In general, manufacturers like GMC advise that at a minimum, front and rear brakes are removed and serviced at least once every 12,000 miles or 12 months. That includes inspecting the parking brake.

When should you change the brake pads on your 1984 GMC C3500? It largely depends on where and how you drive. Brake pads often last 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. If you often haul heavy loads or ride your brakes, your brake pads may wear out sooner. Your brake pad replacement timeline also depends on the type of brake pads you have installed on your C3500. Brake pads made of certain materials tend to outlast others. Thankfully, when you get GMC C3500 brake pad replacement at Firestone Complete Auto Care, you also get a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty. We do brake checks and brake pad replacements every day, and for your C3500, we’ll only use parts that meet or surpass GMC’s standards.
