 Kia Front Brake Pad Replacement Service

Kia Brake Pad Service in Ypsilanti, MI

When it comes to automotive safety, there is nothing more important to you, your passengers, and the other people on the road than your ability to stop quickly. Over the years, there have been many improvements to the way brake systems are designed. But arguably the most important has been around for over 100 years since F.W. Lanchester invented drum brakes in 1902. Since then, the tough little pads we place between the pistons and the disks have undergone a lot of changes. The materials used in brake pads have to have a lot of impressive properties in order to do their job, properties like:

– Resisting brake fade

– Mitigate the effects of moisture

– High-temperature resistance

– A high friction coefficient

– The ability to make smooth, even contact through pressure and wear

– The ability to apply friction without suffering from the effects of friction



Brake Pad Replacement

The purpose of your brake pads is to stop the metal on metal grinding that results when the brake piston makes direct contact with the disk. You know when this is happening because of the teeth grating noise it makes when your brake pads grow thin. There is also a little metal tab behind the rotors that makes a lesser grinding noise that tells you your brake pads are just beginning to wear through. When the pad is worn down, braking effectiveness is reduced and altered, and your brakes will begin to take damage.

The Importance of Healthy Front Brakes

While there is not one part of your braking system that isn’t important, it’s safe to say that your front brakes are the most important. This is because they absorb the vast majority of the inertial force, enduring massive amounts of friction and heat when used- even at moderate speeds. For this reason, your front brake pads will wear out faster than the rear brake pads. Having rear brake pads in good condition will help protect the whole system. But your front brake pads need to be replaced more often because of the greater demand placed on them. Because front brakes take more abuse than rear brakes, front brakes are also more prone to fail during use. This means healthy brake pads on your front brakes are a must.
