December 11th, 2019 by

And as you spend your time with your vehicle, we’re always striving to make sure it stays as healthy as possible for as long as possible. And to that extent, we want you to know how you can care for your vehicle’s brakes.

When it comes to determining when to change your brakes, it comes down to having sense. That is, listening and looking. Many brake pads come with a steel shim in the pad called an indicator, and they let off a telltale squeaking noise that lets us know when it’s time to change them. However, some do not, and you can look at the brake pads themselves to see how healthy they are. You’re looking for at least ¼ of an inch of visible pad left. Don’t know how big ¼ of an inch is? Just use a pencil – they’re about a ¼ of an inch thick.

And when it is time to change your RAM’s brakes, who should you take them to? Why, your friends at Shaver Chrysler Dodge Jeep RAM& FIAT, or course!
