Default Front Brake Pads Worn out.

and I'm not hard at all on the brakes.
Worn right down to the metal backing. I just happened to notice the drivers side pad wear indicator just starting to touch the rotor and on disassembly discovered it before I even noticed it driving.
If it ain't broke....fix it before it is.

Gonna go with Ceramic pads.
Do you guys think that with such low miles....but it has been 6 summers....that I should install rebuilt calipers. I'd like to think I could get another 30,000 k out of them.
The rotors look perfect, so I'm not going to replace them yet either.

No need for rebuilt calipers. Be sure to lubricate the caliper pins with high temp grease and you're good to go.
