if you think thats bad...
I did a brake job on my neighbors sons 96 Jeep Cherokee ...209,000 miles on it but he said it was about 5 years since he looked at the brakes...WTH.....the right rear piston was making contact to the rotor, actually ground some of the piston away. Nothing left of the rear pads and the front pads had the shape of wood shims. I know the unwritten rule of brake jobs is a three to one ( 3 front brake jobs to every one rear brake job) but I do check and bleed every time I take of the front calipers. I wish I had taken some pictures of that one. That is his wife's daily driver and they have two young kids....I gave him a ear full when he picked it up. Since then he changed the calipers and bled the system. Don't forget to look at both of them at the same time every time....The only plus to that is the wheel that was on the bad caliper has a gold look to it now.
