Brake hardware encompasses numerous small but important parts that ensure your brake system functions properly and delivers optimal, noise-free performance. These parts include bleeder screws; disc brake pad clips, springs, and wear sensors; caliper boots, bushings, pins, and seals; and drum brake hold-down and return springs, self-adjuster mechanisms, and wheel cylinder links. We have these parts and many more individually and in time saving kits.

Think of a brake job as an investment of your time and money in the safety and braking performance of your vehicle. Your time is valuable and new parts like pads and rotors aren’t cheap. New brake hardware will allow you to get the most out of your investment. Instead of the noise, poor performance, and uneven wear caused by old, worn hardware, with new hardware you get smooth, quiet, and strong stopping power.

Disc brake caliper pins and bushings, and disc brake pad clips and springs wear with use and can become corroded and damaged. This can cause pads and calipers to drag and hang up. Rubber caliper pin and caliper piston boots can become cracked and torn, allowing dirt and corrosion in that can prevent smooth caliper movement and seize caliper pistons. These conditions can cause uneven pad wear, tapered pad wear, brake noise, and general poor braking performance. Installing new hardware and boots will ensure smooth sliding calipers, secure and vibration free pad mounting, and quiet, efficient, braking performance.

The brake drum completely encloses a drum brake assembly, and the friction and heat created during brake use can turn the inside of the drum into an oven, baking your brake hardware. Hardware that appears OK can become fatigued from heat and use over time, resulting in brake shoes that aren’t held in the proper position on the backing plate, don’t retract properly after application, and don’t stay in adjustment. This can cause drag, excessive pedal travel, and poor brake performance. For efficient drum brake operation, replace the hold-down and return springs, and self-adjuster mechanisms whenever brake shoes are replaced.

Replacing brake hardware is an important part of a complete brake job, one that will provide a lasting repair and the stopping power you expect. But instead of just restoring brake performance, our brake hardware is often an upgrade over OEM. Our brake hardware manufacturers are always thinking of new ways to improve brake performance and durability. The stainless steel parts have a high chromium content for increased resistance to corrosion. We even have brake pad clips for some applications that are coated on one side with PTFE to reduce friction and drag, with a rubber compound on the other side to reduce noise.

    Why is it important to do a brake fluid flush?
    If you've ever visited an automotive dealership service department, you may have been told that your vehicle needs a brake fluid flush.

After all, you have made the effort to learn more about your brakes, and you understand that occasionally, the brake pads and rotors will wear out and need replacing. However, you've never heard of a "brake fluid flush".

    Glossary of Brake Terminology
    Whether you're looking to replace worn brake pads and rotors or delving into more detailed brake repairs or upgrades that involve new calipers, proportioning valves, master cylinders, vacuum boosters, and more, you will come across a lot of different terminology when it comes to brake components. Depending on your knowledge and experience, a lot of these terms may be elementary. However, because many of them use similar words but represent completely different things, we've created this glossary to help you understand exactly what you need, and what you don't.

    Special Tools Used In Brake Service
    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 because a tool needs to be purchased. Owning the right tools and doing the job yourself will save you hundreds of dollars by sparing you a visit to the repair shop – and much more over the course of a lifetime of brake work.

    Is It Time For New Brakes?
    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.

    Tips To Get The Maximum Life Out Of Your Brake Parts
    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 will result in faster wear, the following suggestions will help you extend your brake life significantly no matter what type of brakes you have on your vehicle.
