The front brake pads on your vehicle are an integral part of the braking system. When you push the brake pedal, brake fluid is pressurized and sends stopping power through the brake lines into the calipers that clamp brake pads against rotors. Front brake pads generally handle more stopping force due to the weight distribution and require more frequent repairs as they wear down faster. When your front brake pads are worn, we offer a quality front brake pad replacement by a highly qualified technician installing the highest quality genuine OEM parts.
The metal-to-metal friction of your brake pads and the rotors contacting each other wears down your brake pads a tiny bit each time you press on the brake pedal. The life of your brake pads depends on several factors, such as the environment, your driving habits, and the material quality that they are made of. Your front brake pads wear out about twice as fast as your rear brake shoes because the rear axle handles more weight and friction compared to the rear.
There are several warning signs to alert you to the need for front brake pad repair. You may hear a squealing or grinding sound when you apply the brake pedal or your vehicle may pull to one side when braking. You might have a brake light illuminated on your dashboard or you may just feel like you aren’t stopping as fast as you should be. If you notice any of these signs, you should get your braking system serviced right away. The pads will continue to wear and can cost you more in replacing other expensive parts in the long run if you wait to have them serviced. You could also find yourself in a serious car accident if your brakes go totally out.
