Investing in quality brakes is critical. Increasing the weight of your vehicle by either modifications, accessories, or towing, adds extra pressure to your vehicle’s braking capacity. Whilst your standard brakes work well for a standard car, once your 4 wheel drive has been fitted out with accessories and the added weight of a camper and caravan, they might not be up to the task anymore. Added weight can increase the stopping distance of your 4WD, as the brakes will generate more heat with the added weight and this can cause brake fade. Brake fade is when your brakes have overheated and no matter how hard you push that brake pedal, the car won’t stop. This is very common when towing down a long hill or range. The brakes will only recover once they have cooled, until then, you can not stop!
The simple solution to this problem is up-grade your brakes.
We supply and install both DBA (Disc Brakes Australia) and Rugged Brake Systems.
