Brake Drum Replacement

What is a Brake Drum ?

The Brake Drum is generally made of a special type of cast iron that is heat-conductive and wear-resistant. It rotates with the wheel and axle. When a driver applies the brakes, the lining pushes radially against the inner surface of the drum, and the ensuing friction slows or stops rotation of the wheel and axle, and thus the vehicle. This friction generates substantial heat.

Symptoms of a failing Brake Drum

Diminished braking abilities, noises while braking, break pedal not functioning.

Urgency of repair

The brakes are a fundamental component and the most important safety mechanism of every vehicle.
If your Brake Drums are failing/malfunctioning/unresponsive, then checking the Brake Drums are critical to a safe driving vehicle.
