The Braking System


Your braking system within your commercial truck plays a critically important role in its ability to run properly, contributing greatly to your safety behind the wheel as well as the ability to slow and stop.

Dependent upon the type of braking system your truck features, the process involved to bring your truck to a halt could vary slightly. In most cases, though, when you press your brake pedal, it transmits pressure to your wheels via brake lines. This pressure causes friction within the brake pads and rotors, slowing the wheels down, ultimately allowing you to stop.

So, your ability to brake properly relies on a number of different components.

When Will I Need Brake Repair?


Typically, with more traditional cars, brake repair is only needed every few years. Though, because your commercial truck is being used more frequently and under more constraining conditions, you will likely broach this interval sooner.

The two components that call for the most frequent attention within your braking system are your pads and rotors. Within your vehicle's maintenance schedule, you should be able to find an accurate mileage interval at which you can expect to need repair in these areas.

Additionally, there are some signs and symptoms indicative of deteriorating brake performance that indicate the need for service. You will want to look out for these, as well…

  • High pitched squealing noise
  • Grinding sound when applying the brakes
  • Truck seems to pull to the left or right while you are braking
  • Unusual vibrations while braking
  • The brake pedal feels different; it requires more or less pressure
