I replaced my rear brakes last spring, and they are already worn out. Based on the condition of the rotors, the front brakes don’t seem to be squeezing very hard. When I did the rear brakes, I changed the fluid all the way around with a pressure bleed system. I have a Tech 2, and performed the ABS bleed procedure. I have never seen anything like this. Proportioning valve? Brake hoses?

I doubt the fronts are not working. More than likely you have an issue with the rears that is not allowing them to realease correctly. Start with the E-brake then look at hoses etc.

I would start with a through cleaning & inspection of ALL (front & rear) of the slider pins, disassemble, clean till shiny, clean the INNER passageways with a round wire brush, replace any torn rubber boots and lube everything well with SYL GLIDE. Also be sure to clean and lube the contact points.
