wait.. you knew you needed new brakes and were going to replace them on wed, so you let your sister drive your truck... and she complains there is a funny noise... so YOUR BLAMiNG HER FOR BEING HARSH ON THE BRAKES??? brakes can go from squeeling to literally grinding in one day. it isn't her fault. it's yours for not replacing them sooner.

He bought the brake pads because he's been letting his sister drive it, and she said it started making a funny noise. Try actually reading a post before you berate the OP.

The female driver mods suck. A guy a work once let his wife dirve his Chevy Z24 Cavalier. It was a stick and she mangaged to snap both the front axles. I have no clue how to do that.
