Fixing the problem might be something as simple as changing worn out brake pads or realigning wheels. There are more serious issues that our auto mechanics at Palm Beach Auto Mechanic Repair and Race Performance Shop are able to help you with, such as bad tie rods, a warped rotor, and failing struts.

To avoid any of these more serious problems from occurring, contact us today for an inspection of your brakes and suspension. If there are any repairs that need to be made, we’ll be able to handle it for you right away.


Brake Problems

Worn brake pads need to be repaired as quickly as possible. The brake pads will eventually wear out and need replacing. If you hear brakes grinding, this is an indication that they need to be replaced. This means that they have been completely worn through. If this occurs and you continue driving with worn brake pads, it will eventually damage the rotors. If rotor repairs are needed, this could really cost you.

If there is a problem with a leaky hydraulic system, it will not enable the brakes to stop because there isn’t enough hydraulic pressure. When you have worn brake shoes, there will be a squeal because they are too thin. This is when you should contact Palm Beach Auto Mechanic Repair and Race Performance Shop to allow us to replace them for you. Our certified auto mechanics are qualified to assist with any of your brake repair needs, no matter the extent of the problem.


Suspension Problems

There are just as many problems that could occur due to your suspension as your breaks. One problem that many motorists experience is worn out vehicle struts. When they wear out, they will eventually need to be replaced. If your vehicle is bouncing a lot or you notice the front end slanting to the front when you brake, it’s likely time to have your struts or shocks replaced.

If you have a suspension system that is failing, it will cause your tires to wear out unevenly. If you have suspension problems, they should be identified and repaired as quickly as possible. You don’t have to take any unnecessary chances with your safety or that or others when our auto mechanics are only a phone call away.

How Can We Help? *

Learning to drive is one thing we want to do as we grow up but in the process, we lag behind to know the importance of maintaining our car regularly. The maintenance of the car is really important. Most important ones are the inspection of the braking system and the suspension. We at Palm Beach Auto Mechanic Repair and Race Performance Shop provide the best options for brakes and the suspension.

Getting the brakes checked regularly is something really important. The first thing we learn in driving is to apply brakes. We all have those incidents when suddenly a careless kid or a dreamy stroller comes in front of our cars and all we know is a sudden reflex of applying breaks, the sudden application of brakes is really important and for that, we need to check if they are in a proper condition.

Breaks are one of the important components to ensure a safe driving. The brake pads, brake rotor, and brake caliper is what makes the car brake system. The brake system eventually becomes less efficient usually when we cover long distance and may wear out, like that of tires. Hence its regular inspection is really important. The wearing of brakes depends on various factors such as driving habits- some people push the pads really hard while others go loose on them. The road type is another factor- like if you are driving on the road with more traffic will require you to apply more pressure on the brake pads or if the area is hilly, elevated, then the breaks are applied according to that. So according to various factors, the braking system of the vehicle should be changed.


Replacement of Brakes

The brakes need to be inspected on a regular basis, as a failure of the brakes is one nightmare that we all are afraid of. Usually the hard compound brake pads last longer, hence are said to be good for long time durability. It's always a good idea to make the brakes to be inspected while the tires are rotated.

If the brakes make a jittery sound or creaking sound, it’s always good for the vehicle to be taken to an auto mechanic shop. We might think that we have all the knowledge about the vehicles, but the truth is that we are hardly aware of vehicles, their parts, the services each part requires. Hence, Palm Beach Auto Mechanic Repair and Race Performance Shop ProTek Automotive is the right place to make you aware about the best break options available and suitable for your driving habits.


Suspension System

In humans the ear consists of  a fluid which controls the balance of our body, similarly in the vehicles also there is a system which makes sure that the vehicle provides stability and balance to the vehicle, and this very system is the suspension system. The suspension system makes sure that we are having a comfortable and safe driving. In short, it ensures that one doesn’t get a sudden jolt or, shock, or vibration while driving. .  There are basically two types of suspension system: Dependent and Independent.

The suspension system makes sure that the road wheel is in right contact with that of the road. Chassis, the spring support and, shock absorbers, struts, and anti-sway bar shifts are the components that make up the suspension system. The springs are basically used to absorb energy, while we jump through the holes or bumps. 


Significance of suspension

  • Provide balance
  • Prove stability and smooth driving
  • Prevent early tire wear.
  • Maintain wheel alignment
  • Increase friction between the road and the vehicle.

There may be many signs to look for the suspension system to be changed. One of the most important signs or indication for changing the suspension is when you experience a more bumpy or shaky ride. Or when you feel that you are leaning more on turns or twist. Although one should not wait for these signs if its times for them to change one should look forward to routine servicing.
