IS it unusual to get 90,000 plus miles out of stock front pads?

It still looks like there is a lot of pad left.

No, from what I've heard, the lighter you brake the greater the brakes are biased towards rear. This is for anti-dive and is part of the electronic brake distribution built into the ABS. I haven't been able to find a reference for it but it makes sense and the rears always wear out first. Harder braking shifts the bias front due to weight shift. The rears can only brake so much, most braking power is in the front.
