Question about 2001 Chevrolet Silverado 1500
2001 chevy1500 changed the front pads...ok it was the rear ones that were grinding so changed the rear pads and right rear disk was grooved so replaced it... it's like driving with the e-brake on they get hot.. what adjustment did I foget to reset?
Suterman, RE: infamous GM right rear brake pad problem. A rapid inside RR brake pad wear problem is common on most GMC and Chevy trucks made from ?99 to ?04. The right rear brake caliper and pads are located in such a manner that road dirt/mud flies straight into them. This steady diet of grit causes the caliper to seize and the inside brake pad to wear out rapidly, causing the "squealing" or "grinding" noise often reported. SOLUTION: GM has had a problem with the rear brakes on their light duty trucks. There is a fix. The ALLDATA Information System shows GM Technical Service Bulletin # 00-05-23-005B, which they simply describe is a mud flap kit. This kit addresses the rapid brake pad wear problem. The GM mud flap kit is installed to block bombardment of road dirt and debris that is the cause of this very common problem. The GM kit part number is 15765007 and is pretty easy to install. I would suggest installing the mud flap kit before your next brake job.

Hello, I worked at GM for years and the right rear caliper on the trucks are a common to wear the inside pad before the others they have no fix to repair this problem from reocurring. Matter of fact I own a 2001 and I have bought a set of pads just to replace the one on my truck.

Try the parking brake is inside the rotors on the rear. Check the cables it really is dragging I bet. The bands on them are expensive so have fun.
