Frequent Questions About Brake Repair

Can you just replace my brake pads?

A: We replace pads & rotors at the same time on all vehicles – replacing only the brake pads does not produce the same result, as it doesn’t account for imperfections caused to the brake rotor, which can lead to decreased brake pad life & potential failures. 

Do you machine or ‘fix’ brake rotors?

A: We do not re-machine or fix brake rotors. Re-machining a brake rotor leaves less rigidity and surface area than intended by the manufacturer of the vehicle, and therefore can lead to increased wear & tear on brake parts, and potentially failure. 

Do I need to replace both sides of my brake pads/rotors at the same time?

A: Yes, we absolutely recommend you replace both sides at the same time – having uneven brake pads and rotors on the driver & passenger side, even by a few millimeters difference –  can cause unpredictable effects such as pulling the vehicle to one side while braking, brake pulse, vibration, and other issues that could put you and others in danger.

When I brake my steering wheel shakes. What is that, and do I need new brakes?

A: It’s very likely faulty or warped brake rotors that are causing the vibration. However, there are other issues that could cause steering wheel vibrations/shakes –  we would recommend that you bring it in for an inspection before committing to any work.
