Brake Repair and Replacement

Good brakes are one of the most critical components of a safe, road-worthy vehicle. A regular check should be performed as part of routine maintenance. Common signs that your brake system may need to be repaired or replaced include: squealing, grinding, a sponging feeling, or pulling to the side while braking. Call the professional mechanics at 12th Street Auto Care Center or schedule your brake inspection for more information!

Braking System Components

There are several components to the braking system in your vehicle. Each plays an important role in the safety of your vehicle. There are options available that make repairs and replacement affordable. We even offer financing. Our service techs can diagnose problems, explain what is wrong, and go through each part in detail.


Thin brake pads reduce the braking ability of any vehicle. Worn brake pads can cause expensive damage to the rotors. They can create a dangerous driving situation. There are several types of pad types available that include: Non-asbestos organic (NAO), ceramic, and semi-metallic.


We recommend high quality rotors. This is because they are the foundation of any braking system. Cheap rotors increase stopping distance, may warp, and can even overheat more quickly. Brake rotors should be inspected prior to any break repair or break pad replacement.


Brake calipers may or may not need to be replaced when your brakes are serviced. Corrosion can cause uneven wear.


Drum brakes are cheaper to replace than disc systems. Many vehicles feature drum braking systems on the rear axles, and diskes for the front.
