Brake Pads Provide You With Stopping Power

If you are like most drivers in the Springfield, PA region, then chances are that you want your brakes in absolute tip-top condition at all times. Your brakes are one of the most important systems on your car, truck, or SUV. The function that they perform is a pretty heavy-duty one, so it is no surprise that they experience some of the heaviest wear and tear over time.

Parts will have to be replaced from time to time, and when that happens, it is helpful to have a good understanding of how the system works. When you step on the brake pedal, brake fluid is forced through the system from the master cylinder. That causes your calipers to compress, which is where the pads are held. When that compression occurs, it causes the pads to make contact with the rotors and they then squeeze them as it spins. The resulting friction of that action is what slows your vehicle to a stop.
