Replace Brake Pads
Brakes are without a doubt the most important part of your vehicle and keeping them serviced and inspected regularly is often overlooked. When servicing brakes it is always good sense to choose the best brake pads you can afford for the replacement parts needed. There are many blends of brake pads available and many regulations and standards by which brakes are made and coded. One way to be sure you have identified the best brake pads for your car is to look at the FMSI friction level coding which is the common rating method for brake pads in the USA and now used all over the world. This grading system uses letters indicating nominal friction level of the brake compound ranging from E to H. The best brake pads are the ones with the higher letter grade.
Brake Calipers & Wheel Cylinders
Brake calipers are essential to your car's ability to stop and are arguably one of the most important automobile brake parts. Most cars today have disc brakes, at least for the front wheels, anyway. But a lot of cars and trucks are now using disc brakes in the rear, too. In a disc-braking system the car's wheels are attached to metal discs, or rotors, that spin along with the wheels. The job of the caliper is to slow the car's wheels by creating friction with the rotors. If the your calipers are sticking, leaking or you are wearing down one side or your brake pads disproportional to the other, then there is a good chance you need to change your calipers. Great news, Brakes Only have experts that change out calipers.
Brake Rotor Service
Most drivers know that they need to perform a little routine maintenance to keep their vehicle in good, working condition. That may involve regularly changing the engine oil, maintaining proper tire pressure and occasionally monitoring the levels of each of the vehicle's vital fluids. Some components and systems require a little more maintenance and others require a little less. In terms of your vehicle's braking system, if you regularly check the fluid and change your brake pads, you have nothing to worry about, right? Well, not quite. You're forgetting about the rest of the brake parts, including your brake rotors. Brake rotors are an important component in the braking system that stops your vehicle. Brake rotors (they're also called brake discs) are what your vehicle's brake pads clamp down on to stop the wheels from spinning.
Brake Line Bleeding
If the term "brake bleeding" conjures up images of a clean, contented person stepping on a brake pedal while another grumpy, dirty, frustrated person yells, "Push down!" from under the car, your image would be correct. Brake bleeding is a general repair job that many people would not enjoy, but it is something that must be done throughout the lifespan of an automobile. Most brakes should be bled every two or three years to keep your brake system at optimum performance. Small amounts of air can become trapped in the brake line, creating a spongy feeling when you step on the pedal. If large amounts of air enter the brake line, your vehicle can suffer a complete braking failure.
