Why Do My Rear Brake Pads Wear Faster Than the Front

With the last 2 Landrovers that I have had, 2001 Discovery 2 V8 and a 2010 RRS TDV8 the rear brake pads wore down quicker than the front. Why would this be so given that the rear pads do much less work. Is it the way Landrover set up the brake force distribution systems operation?

YEs.

The EBD system uses the rears a lot, especially in urban stop start, to reduce brake "dive", is how I understand it. Not just Rangies, but Jags too. MY2016 HSE D SDV6

as wilf states, more braking force to the rear to prevent the nose diving .. changed my rear discs and pads 12 months before the fronts last time around .. Another Pommie Bar Steward down under

3.0 TDv6 Fuji/Ebony/Anigre, locking Diff thingy, Towpack, sunroof, rear camera, high beam annoyance and a very brand new $25 Supercheap Auto cargo net... plus.. wait for it.. OL bull bar, winch, lightforce driving lights, LR raised intake/snorkel, bash plates, rock sliders and step out protection bars.. ATR tyres.. Hibernating.....

2.7 RRS TDv6, Zermatt/Ebony GONE.AGES AGO.....
