    Got a `98 nissan sentra as my dd. Bone stock. The brakes go about every 15k miles. I notice that the pads do not wear evenly, but at an angle. When I install the brakes the pads are hard to push into the braket, like they don't fit right. I have tried different brands of brakes to make sure they were made correctly. Anyone else with this problem?

    it could be a few things... warped rotars would probably be my guess

    that or your bolts are bent that hold the caliper in place.

    I was gonna say the same thing.

    x3 on the warped rotor or possibly poorly mounted caliper(s).

    I don't get the vibration that a warped rotor usually gives. Any other suggestions?

    New rotors, calipers and pads.
