Drum Brakes and Disc Brakes are the two basic types of braking systems. Both stop the car by forcing a high friction material against iron drums or discs attached to the wheels.
The car pulls to one side when the brakes are applied.
“Touchy” brakes grab with the least pedal pressure
Sticking brakes, hot wheels or an apparent engine power loss are all signs of drag.
Excessive squeal, screech, grinding, groaning, chatter,clatter or bang, means your brakes need attention.
The pedal nearly touches the floorboard before the brakes function.
Extreme foot pressure is equired to make the brakes function.
The brake pedal, steering wheel, or the entire vehicle shakes, vibrates or pulsates.
