05 Brakes

I have an 05 that I just got inspected the guy that did it said that I need front brakes he also said that the one pad is wearing faster then the other one and that it is a fairly common problem with these trucks? He recommended getting a whole rebuilt caliper from Napa. He also said that if its just the slides that are seized just clean them up and it will be good. Just wondering if anyone has had this problem and what you did to get it straightened out.

I had my caliper seize completely up and one pad wore right down to metal, and then got stuck between my caliper and rotor in a parking lot. I had to put it in 4x4 and "pop" it out of there to get it home. I put all new rotors, pads, and calipers on the front end of the truck with about 50k miles on it. I hate NY winters. It was right under $500 for all of this and I got the "better" pads, not the cheap ones.

Was it an extreme difference?? Mine wore more on the drivers side. I didn't think much of it......... Just replaced both sides. But it wasn't dramatic.....
