Rear Brake Pad Replacement with Los Angeles Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram
Your brakes are essential to the safety of your vehicle. If your brake pads are failing, your car won't stop as quickly as it should, putting you, your passengers, and other drivers on the road at risk. If your front or rear brake pads are failing, you must have them replaced as soon as possible. At Los Angeles Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram, our team of certified technicians offer comprehensive brake services, including brake pad replacement services.
What Is Rear Brake Pad Replacement?
If your rear brake pads are wearing down, they will need to be replaced by a certified mechanic. The mechanic will also check the rotors to determine if they have worn down as well. If they have, both will need to be replaced for you to drive safely.
Why Do I Need To have My Rear Brake Pads Replaced?
You need to replace your worn rear brake pads to make driving safe. If you neglect to have the service performed, you won't be able to stop as quickly as you need to. As time goes on, your brakes can fail completely. Also, if you wait too long to have your rear brake pads replaced, you will cause more damage to your vehicle. When you finally bring your car to the garage, you will be looking at a much more expensive bill.
Front Brake Pads vs Rear Brake Pads
Front and rear brake pads are different. The most significant difference between the two is that the front brake pads are larger than the rear brake pads. This is because when you stop, the weight of the vehicle shifts to the front. Also, because the front brake pads handle most of the braking process, they wear out faster than the rear brake pads.
How Often Do I Need To Have My Brake Pads Replaced?
Generally, you will need to have your brake pads replaced every 50,000 miles. This can vary based on your driving habits. If you do mostly highway driving, you won't be using the brakes as often, and you might be able to drive 70,000 miles before needing the brake pads replaced. If you do mostly city driving, you might need to have your brake pads replaced after 25,000 miles. To ensure the safety of your vehicle, you should have your brakes inspected when you have your tires rotated, which is every six months. If you want to be more aggressive with your brake safety, you can have the brake pads inspected every time you have your oil changed.
