TUNING & BRAKES
We understand how important your vehicle brakes are and we have developed a systematic inspection process to diagnose the health of your brake system. We will tell you what parts of your vehicle brake system will need servicing imidiatly and which can wait. We will also discuss a budget with you before we order any parts.
Our quality ranges from budget brake systems to the top of the range brake pads and shoes. Brake pads and shoes purchased with this guarantee are warranted for the vehicle you would like to be maintained.
Brake systems in depth:
Your vehicle’s brake system has one job – to stop your vehicle. But it takes several key components to deliver that singular end result. To bring a vehicle to a full stop, three things are necessary: leverage, hydraulic force and friction. Leverage is supplied by the driver’s leg pressure and the brake pedal. The pedal is connected by levers and rods to the back of the power booster. The power booster uses either a engine vacuum or a hydraulic pump to apply the needed force of that leverage to the master cylinder. The master cylinder is the heart of your vehicle’s brake hydraulic system. It uses applied leverage to force a reservoir full of brake fluid through valves, steel lines and rubber hoses into hydraulic calipers and wheel cylinders. That hydraulic pressure is then used to help create friction in your brake system.
