Forgive me for I have sinned

So I've had what I think is a master cylinder or possible booster going bad for quite some time. Working 7 days a week for as long as I can remember, I have been putting this off. Well Monday I hit the brakes and she makes a new fun sound. So I tell my self I'm going to do a quick pad swap between jobs today. All I can say is wow! Pics will speak for them selves but needless to say ill be doing a master, rotors, calipers and a full flush in the next couple days. I've never see 285k mile brake components until today
Rotors are not bad but ill be back in there so ill swap them too. My drivers side caliper was pretty stuck. My brakes feel like 4 wheel drums. Hopefully no one brake checks me tomorrow

That brings back memories... The first time I did brakes on my 00, I was living on base. I backed out of the parking space to get something to eat before heading to the auto hobby shop and the pad was so thin it fell off the caliper. Fortunately I already had pads and rotors in the truck. Needless to say I had a late lunch that day.

If you are tight on funds calipers can be rebuilt pretty easily. Be sure they are not warped (are both the inner and outer pads worn evenly top to bottom or is the ware tapered). There are no real moving parts and the only thing in there that "wares" are the square seals. Only tools needed are an air compressor, large channel lock pliers (or piston press but that is a one use tool that I won't spend money on), one old pad, and thin pick tool. Clean the pistons well before reinstalling them.

So are we seeing both inboard pads down to the metal, but both outboard pads almost new? That means the caliper hasn't been floating. Gotta maintain the grease on all the places on which the caliper slides....

No the drivers ib pad was down to metal. The ob wasn't much better. The drivers caliper was not in good shape.
The pic just had new pads for reference.
