How To Read Your Brakes

Six Solutions to Abnormal Wear & Performance Issues

How to Read Your Brakes Brake-caused accidents and inspections with violations are both largely preventable by effective troubleshooting in three areas:
  1. Air Pressure System - D.O.T. looks for leaks anywhere in the system. You should too.
  2. Foundation Brake - Having the push rod stroke out of adjustment is the single biggest reason for D.O.T. citing faulty brakes.
  3. Brake Lining - It can't be worn below the recommended service level or worn unevenly to any great degree.
