One of the great things about brakes is that as long as you know what to listen and look for, they will always give you warning signs before it's too late to replace, repair, or service them. Generally speaking, brake pads should be replaced every 25,000 - 50,000 miles, but driving habits, the environment in which you drive in, the hardness of brake pads, and the materials that make up the brake rotor are all factors that can either increase or decrease the life of your brakes.

Brake fluid is to your brakes what oil is to your engine. When it gets low or contaminated, it can compromise your entire braking system. Our service experts will check your brake fluid for free and replace it with high-quality fluid if necessary.
I heard from other hellcat owners that these pads cut down on brake dust significantly and were a good replacement for the stock Brembo brake pads. Well, they were correct. Since I have installed the pads, I now have hardly any brake dust after a week of driving!
I had a small shipping problem when I ordered but was quickly fixed once I contacted Amazon customer service. I've not had any issues with these since installing (5,000 miles ago). I notice a huge reduction of brake dust from the former factory OEM brakes.
Best brakes i have ever used. Period!! Have installed at least 25 set of brakes over the years and i have never had a brake this good. Smooth to the push, low brake dust and wow will it stop. Way better than the stock brakes that came on the 2013 F150. I was not given anything for this review, it is 100% honest.

First of all, are brake pads and brake shoes the same? The short answer is no. While they both carry out a similar function, they operate in different types of braking systems and have different advantages (and disadvantages).
Found in disc brake systems, brake pads are a flat piece of steel with a thick friction material layer on one side. This friction material type varies, depending on vehicle type and size and brake caliper type.

Believe it or not, these are just a few of the brake parts out there. If you'd like to know more about your brake system and ensure it's performing at its highest level, schedule a brake inspection at one of our six auto repair shops in Cleveland, Ohio today.
This information can help professional automotive technicians and home mechanics who repair and replace brakes and clutches. By law, most professional automotive shops must follow the Occupational Safety and Health Administration's (OSHA) regulations at 29 CFR 1910.1001 and specifically paragraph (f)(3) and Appendix F. These are mandatory measures that employers must implement for automotive brake and clutch inspection, disassembly, repair, and assembly operations. State and local governments with employees who perform brake and clutch work in states without OSHA-approved state plans must follow the identical regulations found under the EPA Asbestos Worker Protection Rule. While home mechanics are not required to follow the OSHA work practices (or the identical requirements under the EPA Asbestos Worker Protection Rule), by using these practices home mechanics can minimize potential exposure to asbestos if it is present and thereby reduce their risk of developing any asbestos-related diseases.
Because some, but not all, automotive brakes and clutches available or in use today may contain asbestos, professional automotive technicians and home mechanics who repair and replace brakes and clutches may be exposed to asbestos dust. Brake and clutch dust can be seen when a brake disk, drum, clutch cover, or the wheel is removed from a car, truck, or other equipment. There are also many small dust particles that cannot be seen with the eye. If the brakes contain asbestos, the dust may contain asbestos fibers, which could be inhaled.
You cannot tell whether brake or clutch components contain asbestos simply by looking at them. For newer vehicles and parts, auto manufacturers, auto parts retailers and packaging information, such as labels or Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS), may be able to tell you whether or not your brake or clutch components contain asbestos. For older vehicles,or vehicles that have had brakes replaced, you may not be able to easily find out if the brake or clutch components contain asbestos.
As a best practice, OSHA states that mechanics should assume that all brakes have asbestos-type shoes. Worn non-asbestos-type brakes cannot be readily distinguished from asbestos-type shoes. If a mechanic assumes incorrectly that a shoe is a non-asbestos type and fails to utilize brake dust control procedures, increased asbestos exposure may result.
If you work in a commercial automotive shop that performs work on more than five brake or clutch jobs per week, OSHA regulations require the use of one of the following work practices or an equivalent method such as the spray can/solvent system:
If you are not able to determine whether your brakes or clutch contain asbestos, you may want to consider having your brakes or clutch serviced at a commercial automotive shop. As noted above, OSHA requires special work practices for professional automotive technicians. If, however,this is not possible and you do not have access to the equipment professional automotive shops use to comply with the OSHA work practices, you may want to consider using the wet wipe method described in this brochure. This method has been deemed acceptable by OSHA for shops that service no more than five brake or clutch jobs per week.
Employers of professional automotive technicians must ensure that they or their waste haulers dispose of waste that contains brake or clutch dust, including wet rags used to wipe this dust, in accordance with Federal and local regulations, including the OSHA asbestos waste disposal regulations. Brake and clutch dust and other asbestos waste must be collected and disposed of in sealed, impermeable containers that are appropriately labeled (see 29 CFR 1910.1001(k)(6) and 29 CFR 1910.1001(j)(4)). These regulations do not apply to home mechanics. For home mechanics, EPA recommends that asbestos waste be double bagged and disposed of following appropriate local regulations to minimize exposure. You may contact your state agency for more disposal and other information.
Sebastian Maruhn, workshop owner: I have already heard a lot of positive things from customers about the Zimmermann brakes, am totally thrilled myself and have also installed the Zimmermann parts on my own vehicle. The performance is super.
FluidYour brake fluid works efficiently in a high heat and high-pressure environment. But over time it absorbs water from the air, and this causes gunk like rust to build up in your brake lines and reduce their efficiency. Read More About Brake Fluid
PadsThere are three basic types of brake pads including organic, metallic, and ceramic. Let the experts at Church's Auto Parts help you choose the right brake pads for your car or truck. Read More About Brake Pads
