BRAKES & BRAKE REPAIR

At Auto Performance Repair & Customs, we want our Easley customers to have the opportunity to feel comfortable in their vehicle. You can leave the repairs and services to our professionals, but please don't hesitate to ask us questions about why a service is needed or how it occurred. Give us a call at 864-850-0600, and we will be happy to speak with you. Here is some valuable information on brake issues and corrective services Auto Performance Repair & Customs offers.

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.

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. Auto Performance Repair & Customs will give your rotors a thorough inspection and recommend your best course of action.

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 Auto Performance Repair & Customs as soon as possible.

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 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 Auto Performance Repair & Customs about when it's time for a brake fluid flush.

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 Auto Performance Repair & Customs where we will be happy to diagnose and fix the problem.

Testimonials

  • I purchased a 1977 El Camino a few years ago, and it needed some attention to get it running smoothly again. It also needed a face-lift, so I stopped in at Auto Performance to see what they had to say. Rick was very helpful and provided the knowledge necessary to get the vehicle looking and running great! I am very pleased with their efforts at Auto Performance, especially the subtle ideas to improve the look and driving of my vehicle. Rick was very upfront with all the necessary improvements and costs involved. I highly recommend Rick and his team for your car needs. Thanks guys.

  • My second visit to this shop. First one was for a repair to my tailgate which they repaired very professionally and I was impressed. However, I didn't know they also did lube and oil change until today. Great price for synthetic oil. I will be back whenever I need any type of vehicle service.
    -Wes

  • Rick and his team did an excellent job on replacing the exhaust system on our 2009 Mustang. There were a couple of questions that came up and Rick was quick to call and get the go ahead on the resolution to the issues. He was able to complete the work with in the short time frame that we had. Excellent work, Great atmosphere, customer service is heads above what most places provide today. We will return for many more enhancements to the vehicle.
    -Terry S.

  • This is my very first review I have ever written in my life so that alone says something about this place. One word describes this place best " flawless". My very first visit to Ricks shop and it was like I've known them for years. Remarkable knowledge about vehicles. He has a mixture of old school tech's with just enough new school technology to lap the competition twice! If you want a repair shop that is for the people this is your place. Tight on budget but need the job done right? This is your place. I have done my own repairs since I was 13 years old...I don't trust anyone with my vehicles until I came to this place!!! I recommend this shop to everyone! They fix absolutely everything! One stop shop, in and you are out the door blink and you would have missed something. This will become my families number 1 shop for generations to come. If you have never been here dont miss out. Nobody and I mean nobody has beaten his work or prices.
    -Charles W.

  • I made the drive up from Greenwood to Rick's shop in Easley because I know I can trust him and his crew to do reliable work at a reasonable price. My Malibu has quite a few miles on it, but the Auto Performance team treated it--and me--like we were the most valuable project on their list. Thanks, guys!
    -Claire F. K.

  • RICK AND HIS CREW DID A GREAT JOB ON MY VAN, THEY FIXED ALL MY PROBLEMS AND WORKED ABOVE AND BE ON AND AROUND MY SCHEDULE. I WOULD RECOMMEND THEM TO ANYONE AND WILL
    -Mike R.

  • I can't say enough wonderful things about Rick. He and his crew do a fanrtastic job. Rick takes the time to explain everything he is going to do. He called me gave me quotes before he did any work. Being a single mom and my son in college that meant a lot. He has worked on my son's car now a couple of times and has it running great! Check with Rick and get a quote! You will not regret it!
