Brake Shoe Replacement Service at Byers Airport Subaru in Columbus

Brake Shoe Replacement Service Information at Byers Airport Subaru in Columbus, OH

In the world of modern Subaru vehicles, all-wheel disc brakes reign supreme, offering optimal stopping power and performance. However, in older Subaru models, drum brakes were commonly found on the rear wheels. While drum brakes may lack the sophistication of disc brakes, they boast simplicity and durability, allowing them to endure for extended periods. Despite their differences, both drum and disc brakes share a common component: the friction pad. In drum brakes, this vital component is known as the "drum shoe." Over time and use, drum shoes wear down and require replacements to maintain braking efficiency and safety. If your older Subaru vehicle is equipped with drum brakes and requires new drum shoes, look no further than the Byers Airport Subaru service department. Our skilled technicians will utilize high-quality brake shoes to ensure your vehicle stops with precision and confidence, regardless of its age or mileage. Trust us to keep your Subaru performing like new, no matter its vintage!

Explaining Brake Shoes

In vehicles equipped with drum-style brakes, the brake drum rotates in tandem with the wheel during operation. When you apply the brake pedal, the brake shoes expand and exert pressure outward against the drum’s inner surface. This action generates friction, which gradually decelerates the vehicle. However, as time passes, this friction will gradually erode the material on the brake shoes. Eventually, the friction material will wear away entirely, leaving bare metal surfaces to come into contact when braking. This not only diminishes the vehicle’s braking effectiveness but also poses a risk of significant issues elsewhere in the brake system. The absence of proper friction can lead to decreased stopping power and potentially cause damage to other brake components, compromising overall safety and performance. Therefore, it’s crucial to address worn brake shoes promptly to ensure optimal braking performance and prevent further complications.
