    Some people, including myself, have replaced the front rotors with new OEM rotors and upgraded the pads to those from the 100-series. The 100-series brake pads last a lot longer than the 80-series brake pads.

    Are you going through rotors or pads quickly?

    x2 the suggestion to go up to 100 series pads in the front.

    If you are lifted, and you have not adjusted the LSPV in the rear, your rears will wear quickly. The LSPV needs to be adjusted to compensate for the change in height of the vehicle.

    All of the above, and maybe suggest a caliper rebuild? You don't give us a lot of info to work with though.. define "going through brakes" :)
