Your vehicle stopping power isn’t just for stopping signs alone. As important as your driving wheel for steering and the accelerator for speed and pulling ahead, your brake system controls your speed and ability to drive safely. That affects you as well as others on the road, sometimes, directly. Rear brake service is just as important as the front brakes, even though they don’t see as much use as the front pair. Without them, all the stopping power would be limited to the front pads, wearing them down quickly.
Brake pads, the actual part that makes contact with the brake rotor, are designed to wear down. This simple part cost is a small expense when it provides such powerful stopping power on a vehicle, especially moving at high speed. Eventually, even the best brake pads have to be replaced, and that’s where rear brake pad replacement and the front need to be addressed timely.
Brake systems and the brake pads that provide the stopping power are designed to signal when they need service and potential replacement. However, the predictable squeals are not the only sounds brakes can make. So, a car owner needs to pay attention when driving and get attention on any odd braking sounds to be safe. Normally, brake pads have small material embedded in them that start to make high-pitched squealing sounds as the pad is applied against the moving rotor. These squeals get more pronounced as the rear brake pad wears thin and needs to be replaced. A similar chirping sound can also be a warning signal on cars with these metal parts included in the brake system as well. However, grinding sounds, stuttering sensations, period thumps, and similar are sounds of other problems. They can range from the material being stuck in the brake assembly to the rotor being warped or a securing pin being forgotten, allowing for a loose caliper part. Most if not all will cause premature failure of the brake system if ignored.
