How vehicle braking systems work
Disc brakes and drum brakes are the two standard types of brake systems in modern vehicles. Disc brakes are the most common and incorporate the use of brake pads to squeeze a spinning disc rotor that is attached to the wheel. Drum brake systems operate with brake shoes that push out against a spinning brake drum attached to the wheel, slowing the car by means of friction. Each system creates friction, so brake parts are subject to a great deal of wear. Our professionals have the experience and knowledge to evaluate the degree of wear and assess when replacement is necessary.
