Front brake discs will eventually get too thin, which could result in overheating and loss of efficiency. The required thickness of a brake disc is dictated by the manufacturer.

What’s the difference between front and rear brake pads?

Smaller brake pad surface and less aggressive brake pad material for decreased friction. Smaller diameter brake rotors for less stopping torque. Thinner brake rotors are lighter and don’t have to endure that much heat. Solid brake rotors don’t have to dissipate that much heat.

When to replace brake pads and brake pads?

Just like brake pads, brake rotors should be replaced in pairs to provide balanced braking. Your local NAPA Auto Parts location has the right disc brake rotors for your vehicle. The disc brake caliper is responsible for both holding the brake pads, and holding the pistons that force the disc brake pad against the disc brake rotor during braking.

How are brake pads and brake shoes related?

Brake pads are pressed against the rotor by the brake caliper, and brake shoes are pressed against the brake drum by the wheel cylinder. Their special friction compounds are designed to handle immense forces during every braking situation.

How are brake pads riveted to the brake pads?

The new brake pads will have shims either riveted to the brake pad or unattached. If your brake pads have unattached shims, they will need to be held into place until you lock the pads in place.
