Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS)

The ABS in your Chevy keeps your wheels from locking up and allows you to steer to safety in an emergency. When performing services, we check the mechanical operation and everything from the sensors to the computer module.

Brake Fluid Flushes

Brake fluid is a crucial element of the mechanics that makes braking work. Since fluid can't be compressed, it's a perfect medium to create the pressure needed on the front and rear brakes to stop the vehicle. Brake fluid flushes are sometimes needed to remove air from the lines and replace deteriorating brake fluid.

Brake Hoses

Brake hoses connect the brake pipes and wheel brakes through a flexible tube made of multiple layers of rubber, fabric, or steel braiding. Depending on the material, brake hoses can have a very long life. However, as a crucial component of your vehicle's braking system, they should be inspected and replaced as needed.

Brake Pad & Shoe Replacement

Chevrolet vehicles typically need new brake pads or shoes every 40,000 to 60,000 miles, depending on your driving habits. Brake pads are made of a friction material that degrades over time when you apply pressure on the brake pedal. Eventually, you need to replace the pads when the material degrades. If you don't replace worn brake pads, the rotors or discs will start to take the brunt of the friction created during braking. Replacing rotors and discs is much more costly than replacing brake pads, which are designed for easy replacements. When your brake pads wear down, you will sometimes hear squealing or squeaking – also known as a "squeak alert" to let you know it's time to replace them.

Caliper Replacement

Brake calipers are part of a braking system that squeezes the brake pads against the rotors to apply the friction that slows down the vehicle. Over time, brake calipers naturally develop corrosion, affecting the brake system's precision. Brake calipers are not consumables like brake pads and should last around 100,000 miles. Our technicians will look over the condition and make recommendations as needed.

Rotor Inspection and Replacement

Brake rotors turn the friction from the brake pads into the energy needed to resist the wheel's motions and slow the speed. When our technicians replace your brake pads, they will also smooth out any wear and recommend new rotors if you need them.
