A brake system is crucial to the full operation of any vehicle, whether it's a car, truck, or motorcycle. Each car has similiar parts setup when it comes to the entire brake system including:
- Brake pads
- Brake rotors
- Master cylinder
- Brake calipers
- Wheel cylinders
- Brake hoses
- Brake lines
- Brake fluid
Depending on the vehicle engineering, each make & model uses most of the parts listed above. It is important to professionally clean dirt and residue every 6,000 - 12,000 miles for proper operation. Cleaning helps the brake system operate smoothly which will result in extending the life of your brake pads.
How much do brakes cost?
There are many advertisers that promote brakes for $99 or less, however this does not apply to all vehicles. The best way to avoid a large auto repair bill when it comes to changing your brakes is to change them when they are between 15%-20% life left. Large repair bills occur when other parts are damaged due to brake failure, such as the calipers can be over extended or the rotors can be damaged from excessive heat.
