brakes/rotors wear uneven front and rear

Hi All,

My experience is that I've replaced the front pads 4X as often as the rear
pads.  e.g. fronts about every 40K miles and the rears at about 160K whether
they needed it or not.  My car is an 81 5KT, FWD only.  I think this sort of
wear is normal for a front engine, front wheel drive car.

My .02.
