If you are surveying the many repair shops in St. Thomas, you might be wondering which one is right for you. The team at Gurr Auto is proud to offer best-in-class brake services to keep your vehicle safe on the road while saving you time and money.
The braking system on a vehicle is imperative to drivers, passengers, and pedestrians alike. This system causes the rotation of the wheels to slow when you step on the brake, which helps your vehicle to come to a complete stop.
Manufacturers use two primary types of brakes for passenger vehicles: drum brakes and disc brakes. They utilize different methods of operation to bring your car to a stop.
Drum brakes use a master cylinder to send pressurized brake fluid to a wheel cylinder inside the brake drum. Due to the pressure, the pistons inside the cylinder expand and press the brake shoes against the inner surface of the brake drum. This creates friction, which helps to slow the spinning wheels.
Disc Brakes utilize a similar master cylinder to send pressurized brake fluid; however, it sends the fluid to a brake caliper, which causes the pistons to press brake pads against the brake’s rotor disks. This causes friction, which slows the wheels.
These days, many people consider disc brakes superior to drum brakes for a plethora of reasons:
