Have you recently had new brake pads and rotors installed, but are experiencing a squeal still while breaking? This is common problem which can be highly frustrating. But what is causing the brakes to squeal and how long does this noise last for after a replacement? Today we will explore this issue in greater detail. […]
Pad wear sensors (or pad wear indicators) will alert people when their pads need to be replaced. There are two kinds of these pad wear sensors: 1 – Electric – A warning light on the vehicle’s instrument panel will turn on when the built-in electric wire on the pad is disconnected. This is the indicator […]
Do you know what fade resistance is? There are two things that tends to happen with fade resistance: 1 – The temperature when the brake fade took place. 2 – How little friction coefficient changes after a brake fade takes place. Brake fade is the reduction in a vehicle’s braking power. It tends to happen […]
Coefficient Of Friction: How It Works and How Manufacturers Use This Knowledge To Create Better JDM Brake Pads
When you’re gauging a brake pad, it’s important to keep its coefficient of friction in mind. What coefficient of friction? It’s the ratio of friction force between two façades and the force that’s pushing them together. The smaller the friction coefficient, the smaller the force needed for the surfaces to slip. The higher the friction […]
Do you need to replace your brake rotors every time you replace your brake pads? This is a popular question that many consider when having to replace brake pads. Your vehicles braking system is perhaps the most important part of your driving safety and so you should consider all aspect of replacing parts carefully.
Are you considering improving your vehicle’s brakes but are unsure about the components required? Today we will explore the braking mechanics including Brake Rotors, Brake Pads and Brake Calipers.
Do your brake pads require changing but you are concerned about the costs involved? From a safety perspective, replacing your brake pads when they have worn down is vital. However ensuring you understand the process involved and costs from the beginning is important.
Vehicles need pampering and maintenance. One of the important parts of a vehicle that has to be regularly checked upon is the brake pads. Brakes are an essential component of cars that are part of its basic operation.
Are you considering replacing your car’s brake pads? Are you wondering what type of brake pad is more efficient or offers better value? When replacing your brake pads there are several factors to consider including the situations where one type of brake pad maybe better than the other and your budget.
