when your brakes on your lancer are going...

3 posts in this topic

hi all,

i have kind of a dumb question that basically applies to most cars like the lancer, once your brakes are going should you get a mechanic to look at your brakes before deciding what parts to buy?, im thinking of just getting the parts in advance (because my brakes are getting there), or should i wait until its time and let my mechanic tell me what i will need?.

If you feel like you are losing braking power then get the parts and replace them before they get to that point.  Safety first.  My brakes lasted 80k, then I started to feel a bit of loss so I jumped on a new set of rotors and pads and they made a huge difference, turns out I'd lost a lot more braking power than I'd thought.

Again, safety first.

If I remember correctly O'Reilly will check and machine rotors for you if it's needed/they have enough life in them. Go ahead and replace the pads too. Brake maintenance is routine, I wouldn't recommend going to a shop for it unless working on it yourself is out of the question.
