When should you change the brake pads on your 1986 Chevrolet C20 Suburban? It depends largely on your driving style and terrain. The majority of brake pads last between 30,000 and 40,000 miles. Factors like frequent highway driving and smooth braking can help your brake pads last longer. Hauling heavy loads and riding your brakes can shorten brake pad lifespan. Your brake pad replacement timeline also depends on the type of brake pads you have installed on your C20 Suburban. Brake pads made of certain materials tend to outlast others. Luckily, Firestone Complete Auto Care offers Chevrolet C20 Suburban brake pad replacements, coupons on brake services, and a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty on brake pads. Brake checks and brake pad replacements are some of our most popular services. For your C20 Suburban, we’ll use brake components that meet or exceed Chevrolet’s specs.
You might have a strong and reliable engine in your Chevrolet C20 Suburban. One that's ready to get you to 200,000 miles and beyond. But if you can't stop it, then it's scrap metal.
