    Question2006 STS - Issue with excessive brake dust on one Rear wheel - Why?

    2006 STS with JE5 brake package and 72,000 miles on the odometer.

    Passenger side rear wheel has begun to show excessive amounts of brake dust compared to other 3 wheels. Brake pads and rotors replaced about 10K miles ago on all four wheels and problem began about 2K miles ago.

    I expect to see the front wheels showing more dust than others but that is not the case, why is the passenger side Rear wheel showing up to 3 times more dusting?
