One of the most popular services we offer is brake inspections. We know drivers across Auburn, Worcester, Westborough, Charlton, Holden, and Spencer want their brakes performing at their absolute best. Often, we get questions about the differences between brake components—and we're here to go into more detail.

As you know, brake routers and pads work together to make your vehicle come to a complete stop—but what is the difference? For starters, brake pads are made of soft materials and rotors are made from hard materials. Brake pads are replaced more frequently than rotors because they are less dense.

If your vehicle uses disc brakes, rotors are the discs themselves. They are located on the inside of each of your wheels and they spin at the same pace as your wheels are moving. When you press down on the brakes, the brake pads will squeeze around the rotors, making your car come to a stop.

Now, what are brake pads? Brake pads are attached to the calipers. Simply put, they face the disc brake rotors and close when you press down on your brakes. Friction is what makes your Ford F-150 or Ford Escape stop.
