Drum Brakes

Drum Brakes

Some vehicles have disc brakes on the front, and drum brakes on the rear. Drum brakes are essential to your safety, and a thorough brake inspection will uncover any maintenance or repair issues that need to be addressed to keep you stopping safely. If you are hearing unusual sounds when you brake or if your pedal is too hard to push or has a mushy feel, bring your vehicle in for a brake inspection right away.

A break inspection will find problems early on, like break components, or if it’s time to replace the shoes. Some people ignore the warning signs and keep driving long after the shoes are completely worn out. When that happens, metal brake components will grind against the drum, damaging it enough that it’ll need to be replaced.
