Front brake pads

Under heavy braking for the past few weeks I noticed a mild odd feeling... figured it was getting close to time for new front brakes.  

Forward to last night on the way home from work, and the front right started grinding a bit. So, this morning at 112K miles I did a quick brake job at home.  I last did the brakes at 66K (see earlier blog post), so I got about 47K miles out of this set of pads.  Believe it or not, this is still good for me and my driving habits.   Since I use the Wagner ThermoQuiet pads, and they have a lifetime warranty, I just had to remove them and take them up to Oreilly and swap them (for free).  Took about 45 minutes to do the swap, but that including running up there and swapping the old set for the new set.   Rotors themselves looked good, so no issues there.
