    411: 92 civic, teg disc swap front/rear, teg mc/bb/prop valve

    after the disc swap, the pads were wearing only on the outer portion of the rotor on the inside and outside. i had the rotors resurfaced and got new pads but i still have the same problem. any ideas?

    this is a crude picture but i think you can get the idea:

    the red is where the brakes are wearing, only a portion of the pad is contacting the rotor on either side.

    ill try and get some actual pics of the shit so you can get a better idea. i have no idea why this would happen.

    there is a little nub on the pad that is supposed to line up with the slot on the piston... if its not lined up right it will cause the pad not to sit right... this is a common cause of uneven pad wear
