Brakes



Brakes can last anywhere from 30,000 miles up to 130,000 miles

As crazy as that sounds, it's the truth. There are a number of reasons why brakes could wear out. It could be because of the driver is not used to the weight of the vehicle and stopping to last or it could be from warn suspension that is not holding the weight of the vehicle and transferring it properly when braking which causes the brakes to under go more pressure and making it more difficult to slow down. 

For any reason having someone that knows how to determine why your brakes are wearing helps save you money and time.


When should you have your brakes checked and what to look for.

Most vehicles with front disc and rear drum brakes require more attention then vehicles with all wheel disc.  Drum brakes have to be cleaned and adjusted every other oil change to make sure that they are wearing evenly. Not doing this can create several problems that you may not realize.

For example

1. Front brakes could wear faster because they are doing most the work when your braking.

2. When rear brakes are not adjusted this could cause the springs to seize or break.

3. With the front brake doing most the work this also could cause the suspension to under go more weight transfer its not used to and could cause parts to wear much faster than they should. In a number of cases i have seen customers go throw brakes every year not because they are driving bad or a lot in a year but because they are not having their brakes checked and cleaned and adjusted when they should be and this cost them more money in the long run.

TAKE THE TIME TO HAVE IT CHECKED OUT THE RIGHT WAY!
