Your brakes are the most important safety feature on your car and must be kept in optimal condition if they’re to slow down or stop suddenly when you need them most. Before new brake discs and drums are needed, it’s often possible to disc and drum machine out any wear and tear on the brakes while meeting the manufacturer’s log book specifications.
Disc & Drum Machining
Do My Brakes Need Resurfacing?
Not sure why your brakes may need disc or drum machining? To slow and stop your car, the brake pads squeeze the brake disc/drum, which they’re unable to do if they don’t fit flush against the surface. When wear and tear to the brake discs/drums occurs, the brake pads also wear prematurely and will often vibrate, shudder or make grinding noises. Fortunately, in many cases, brake drums and discs can be resurfaced to fit flush against the brake pads, and ensure you can safely slow down or brake suddenly or in an emergency.
