Brake Pads – Replacing your brake pads is the first level of regular maintenance that must be performed to keep your brakes functional. Because your brake pads are designed to absorb friction and stop your vehicle, your brakes pads will wear down and need replacement from time to time. If this is neglected, your vehicles stopping power will be greatly reduced. Damage can also occur at the brake rotors and create some very strange side effects.
Brake rotors – Brake rotors will generally last a lifetime, but if they are allowed to be destroyed through neglect of the brake pads. The costs of replacing brake rotors is much higher than replacing brake pads, so it is very prudent to avoid paying these costs by keeping your brake pads in good condition.
