I mentioned some time ago that I noticed that my SRX had more brake dust on the REAR wheels (especially right rear) than the front. This is the first time I ever saw this. I took the car in for an oil change and had them look at the rear brakes. They said the rear pads were binding in the slides causing them to drag lightly. I washed the car today, so I'll see how much less the dust buildup is.

i might be having a similar problem. my rear right is screaching and seems to have worn more than the rear left side. ugh.

Your caliper might be frozen. When my brakes went prematurely, I had a frozen front right caliper, that was in constant contact with the disc (as evident by the constant squeak when my brakes were going)
