Do I Need to Replace Rotors? Do I Need To Replace Rotors With Brake Pads? These are questions we get asked when a vehicle needs a Brake Job. Our recommendation is to replace the Brake Rotors and Brake Pads as set. One reason why Brake Rotors need to be replaced is because of rust jacking. When this happens the Brake Rotor starts to delaminate and have high and low spots on the surface of the Brake Rotor. When this happens, you may feel the Steering Wheel Shake when you apply your Brakes. Another reason you want to replace Brake Pads and Brake Rotors as a set is because the rust or metal filings from the old Brake Rotor may get embedded in the Old Brake Pads. If you use them over you may end up with Squealing Brakes when you stop. If your vehicle needs brakes let us know and we will be happy to check the brakes on your vehicle and give you a quote to fix them

Why Are My Brakes Grinding? This is an audible indicator that your vehicle’s Brake Pads have worn out and need to be replaced. When you hear the Brakes Grinding in your car you need to get it checked out right away. There is no friction material left on your Brake Pads and they start wearing metal to metal on your Brake Rotor. When this happens, it starts to take metal off the Brake Rotor. If you wait to long to fix it will keep eating away at the rotor till its so thin that it breaks in pieces, or the Brake Caliper Pistons will pop out causing loss of Brake Fluid and cause total Brake failure. Remember its your life at stake as well as everyone else’s that is on the road with you. Brakes are a safety item on your vehicle and you want to make sure they stay in good repair so that you can stop safely in an emergency. If you hear a grinding noise when you apply your brakes give us a call and we will be happy to check your vehicles Braking System.
