HOW TO REPLACE BRAKES
If you’re experiencing an issue like squealing, squeaking or grinding, pulsation from the pedal, steering wheel shimmy (or shaking), this could be an indication of worn or failing pads or rotors. AutoZone recommends replacing pads and rotors together for a complete brake job. Check out this article for general steps on how to replace brake pads and rotors in the most vehicles.
WHAT KIND OF BRAKE PADS SHOULD I BUY?
What’s in a brake pad? Your safety and security for one. Cars need to do two things more than anything else, stop and start, and the pads on front-wheel or four-wheel disc brakes make sure your car stops moving when you want it to. But what’s in a brake pad? Why are they so important, and why do we have so many different types?
SIGNS THAT YOU NEED NEW BRAKES
While your car or truck contains many features that are critical to your continued safety, your brakes are definitely toward the top of the list. In fact, how well you’ve stayed on top of yours can literally mean the difference between life and death, so it’s imperative that you know how to tell if you need new brakes.
