One of the most important components on your vehicle to keep you out of harm’s way is your brakes. Maintaining the health of your brakes could be what saves you from a potential collision or some other unpleasant event occurring. Some parts of your brakes that should have checkups from time to time include the brake pads, calipers, rotors, drums and shoes.
If you are unsure when you should have your brakes checked out, there are a few ways to know. The biggest tell of bad brakes is when you start to hear squealing or screeching noises. When your brake pads start to wear down, there’s a small, metallic indicator that is embedded in your pad which is designed to make this noise. If the noise has a deeper sound, it could mean that your brake discs and calipers are making contact, this could lead to further, more expensive damage on your brakes.
