When You Need A Brake Replacement, We’re Here To Help

Disc and drum brakes are the two types of brakes that are installed in vehicles. Both types of brake systems use friction to slow your vehicle, but disc and drum brakes each have their own unique characteristics. It is important to keep track of the condition of your brake pads, brake shoes, and other components, as they will wear down over time with regular use and can cause damage to other parts of the brake system if not replaced in time. Art Morse Auto Repair is dedicated to helping you with your drum or disc brake replacements.

Warning Signs That Your Brakes Need Repairing:

There are some clear signs that you may need new pads or rotors, so if you notice any of these, don’t wait to come in.

Increased Brake Stopping Distance – Regular brake pad wear is normal over time; however, they should be, at the minimum, a quarter of an inch in thickness. Worn pads mean extended braking time and difficulty making sudden stops. If you don’t change them, it can eventually lead to dangerous driving conditions.

Brake Squeal – Squealing is the last ditch effort of your vehicle to inform you of the need for new brake pads before you start grinding your rotors and calipers. When this occurs, you’ll most likely need new brake rotors as well, a cost that can often be avoided by having brake issues repaired before that squeal becomes a grind.

Pulling – There are several brake problems that can cause pulling. Our technicians will go over your brakes in order to pinpoint the exact problem and perform any brake-related repairs you may require. Regular brake maintenance can help avoid these issues in the future. 

Vibrating Brakes – This can be indicative of warped rotors, which is a sign that you may need to replace your brakes or rotors. Our skilled auto repair mechanics can identify the nature of this problem, performing the necessary repairs and brake work required to give you a smooth ride again.

Brake Pedal Problems – Your brake pedal should be firm but even. When your brake pedal goes into an extreme one way or the other, either being too spongy or too touchy, it can indicate a number of problems. Brake repair performed by our experts can solve these problems. A soft brake pedal can indicate the need for hydraulic system repair, and brakes that are too firm may need brake fluid replacement. We’ll perform a thorough brake diagnosis to repair your vehicle correctly.
