BRAKES

Brakes are the most common 'wear and tear' item on your vehicle. They are also one of the most important safety features. Your brakes need to stop your vehicle safely and smoothly. Brakes are based on the concept of 'friction'. Remember what carpet burns feel like? It's the same concept, friction.

Brake pads consist of friction material, metal backing and shims. The friction material rides against the surface of the rotors and is a 'wear and tear' factor. Most brake pads come equipped with mechanical indicators. These indicators point toward the rotors but do not contact them. At a predetermined point of pad life, the indicator will begin to touch the surface of the rotor. You know the annoying brake squeal? One reason for this sound is your brakes are worn out and need to be replaced.

The second 'wear and tear' factor are brake rotors. Believe it or not, brake pad friction material is actually harder than the metal rotors. Ever wonder why your rotors look like a vinyl record? This is due to the heat caused by friction. Just as you can't play a broken or bent vinyl, rotors have to be smooth, straight and balanced in order to perform efficiently.
