Why Do I Need to Replace My Rotors?

Why Do I Need to Replace My Rotors?

One thing that is more important than making sure your car can ‘go,’ is making sure that your car can stop; safely and effectively. This question arises while repairing bad brakes components. During a Brake Repair, it is often common to see brake pad wear, and to replace the brake pads once they become low. In a lot of cases, we will notice imperfections in the brake rotors as well and suggest replacement. Like many of your car’s components, your brake pads and rotors are disposal parts that wear down every time your car comes to a stop. By replacing warped rotors not only can we achieve optimal performance and safety while driving, but our brakes will also last longer. What Do Warped Rotors Look Like? Identifying Warped Brake Rotors can sometimes be challenging, and other times be obvious.  A warped rotor will have an uneven mating surface that can develop over time.

Why Are My Brakes Squeaking?

Why Are My Brakes Squeaking?

There are a number of things that can lead to squeaking, squealing, or noisy brakes, but we have found a common cause for brakes squeaking to be the usage of low quality or incorrect brake components. The compounds and metals that make up your brake pads and rotors must be capable of handling the repeated abuse and heating up and cooling down of your brake pads and rotors. If your pads and rotors are not of a higher quality, over time those compounds will begin to break down and rub against each other and result in noise. The noises that you may hear coming from your brakes can actually be micro-vibrations coming from the metal to metal contact of your braking components. The micro-vibrations occur at a very high frequency and this is what can result in a high pitched squeal or a squeak while coming to a stop or hitting the brakes. We have a Brake Repair Shop located Near Carlsbad, CA and can inspect and fix your brakes today

We always start with a thorough inspection of the brake system to see what we’ll need to service. Sometimes when the brake warning light comes on the dash it means you need brakes but sometimes it’s wrong. We’ve seen brake sensors go bad causing this light to illuminate and sometimes it just comes on based on time and mileage. For these reasons we always recommend inspecting the system before spending any money on brakes. Value – Speaking of spending money on brakes -We’ve seen our brakes last at least 20,000 miles longer than the factory pads so the money you spend on your brakes here goes alot farther than a factory or a cheap brake job.
