How often do 1994 GMC C1500 Suburban brake pads need to be replaced? It depends largely on your driving style and terrain. The majority of brake pads last between 30,000 and 40,000 miles. Certain factors, like driving mostly on highways and braking smoothly, can help your brake pads last longer. Alternatively, riding the brakes and hauling heavy loads can shorten their useful life. Your brake pad replacement interval also depends on what kind of brake pads you have on your C1500 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.
