Brake Pads | Brake Rotors | Brake Calipers

The Toyota Tundra brake system is comprised of the following key components:

  • Rotors also called discs or drums are what your pads grip in order to stop the wheels from spinning. There are many types of brake rotors (Blank or "smooth" rotors, Cross-drilled rotors, slotted, drilled and slotted). Let Stevinson Toyota East find the best type of brake rotors for your Toyota Tundra
  • Parking Brake cable or adjuster is a steel cable used to trigger the parking brakes. When the lever is used or pedal depressed, the cable pulls the calipers or drums to initiate the parking brake of your Toyota Tundra.
  • Backing plate & return spring holds your Toyota Tundra braking system together so it can function properly.
  • Brake Calipers squeeze the brake pads up against your Toyota Tundra rotors to slow or stop your vehicle.
  • Anti-lock Braking System pump and a computer allows your vehicle to keep traction on the road continuously.
  • Brake pads or shoes are the parts that physically make contact with your brake rotor and apply pressure or friction to slow and stop your wheels from turning. It's extremely vital to keep Toyota Tundra brake pads fresh by replacing them as they experience quite a bit of stress each time they are used. Check your Toyota Tundra maintenance schedule for the advised mileage intervals.
  • Master cylinder or hydraulic cylinder converts the pressure you put on your Toyota Tundra brake pedals to power the rest of your brake system by feeding brake fluid into the brake circuit.
  • Brake Hoses transmit brake fluid from the brake line to your Toyota Tundra brake calipers. It's made of rubber and is flexible so that it can move with the suspension. These hoses need to be examined constantly for cracks and other symptoms of deterioration. Check your Toyota Tundra maintenance schedule for more data on when your hoses should be replaced.
  • Heat Shield or dust shield helps prevent grime buildup thereby lengthening the life of your brake system.

Brake pads consist of two layers: a metal backing plate and a high-friction material that includes rubber, fiber, carbon & other materials. Over time, brake pads wear down and can even start squeaking. This noise is the metal backing plate & the rotor touching, which still acts as a safety measure to let you know your brakes need repair. This can still cause damage to your rotors and, in some cases, can even start distorting them. In addition to serving as a "platform" for the friction material, the backing plate still protects the brake caliper from disproportionate heat buildup.

Brake calipers cover the rotors and contain pistons. The amount of pistons depends on the type of brake system. Brake fluid from the master cylinder forces these pistons to maneuver the brake pads against the disc. The brake caliper will evenly distribute pressure against the brake disc. Mainly, the more pistons in a caliper, the more evenly the pressure from the pads is spread onto the brake disc.
