Nothing on your car or truck is more important than brakes. Whether you've got all-wheel disc brakes, anti-lock brakes (also known as ABS brakes), or an older drum brake configuration, keeping your braking system in tip-top shape is very essential. With passenger car and light truck brakes, there are a couple of systems involved. The hydraulic brake parts include the brake master cylinder, brake calipers, and brake wheel cylinders, along with brake lines and brake fluid. The friction brake parts include the brake pads, brake shoes, brake discs, brake drums, and associated brake springs and brake rods. The anti-lock or ABS brake system is in the mix also if your vehicle was built in the last 15 years or so. Whatever your brake inspection turns up, we have the technical expertise and parts to keep your brakes in optimum operating condition.

We offer free brake inspections at all of our 4 locations.
