Everyone knows the importance of brakes. So it is equally important to take good care of your braking system.When you hit your brake pedal, you compress the brake fluid in the master cylinder, which sends hydraulic pressure through your brake lines to put your brake pads (or shoes) in motion. The brake pads grab your rotors to slow down or stop your vehicle. Brake pads, shoes, drums and rotors are made of materials that wear down from heat and friction, even under normal driving conditions. If you don't repair them in time, you can do significant damage to your braking system and create hazardous driving conditions for yourself.
