BRAKES

Brakes are probably the most important and often times the most overlooked component on vehicles until its too late.

  • Brake service has changed drastically over the years.

    Many service practices that were acceptable a few years ago, may actually do extensive damage to a modern braking system. On today's vehicles, installing a set of brake pads improperly, may result in very expensive problems. The brake caliper is the lowest spot in the system and most debris and contaminants in the fluid tends to collect there. When caliper pistons are improperly pushed in, to install the brake pads, trash can be forced into your anti-lock brake system (ABS) controller or master cylinder, causing problems. This is why we thoroughly purge the system before brake work is begun. This helps eliminate moisture, trash and dirt from the system. It also keeps it out of expensive hydraulic components. With this simple change of procedure, many problems are avoided. Improper service can cause major problems. These problems sometimes show up months later, causing the client major expense.

  • Calipers can be tested for hydraulic pressure and clamping force.

    We test rather than guess to help eliminate expensive rework and premature failures.

  • Another major cause of brake problems is the use of brake pads that do not meet the original equipment manufacturer's (OEM) specifications.

    Many shops use these pads to reduce the PRICE of the brake service. We realize the PRICE is not as important as the actual COST to our client. We work very hard to provide the overall lowest cost. A cheap set of brake pads may reduce the price of the brake service by $50 or so. The resulting squeak, dust, and shudder on braking, may result in not only their having to be replaced again, but more extensive replacement of the rotors. Now that $50 savings has turned into a $300 expense.

  • Our philosophy is to do it right the first time and eliminate the aggravation and expensive rework.
