Every driver knows how essential their car brakes are. At Broomfield Auto Center in Broomfield, Colorado, we know this too, which is why we offer the full spectrum of brake repair and maintenance services. Whether your vehicle has disc or drum brakes, we have extensive experience with both types and can take care of any issues that you may be having. While these systems are similar and share the same end goal, the way they operate and their system components are what set them apart. When the brakes are applied in a disc system, the caliper pushes the brake pads against the disc, slowing down the wheel. Drum brakes consist of a brake drum and brake shoes; the drum turns with the wheel. When the brakes are applied, the cylinder pushes the brake shoes against the drum, creating friction that slows the wheel down. Additionally, we offer brake repair for the anti-lock braking system. This system provides anti-skid braking in emergencies.
