Replacement Brake Parts
How often are you checking your brakes? A vibrating steering wheel is a sure sign of warped rotors. Does your car squeal or come to a grinding halt at red lights? It may be time to replace your brake pads. The bad news is that these parts aren't typically included in a car's warranty as they are all preventative maintenance / wear and tear items that need to be replaced. The good news is that NAPA carries a wide selection of brakes and brake parts online for you to reserve and pick-up in store.
Making sure you and your passengers are safe is priority one. When you're faced with the hazards on the road, you need to make sure you're equipped with stopping power. Save on great prices on premium quality brake pads, brake rotors, calipers, wheel bearings, lug nuts, brake master cylinders and more. If you're shopping for brake parts for your Ford F150, Toyota Camry, or any other vehicle, NAPA Auto Parts has you covered.
Brake pads and brake shoes are the linings that actually do the stopping when you put your foot on the brake pedal. 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. Over time that lining wears away and needs to be replaced. Putting off replacing pads and shoes can mean decreased braking ability, as well as serious damage to rotors and drums. Your local NAPA Auto Parts location has the right brake pads and brake shoes to keep you safe on the roads.
Disc brake rotors take tremendous amounts of punishment during normal driving. While the disc brake pads are designed take the brunt of the braking force, over time the brake rotor surface itself will also wear away. Just changing brake pads without paying attention to rotor thickness can lead to less effective overall braking. When brake rotors become too thin for service or too warped to turn, the best solution is a pair of new rotors. 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. Dirt, debris, and road salt take their toll on braking components. Over time disc brake calipers can leak brake fluid or the caliper pistons can freeze-up, greatly reducing overall braking efficiency. A failing brake caliper can even cause erratic handling during braking. NAPA has brand new brake calipers and premium 100% remanufactured calipers for almost every application. Dependable, consistent brakes are as easy as a visit to your local NAPA Auto Parts location.
