Great Brakes For Middle Tennessee
Hendersonville, Tennessee is a small town where plenty of people do a lot of their own repairs. One of the things that always makes us laugh is when people who tell us that they do very little work on their own cars also tell us, "I don't work on cars but I do all my own brake work though". The braking system is the most important system on any car or truck. This is why car and truck manufacturers started using technology developed for airplanes called disc brakes.
Disc brakes were originally designed to stop airplanes but it didn't take very long before automotive engineers starting using them on cars. Disc brakes are actually simpler in design than drum brakes. The disc brake system receives hydraulic pressure from the master cylinder and uses this pressure to expand the piston or pistons on the disc brake caliper. The fact that the system looks so simple has made a lot of people who know nothing about cars do their own brakes. Remember the brakes STOP THE CAR, (at least the good ones do). A lot of cars come in with brake calipers that have been damaged by people prying the pistons back into the calipers without using the correct tools. The hydraulic fluid presses the piston out if it's bore very evenly. When pushing the piston back in you need to make sure you use the correct tools to push it back in evenly or you will scratch the piston or the bore of the caliper or both.
