What is involved with the brakes system?

In most vehicles, disc brakes and drum brakes are the two common types of brake systems. Disc brakes are typically standard and use brake pads to apply pressure to a spinning disc rotor that is attached to the wheel. Drum brake systems incorporate brake shoes that slow the vehicle by pushing out against a spinning brake drum attached to the wheel. Both systems create friction, so brake parts are subject to a great deal of wear. We have the necessary experience and knowledge to access the level of wear and determine when replacement is needed.
