Why are my Brakes Squeaking and Grinding?

Have you been hearing a squeaking noise or grinding when your car comes to a stop? When it’s your brakes making the noise, it can drive you crazy, and it’s not exactly how you imagined your car turning heads. So, what’s causing your brakes to make that noise?

Old and Worn Mechanics May be the Problem

Depending on the type of brakes your vehicle has, there are a few different potential causes. Some newer cars have disk brakes on all four wheels, although many passenger vehicles opt for drum brakes on the rear wheels. No matter which type your car has, squeaking is usually a sign of wear or rust. Whether you live in Forest city or Greenville, squeaky brakes mean it’s time to see a mechanic.

Original parts are more important than many people realize. In fact, the high metal content found in lower quality brake pads may be a source of squeaking. It is worth the drive from Gaffney or Greer to make sure you get the best parts installed by trained professionals.
