Ceramic Brake Pads From HAB Rockhampton Stop You Quicker


Shorten Your Braking Distance and Survive


The Brake Dust Solution: We fit Ceramic Brake Pads and service your vehicle’s braking system machining the disc rotors for a perfect brake pad fit.

The benefits of routine maintenance:
Brake pads and disc rotors need to be replaced from time to time.

The friction surfaces of pads (disc brakes) or shoes (drum brakes) convert the forward motion of the vehicle into heat, which is what causes the friction surfaces (linings) of the pads and shoes to eventually wear out and require replacement.

Ceramic brake pads do the job better, stop you sooner, last longer and make very little brake dust.

Worn Brake Pads Should Be Replaced Now.

There’s a lot more to the braking system than just brake pads; it’s vital that you get the entire system checked and maintained regularly to ensure you and your family travel safely.


We recommend you check and service brake systems every six months to keep them in good working order. Maintenance and repair work on your brakes should always be carried out by the trusted professionals you'll find at Highway Auto Brakes Rockhampton.
 

What's included in the brake maintenance service?


Here's what we do:
We lubricate and adjust your parking brake cables, which helps provide even, balanced braking. Then we lubricate the caliper guide pins, star wheel adjuster, and backing plate pads on the drum brake assembly.

On disc brake systems we inspect and measure your disc rotors, clean and inspect the calipers and lubricate the guide pins. If the disc rotors are within wear limits we machine them to as new surface then reassemble the brake system with new brake pads.

At Highway Auto Brakes Rockhampton, we can service your vehicle with the Bendix Front & Rear Brake Service kit from just $197*. We offer our customers peace of mind with our industry-leading guarantees on brake services.
 

Can I get disc brake pads that don't drop dust on my wheels?


Yes you can get dust free brake pads, well almost dust free! This requires converting your brakes to ceramic. Ceramic brake pads do produce dust just like the metallics, but the dust is so light colored you don’t see it. Also because it doesn’t have metal in it, it is not corrosive and it’s not going to damage the finish on your wheels.

So, something to consider either right now or at the next brake job. It will make a world of difference in the way your wheels look.

The benefits of ceramic brake pads.


Besides being quieter, ceramic brake pads handle extremely high temperatures with little fade, allowing them to recover quickly and cause less damage to the rotors. Also, when ceramic brake pads wear down, they create a finer, lighter dust than semi-metallic pads, and the dust doesn’t stick to wheels.

Finally, studies have found that ceramic brake pads have a longer life span without ever sacrificing noise control, rotor life or braking performance.

Ceramic brake pads tend to be more expensive than semi-metallic pads. Also, ceramic pads aren’t suitable for all vehicles, so always be sure to check your owner’s manual before making a purchase. Better still let Highway Auto figure it out for you.
