What Are The Brake Pads?

Many modern vehicles are equipped with disc brakes on both the front and the rear wheels, and brake pads are part of a disc brake system. If your Chevy needs its rear brake pads replaced, you can be sure that it has rear disc brakes.

Brake pads are a vital part of your braking system. They're metal components that include a softer, friction-resistant lining. The metal part is attached to the brake calipers, while the lining is what presses against the discs, or rotors, to slow your Chevy down or bring it to a stop. This lining is made from a softer material so that friction does not damage the brake system, but it means that it will wear out faster than other components.

Why Do I Need To Have the Brake Pads Replaced?

If you fail to have the rear brake pads replaced in time, the lining may wear down entirely, exposing the metal backing. If this metal backing comes into contact with the rotors, you will hear a terrible grinding sound and the rotors will become damaged, as well as other braking components. This can lead to decreased safety and increased costs for repairs.

How Often Will My Chevy Require Rear Brake Pad Replacement?

The frequency with which you'll need brake pad replacement service varies greatly, based largely on how you brake. Your front brake pads also might need to be replaced sooner than your rear brake pads. To make your rear brake pads last as long as possible, you should always come to a gentle stop, rather than slamming on the brakes. This will keep your brake pads from working too hard, which will extend their lifespan.
