Brakes
Check the front and rear brake systems and report. Replace brake pads or shoes with a premium grade of  friction material. This material tends to last longer. Resurface drums or rotors or replace if necessary. This allows the new friction to break in properly and reduces any tendency of the brakes to squeal. Recondition or replace calipers or wheel cylinders to minimize the possibility of hydraulic leaks and extend the life of the new disc pads or shoes.

Replace disc or drum brake hardware as required. Worn and fatigued hardware increases the risk of brake squeal and premature friction wear. Inspect the master cylinder for leaks; replace or repair if necessary. Inspect steel brake lines and hoses for leaks, cracks or indication of imminent failure; replace if necessary. Inspect and adjust parking brake cables; lubricate or replace if necessary. Incomplete release of parking brakes causes premature friction wear. Repack or replace wheel bearings where required; replace grease seals to prevent leaks from developing. Flush and refill the brake system with new fluid. Break fluid absorbs moisture over time, causing corrosion within the brake system. Brake fluid should be periodically flushed and refilled to minimize the development of corrosion.

Nitrogen fill in tires
Available at the Kenmount Road location. Call 739.6660

What is Nitrogen?
Nitrogen is a dry, inert gas used to inflate airplane tires, off-road truck tires, military vehicle tires, and race car tires for improved performance, more tire mileage, better fuel economy, and increased safety.

  • More consistent tire pressure.
  • Reduced wheel corrosion.
  • Prevents inner-liner rubber deterioration due to oxidation.
  • Tires run cooler.
  • Increases tread life.
  • Increases fuel mileage.
  • Helps prevent uneven wear.
  • Oxygen in compressed air permeates through the wall of the tire, thus reducing the tire's inflation pressure. During it's journey through the tire wall, oxygen oxidizes the rubber compounds in the tire, causing under-inflation and deterioration of the rubber . Dry nitrogen will maintain proper inflation pressure and will prevent auto-ignition, will not corrode rims, extends valve core life, and will help the tire to run cooler.
Effects of Under Inflation on Tire Wear and Fuel Use
Percentage of Under Inflation Percentage of Wear Increase Fuel Use Increase
10% 5% 2%
20% 16% 4%
30% 33% 6%
40% 57% 8%
50% 78% 10%
