Brake Repair Orange County
Brake Repair to perhaps the most important safety feature built into your vehicle, and the one you use every time you drive, is really important. Your car’s brakes are a key component to your vehicle. As they help keep your car a safe distance from other vehicles and hazards on the road.
There are two main kinds of brakes:
drum brakes and disc brakes. Drum brakes stop your car by generating friction on the brake through the brake shoes or pads. The harder you press the brake pedal the tighter the shoes squeeze against the drum.
The second common type of brake is a disc brake. Disc brakes also work to stop your vehicle by applying pressure via shoes or pads. Instead of squeezing a brake drum they press against a brake rotor or “disc.” This type of braking system uses calipers to apply the friction of the shoes onto the rotor.
