Ram Rear Brake Pad Replacement

You'll want to get your brakes checked out during each visit to your mechanic, but you should still check your Ram maintenance schedule for details on when inspections and rear brake pad replacement is suggested. Similarly with front brake pads, your Ram rear brake pads will usually wear down at the same rate on both the left and right side of your vehicle. Unlike front brake pads, most rear brake pads wear down faster due to the brake mechanics of rear wheel drive cars. Keep in mind wear and tear on all brake components depends heavily on your driving habits.

How do you know if you need new brake pads?

Common issues that will arise when your Ram brake pads need to be replaced include squealing, screeching, grinding or squeaking when brakes are applied. You may still notice vibrations or pulsation in the pedal or steering wheel. In some cases, you will be able to smell a burning fragrance which is a result of the metal contacting the surface as your pads become bare.If you experience any of these warning signs you should take your Ram in for an examination quickly. As constantly, you should consult your vehicle's owner's manual for more details on service intervals, recommendations, and other safety concerns. You can call Larry H.
