  • PULL

    The car pulls to one side when the brakes are applied.

  • GRAB

    "Touchy" brakes grab with the least pedal pressure.

  • DRAG

    Sticking brakes, hot wheels or an apparent engine power loss are all signs of drag.

  • SQUEAL

    Excessive squeal, screech, grinding, groaning, chatter,clatter or bang, means your brakes need attention.

  • LOW PEDAL

    The pedal nearly touches the floorboard before the brakes function.

  • HARD PEDAL

    Extreme foot pressure is equired to make the brakes function.

  • VIBRATION

    The brake pedal, steering wheel, or the entire vehicle shakes, vibrates or pulsates.

  • BRAKE WARNING LIGHT

    The parking brake is on, or, there is a serious drop in hydraulic pressure.

The Basics of Brake Hardware

Drum Brakes and Disc Brakes are the two basic types of braking systems. Both stop the car by forcing a high friction material against iron drums or discs attached to the wheels.
