When should you change the brake pads on your 1985 Chevrolet C20 Suburban? It depends largely on your driving style and terrain. In general, brake pads last from 30,000 to 40,000 miles. If you drive mostly on the highway and tend to brake smoothly (as opposed to slamming on the brakes), your brake pads may last longer. Hauling heavy loads and riding your brakes can shorten brake pad lifespan. Your brake pad replacement interval also depends on what kind of brake pads you have on your C20 Suburban right now. Are you still driving with the same pads as when you bought the car? Not all brake pads are created equally. Some materials last longer. Thankfully, when you get Chevrolet C20 Suburban brake pad replacement at Firestone Complete Auto Care, you also get a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty.
