Brakes that work properly are essential to your safety as you drive and stop on our Northeast Ohio streets. That’s why it’s so important to carefully maintain your brakes.
In vehicles equipped with drum brakes, the brake components are housed inside a drum that rotates with the wheel. When you step on the brake pedal, brake shoes push out against the inside of the drum, slowing the wheel. Brake shoes just wear away with use from rubbing on the drum as you brake. Replacing brake shoes is a straight-forward job.
If you hear squealing or grinding when braking, have the professionals at Paradise Car Care in Ravenna, Ohio check them out. Our technicians will perform a thorough brake inspection to see what needs to be done. We’ll check for signs of brake problems and inspect other brake components to make sure they’re working properly. We’ll let you know if it’s time to replace the brake shoes or if there are other issues with your brakes that should be addressed. If you just ignore the warning signs and keep driving long after the shoes are completely worn out, metal brake components can grind against the drum, damaging it enough that it has to be resurfaced or replaced.
When you depress your brake pedal, the wheel cylinder is activated and pushes the shoes against the drum to slow the vehicle. This cylinder, and various springs within the brake, can wear out affecting your ability to stop. The worn components can be easily replaced.
The new brake shoes we put on your vehicle will restore your brakes to manufacturer’s specifications. If you prefer, we can install upgraded parts to increase your stopping power and reduce brake noise and brake dust. We can recommend several options to meet your braking requirements and your budget.
Taking care of your brakes keeps them working safely – and you could prevent premature brake repairs down the road.
