It goes without saying that your brakes are highly important parts of your vehicle, but there are a number of overlooked complexities with them. They rely on a number of components to stop your vehicle, even though it seems as though you press your foot on the brake pedal and bring the vehicle to a gentle stop. Of course, with this many parts involved in coming to a stop, brake kits are an easy and cost-effective option to get your brakes working at their best.

Brake kits include the parts you need to have a brand new braking system, including both the big and the small parts. Brake pads are important because they are the component to actually touch each rotor, and if they are not in good condition you are going to have problems. The rotor itself is found right behind the wheel, almost touch the brake pad, and it is under an immense amount of pressure even when you are not using the brakes, and the heat they are exposed to can also cause problems. This means the rotor needs to be made of a very strong metal like titanium.

These problems are serious because of how important your brakes are, and they include warping of the rotors because of the heat exposure. It can happen surprisingly quickly and once your rotors have become warped, they will no longer be able to work as efficiently as they are required to, meaning your brakes are not working at their optimum level. Brake pads will of course wear out, but some can wear out much faster than others while exposing your wheels to more break dust and making more noise every time you try to stop, which can be annoying and a signal of future problems.

There are a number of symptoms to allow you to take action before the problems become serious, and they should not be ignored. For instance, if you feel a 'pulsing' when you put your foot on the brake, then this can be a sign of the rotor becoming scratched or warped, and is a warning that it is not working properly. If you hear noise when you try to stop or you feel a shuddering in the pedal, these can be signs of problems with the brake pads. If you have to put your foot on the brake pedal much harder than you used to, then the symptom is obvious and immediate action should be considered.

In this article, we’ll introduce you to the specific tools designed to be used when replacing brake components and servicing your brake system. Having the right tools BEFORE you start working on your vehicle makes these types of jobs quick, easy, and doable for the home mechanic. It also prevents having to put things back together before the job is finished...
Squealing noise upon brake application is actually caused by a high-frequency vibration of metal rotors, drums, or brake pad backing plates. Excess corrosion that forms over time on non-contact, outer perimeter areas of rotors and drums is a prime cause because rust is looser and less dense in nature – therefore, more likely to create resonation.
If you've had to replace brake pads or rotors on modern vehicles, you know how expensive the parts and labor can be. Because extending your brake pad life puts real money back into your pocket, we offer some tips for those who are interested in doing just that. While it's a general rule that brake pads designed with aggressive grip levels and performance driving...

2006 Lexus RX
| Posted by | (Thornhill, ON)

Front Brake Pads and Rotors for 2006 Lexus RX330. 140,000 km. PowerStop® KOE196 - 1-Click Vented OE Replacement Front Brake Kit (319mm OD, PCD: 5x114.30) Parts were delivered on time. There were no mistakes sending me the right parts. Keep it up. So far so good. It's too early to tell how long its going to last. The last set of rotors lasted only 40,000 km. They were warped and uneven wear. The rotors and the brake pads feel very smooth on braking and stopping. It would be nice if you let me write reviews after I've driven 40,000 km. The sales staff at CARiD were very friendly.
