GMC Rear Brake Pads & Rotor Replacement

Rear brake components ordinarily wear out well after the front brakes due to the level of stress required to slow a vehicle. Some rear brakes can last up to 50,0000 - 80,000 miles, but you should confer your GMC service manual for recommended maintenance intervals for all parts. Keep in mind you should invariably have your service department perform a multipoint check which includes inspecting your brake system.

Brake Pads | Brake Rotors | Brake Calipers

The GMC brake system is comprised of the following key components:

  • Master cylinder or hydraulic cylinder converts the pressure you put on your GMC brake pedals to power the rest of your brake system by feeding brake fluid into the brake circuit.
  • Brake Calipers squeeze the brake pads up against your GMC rotors to slow or stop your car.
  • Rotors still called discs or drums are what your pads grip in order to stop the wheels from spinning. There are many types of brake rotors (Blank or "smooth" rotors, Cross-drilled rotors, slotted, drilled and slotted). Let Buick GMC Orange Park find the best type of brake rotors for your GMC
  • Brake Hoses transmit brake fluid from the brake line to your GMC brake calipers. It's made of rubber and is flexible so that it can move with the suspension. These hoses need to be examined consistently for cracks and other symptoms of deterioration. Check your GMC maintenance schedule for more advice on when your hoses should be replaced.
  • Brake pads or shoes are the components that physically make contact with your brake rotor and apply pressure or friction to slow and stop your wheels from turning. It's very critical to keep GMC brake pads fresh by replacing them as they experience quite a bit of stress every time they are used. Check your GMC maintenance schedule for the advised mileage intervals.
  • Heat Shield or dust shield helps prevent grime buildup thereby extending the life of your brake system.
  • Backing plate & return spring holds your GMC braking system together so it can function accurately.
  • Parking Brake cable or adjuster is a steel cable used to trigger the parking brakes. When the lever is used or pedal depressed, the cable pulls the calipers or drums to initiate the parking brake of your GMC.
  • Anti-lock Braking System pump and a computer allows your car to keep traction on the road continuously.

Brake pads consist of two layers: a metal backing plate and a high-friction material that includes rubber, fiber, carbon & other materials. Over time, brake pads wear down and can even start squeaking. This noise is the metal backing plate & the rotor touching, which again acts as a safety measure to let you know your brakes need repair. This can again cause damage to your rotors and, in some cases, can even start distorting them. In addition to serving as a "platform" for the friction material, the backing plate again protects the brake caliper from disproportionate heat buildup.

Brake calipers cover the rotors and contain pistons. The amount of pistons depends on the type of brake system. Brake fluid from the master cylinder forces these pistons to maneuver the brake pads against the disc. The brake caliper will uniformly distribute pressure against the brake disc. Mainly, the more pistons in a caliper, the more uniformly the pressure from the pads is spread onto the brake disc.

What are the signs and symptoms of bad GMC brake rotors or pads?

Just like there are common brake issues, there are tremendously evident signs that can signify the cause of a brake problem. Warning signs include a shaky steering wheel, trouble stopping or a loud metal scraping sound are all indicators that you need to check your GMC brakes. Nonetheless, there are many other, and less clear, indicators that your GMC brakes may be showing which you don’t want to ignore.
