After receiving your vehicle for service we road test it ourselves to identify any other problems that can be causing issues with your brake system, followed by a visual inspection of the components back at the garage. Once we find the problem, we'll provide you with different options to resolve it. We'll pinpoint the areas of concern, showing you the causes, and help you choose the best solution without sacrificing your safety. 

 

Here are the surefire signs that should be followed with a visit to your local brake shop:

  • Any lights appearing indicating issues with your ABS (Anti-Lock Brake System)
  • Brakes are not as sensitive requiring a firmer press, taking more time to stop.
  • Noises of metal scraping together
  • Pulling in either direction when you apply the brakes
  • Skidding can indicate an issue with your brake system
  • Pulsating feeling in the brake pedal
  • When you apply your brakes your steering wheel shakes
  • Brake pedal travels further than you are used to

Ignoring these signs could lead to further damage. The longer you wait the more it will cost in the end, especially if a motor vehicle accident results from the neglect.It’s always better to make sure that everything is where it should be, that there are no fluid leaks, and your brake components are in good working condition. Whether you need brake pads , brake rotors, a brake service or just the peace of mind everything is ok. You can count on us to get the job done right.

How Often Should I Have My Brakes Checked?

It can be overwhelming trying to keep track of the various service intervals for your vehicle, but it doesn't have to be. Your brakes should be checked every 12,000-15,000 miles. Our skilled staff makes sure to check the condition of your brakes with every oil change or tire rotation service as well. 

  

Looking for Brake Repair Services in Central NJ or the Tri-State Area?

Here's what you can expect with one of our typical services


To give you an idea of the processes behind our brake system services take a look below for an example. This is a quick overall outline of how we proceed when replacing a front disc brake system.

  • Inspect the caliper assembly on each wheel for signs of damage or leaking.
  • Then we check each brake pad (friction material) for thickness and document each number.
  • If we notice uneven wear (when one pad is significantly thinner than the other on the same wheel) the next thing we check is to see if there is any evidence of binding or a sticking caliper piston. 
  • A full brake service includes brake pads and brake rotors.
  • Once we have determined you only need the brake pads and rotors we remove the old parts and clean all mating surfaces.
  • We put on the new brake rotor and install the housing (We call it the cage) that holds the pads after it has been cleaned.
  • Next we lubricate all contact points using a brake grease(this grease is not applied to the friction material).
  • This helps with noise reduction and helps keep your new brakes moving freely within the caliper housing.
  • Now we are almost ready to install the brake caliper but first we have to retract the piston(s) (the piece that squeezes the pads together on your rotor to slow you down) into the caliper housing.
  • While doing this we look for the caliper to go in smooth  
  • At the same time we look for and tears or cracks in the rubber boot that protects the piston(s).
  • If there are any caliper pins or slides they also get greased.

That is a quick run down of how we do it. There is a lot more that we look for like caliper hose condition or brake lines. You depend on your brakes to stops your vehicle and you can rely on us to make sure that happens. Make an appointment today to help keep your brakes in the best shape!
