We offer full-service brake inspection, repair, and replacement. We will inspect your pads and rotors for FREE! If you hear a squeal or grinding noise during braking, you probably need new brakes! If you feel a pulsation vibration during braking, your rotors may be warped. If your vehicle veers to the right or left during braking, one or both of your calipers may be sticking. If the brake pedal feels inconsistent or sinks to the floor, this likely indicates a problem with the hydraulic system, which needs to be inspected immediately. It is a good practice to have a certified mechanic check your brakes twice a year, as part of your car’s regular maintenance. This will assure that your brakes continue to work properly and is essential in making your vehicle safe to drive. These conditions are normal wear and tear that occurs differently depending on the vehicle and driving conditions.
Wheel bearings are also a critical component of a braking system and the safety of your vehicle. It positions the wheel and rotor to the caliper, the wheel, and drum to the backing plate, and controls the input to the wheel speed sensor. More precisely, a wheel bearing is crucial for the proper function of the hub, tire, and wheel assemblies to work together. The wheel bearing provides smooth tire and wheel rotation. The most common and often most noticeable symptom of a bad wheel bearing is noise coming from the wheel or tire area of the moving vehicle. You may also notice that your steering feels “loose”. As the bearing begins to wear down, they become loose inside the wheel hub, which makes your vehicle feel loose while steering. A wheel bearing issue could also cause your vehicle to pull from one side to another, as well as uneven tire wear due to the looseness of the wheel and vibration it transmits to your tires.
