    im getting this high pitch scrapping noise from my left front
    wheel that i think is the "feeler" on the pads to let you know
    your almost out of pad..
    i pulled the wheel and it looks like my inside pad is worn, but
    my outside pad has alot of meat left on it...why?

    my s10 4X4 wears the pads at a angle wtf is up with that?

    If I recall correctly, our calipers 'float' on a keyway of sorts. Probably your sliding parts are siezed up, not allowing the caliper to move in to use both sides effectively.

    As for the S10, check all the bushings in the caliper bolts etc. as they should be able to float as necessary too. If a bushing is missing etc. it may allow the caliper to sit ****-eyed, causing your sloped wear.
