How often should you change your 1985 Ford E-350 Econoline Club Wagon’s brake pads? It largely depends on where and how you drive. Brake pads often last 30,000 to 40,000 miles. Certain factors, like driving mostly on highways and braking smoothly, can help your brake pads last longer. If you often haul heavy loads or ride your brakes, your brake pads may wear out sooner. How often you need to replace your brake pads also depends on what kind you have on your E-350 Econoline Club Wagon. Not all brake pads are created equally. Some materials last longer.
