Tell-Tale Symptoms of Bad Brakes
If your brakes are very loud, chances are you need new brake pads. Regardless of whether you have fluid-based brakes or air-based brakes, you’ll still always have brake pads. These brake pads compress against your brake rotor, which therefore slows down your vehicle. Over time these brake pads wear down, leaving you with nothing but a metal brake caliper. The loud sound your hearing is likely this metal brake caliper grinding against your brake rotor. We highly recommend you bring your truck in for service, for metal-on-metal contact can lead to large issues and cost you more money.
Increased Air Compressor Charging Time
Are your air compressors taking too long to charge? If so, it’s likely due to a leak somewhere in your system. Whether it be an airline or a valve, your air compressor won’t fill properly unless your system is free of breaches. This symptom is commonly paired with air suspension issues, as some of the systems may be interconnected.
