Auto Brake Shoe Replacement in Albany
Adams Autoworx Albany offers complete auto brake services and repairs, including brake shoe replacement. Brake shoes are an integral part of the drum brakes – many vehicles use drum brakes on the real axle, since they are not as powerful as disc brakes when it comes to stopping ability. If your vehicle has drum brakes on the rear axle, chances are that brake shoes will not need to be replaced as often as the brake pads on the front axle, but sooner or later brake shoes replacement will be necessary.
Our nationally ASE certified technicians can perform brake inspection to verify whether the brake shoes need to be replaced. We will also inspect other parts of the braking system, so we can alert you to any issues that may be developing. Brake inspection includes checking for leaks, checking emergency brake cable, checking brake lines, checking brake drums, brake cylinders, backing plate, springs, naturally we also check brake shoes for contamination, and we will check their thickness – sometimes the shoes turn out to be thick enough that brake shoes replacement can be postponed until the time of the next regular service.
At Adams Autoworx Albany we recommend regular oil change, tire rotation and brake inspections, we think of it as a “minor service” that extends engine life, and keeps your braking system functioning at its best. However, if at any time you feel that the steering wheel vibrates while braking, or the brake pedal feels “spongy”, if you hear noises or squeaks while braking, or you simply know that “something is different” about the brakes, call our Albany auto repair shop and bring the car in for a brake inspection right away – your safety is at stake.
If the inspection reveals that brake shoes replacement is indicated, we will not only replace brake shoes, but once the car is assembled back together, we will test the braking system in the shop, and we will also take your car for a test drive. This way we can test the brakes under real driving conditions.
At Adams Autoworx Albany we offer industry leading 36 month / 36,000 mile nationwide warranty. Our team is ready to help you with any brake issues or repairs your car may require. So bring your vehicle to us and get your car’s braking system thoroughly checked out by highly skilled professionals.
