You may need to deglaze the rotors.

If you are going through rear pads more than front you need to rethink your braking. The rear is fine at low speeds, but becomes almost useless as speeds increase. I almost never use the rear, except in slow maneuvering and slick conditions.

Did you check the brake fluid level in the master cylinder for the rear brake? I know that on my Honda w/ ABS it took a LOT of bleeding to get all of the air bubbles out when I merely was replacing brake fluid. Your problem may be air in the brake line.
