Brake Repair in Raleigh, NC
We Service Disc and Drum Brake Systems
Here at King’s Auto Service in Raleigh, North Carolina, we know all there is to know about automotive brakes. We are your source for brake repair and maintenance, from how they operate to what they need to remain functional and reliable! Brake maintenance is necessary for optimal operation, including regular inspections, brake pad replacement, flushing the brake fluid, and bleeding (as needed). You can also do many things between visits to protect your brake system. For instance, drive closer to the speed limit; the faster your wheels turn, the more friction and heat are created when stopping. When you can anticipate a stop — like when there’s a stop sign or red light ahead — slow down by coasting, then apply the brakes. Keep a good following distance; this helps you avoid sudden or hard stops, keeping both your brakes and your occupants safer. Stay within proper weight ratings; this helps protect your body and axles and minimizes brake wear because higher loads add strain on your brake system. And, of course, if you suspect there may be an issue with your brakes, get in touch with our brake repair team for assistance.
Common Symptoms of Brake Trouble
There’s nothing more concerning when you sense there may be a problem with your brake system or a compromise to your stopping power. Whether coming to a stop slowly or suddenly, it’s vital for your brakes to be in good condition. The easiest way to tell if something is wrong and your car may need brake repair is when your brake light comes on in your dashboard. You may hear squealing or squeaking noises, which often indicate an issue with your brake pads or brake rotors. If your steering wheel or entire vehicle shakes or vibrates when you engage the brake pedal, uneven brake rotors are likely the culprit. Additional signs of brake problems include a “spongy” or soft brake pedal (could indicate air or moisture in the system), a fluid leak, or your vehicle pulling to one side when braking, which often points to a bad brake hose or caliper. At the first sign of trouble, we encourage you to seek out the expertise here at King’s Auto Service. Our ASE-Certified technicians will listen to your concerns, perform an inspection, and troubleshoot the issue. If minor or major brake repair is needed, from brake pad replacement to master cylinder replacement, you can count on us for proper and thorough service.
