What kind of brake pads do you use?
For most applications we use Wearever Platinum Professional Ceramic or Semi-Metallic brake pads. These premium brake pads should last anywhere from 50k-65k miles.
Will you machine/turn the rotors when replacing brake pads?
We don’t machine rotors for several reasons. We use top of the line ceramic that can form to little imperfections in the rotors and still stay quiet. If your rotors were in need of machining we would replace them for several reasons: 1. We can replace rotors and pads for the same price most shops charge to machine rotor and replace pads. 2. When a rotor is machined you make it thinner decreasing its ability to cool properly, which leads to warping and a vibration in the pedal and/or steering wheel. We fix your brakes right the first time so you don’t have to come back in 6 months to spend more money on new rotors.
Why do my brakes squeak?
Squeaking happens for several reasons. Usually, the brake pad has worn down and the metal indicator is rubbing on the rotors. The pad can also be a poor material that will continue to make noise until replaced. Brake pads can also glaze over from being heated up and they will continue to squeak until replaced.
Why do my brakes make a grinding metal on metal sound?
Usually, grinding indicates the pads have worn all the way out. The metal backing that holds the brake pad material is all that’s left and once that contacts the rotors, it’s just metal on metal. The brake pads and rotors will need to be replaced.
Why do my brakes vibrate and/or my steering wheel shake when I press on the pedal?
This is an indication that either your front or rear brake rotors have warped. When this occurs the rotors have been compromised, they have high spots on them and the vibration will only continue to get worse.
My brake light is on what does that mean?
The brake light comes on when the brake fluid is low or there’s a malfunction in the master cylinder. If the fluid is low this is a good indication that the brake pads are worn down as well.
