What you should know about brakes
There are two types of braking systems: standard and anti-lock braking systems (ABS). Most systems are comprised of a rotor, caliper, and brake pads (shoes). If your brake pads wear out, you might need a rotor replacement.
Don’t delay on brake repair
Have your brakes inspected at least annually.
With disc brakes, brake pads are attached to a caliper that squeezes the pads against the disc (rotor). Eventually pads wear away (from rubbing the disc every time you brake). Rotors can warp or crack. Brake calipers wear out and can develop leaks. The caliper pistons can freeze open or closed.
If these problems are ignored, metal brake components will grind on the rotor, damaging it so that it needs to be resurfaced or replaced. Don’t let it get to the point where it will cost you more than if you had taken regular care of your brakes.
Signs you need your brakes repaired:
- High-pitched squeak when you use the brakes
- Requires more foot pressure to stop than before
- Scratching/grinding noise when not braking
- Shaking or vibration when stopping
Repairing your brakes
Replaced pads restore your brakes to manufacturer specifications. We can also install upgraded parts that reduce brake noise and brake dust.
