Don't wait like I did

Well my procrastination caused me to spend some extra money on my brake job today! This is what a brake caliper will look like if you wait too long to change out your pads. I lost the pad on friday night coming home from work thought somthing in my drivetrain let loose

Uhhh... dude i bet that sounded cool.

Did mine a week ago cause it was starting to groan a little at a stop and to my dismay still had over 50% pad left at the worst.majority looked more like 65-70% left.Anyway they are all new now and no more groan
