BRAKES & BRAKE REPAIR

If you need brake maintenance or repair, American Brake Centers Inc. can take care of your needs quickly and affordably. Call us at (502) 203-0454 for Bashford Ave or (502) 230-4279 for the Preston Hwy location or visit us in Louisville and we'll inspect your vehicle, provide cost-effective recommendations and get your vehicle up and running smoothly. Your brakes are a vital safety feature, so if you're unsure of their integrity, please get in touch with us right away!

Anti-Lock Brake System
Anti-lock Brake Systems (ABS) ensure that the wheels don't stop rotating during braking, preventing the car from skidding and offering greater control. If your ABS light comes on, visit American Brake Centers Inc. where we will be happy to diagnose and fix the problem.

Brake Fluid Flushes
Brake fluid will absorb water from the air over time, causing the brake system to become less effective and the fluid to become corrosive, possibly damaging the system. It is important to perform a brake fluid flush regularly to ensure that your vehicle is using fresh fluid. Talk to our technicians at American Brake Centers Inc. about when it's time for a brake fluid flush.

Brake Hoses
A brake hose is a tube carrying pressurized brake fluid from the master cylinder to the brakes. A crushed hose can cause a lagged or slow brake, and a leak in the hose can cause the brake, or the entire brake system, to fail. These don't need to be replaced often, but should be replaced at the first sign of cracking or wear.

Brake Pad & Shoe Replacement
Brake pad problems can usually be identified by squealing brakes. If your brake pads deteriorate completely, you'll hear a grinding metal-on-metal sound when braking, meaning that it's too late and you're ruining your rotors or drums! Those with knowledge of auto repair may be able to fix this at home, but you should always see an auto repair professional immediately if you have brake problems.

Caliper Replacement
The brake caliper houses your brake pads and fits around the rotor like a clamp, pressing the pads against the rotor when you brake. A brake caliper problem could cause uneven braking, making your car slide forward when you brake. Uneven braking can also cause your vehicle to slide out of control in bad weather conditions, so contact American Brake Centers Inc. as soon as possible.

Resurface Rotors
In a disc brake system, rotors are attached to your vehicle's wheels. When the brake pads grip the rotor, they bring both the rotor and wheels to a stop. However, the friction causes grooves and cracks to appear over time. Resurfacing brings the rotor back to a "like-new" condition, reducing squealing and wobbling. American Brake Centers Inc. will give your rotors a thorough inspection and recommend your best course of action.

American Brake Center installed new rotors and pads on my truck. My truck now stops very smoothly and with with no vibration. Scott and his team of mechanics are very good at what they do.. I'm very happy with the job they did. I will definitely go back for other mechanical work.

Scott and the crew at American Brake Centers did an excellent job finding the problem in my SUV and then fixing it. They didn't try to sell me unnecessary things. They told me what the problem was and then gave me options to fix it. I would highly recommend these guys.

Best place I have found to get car repairs. Honest, friendly, and knowledgeable staff. Always try to save me money instead of finding ways to charge more like some others. Scott is a great person to deal with. I really don't know how, but he is always cheerful and helpful.
