Brakes and rotors

Asked by Apr 30, 2017 at 06:39 PM about the 1998 Chevrolet S-10 2 Dr LS Extended Cab SB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I bought front brakes and rotors for my 98 chevy
s10. Due to metal on metal braking sound. Took
front tire off,rotor looks good. Both do. Looked at
rear and those are the rotors with the grooves in
them. Not the front,they're smooth still. It has been
my understanding that the brake pedal was for the
front brakes not rear. Am I wrong? What is going
on? Please asap.

Your wrong. All 4 corners of the car help in braking. you use the front brakes more due to the weight and momentum of the car, so that is why they wear down quicker. I would be more worried about the pad thickness, but it sounds like your replacing the rear brakes as well. They might be more complex due to the parking brake.


The brake pedal for the front and rear when you press the brake pedal the brake fluid transfer from master cylinder to the all four caliber. If you look any scratch on the rotors try to do rotors service on mechanic shop with new brake pad.or buy new if you know how to replace it
