pass front, driver front on the Jeep. You bleed until the stream of fluid is free of air bubbles. If you really want to be good, after you're done bleeding them all, go around and do each one again quickly (one shot on each caliper).

How would air in the line hang the caliper? Make sure you re-greased the caliper bolts with some high-temp grease, also make sure you didn't tighten the shat out of them, those bolts barely need tightening. Other than that, make sure nothing is jambed in there that could prevent the caliper from sliding on knuckle. Also keep in mind, a little uneven wear is normal.

The YJ is no longer my DD. I have sacrificed all future retirement plans for jeep parts. I'm depending on social security!
