Some rear brakes can last up to 50,0000 - 80,000 miles, but you should ask your Chrysler service manual for advised maintenance intervals for all components.

How much does a Chrysler Brake Flush cost?

Proper vehicle inspections and basic maintenance like a brake flush can prevent you from having to deal with costly repairs in the future. Bring your Chrysler to our store to ensure your brake system is operating properly. We can check your brake pads, fluid levels, rotors, calipers, brackets and everything in your brake system.

Brake Pads | Brake Rotors | Brake Calipers

The Chrysler brake system is comprised of the following key components:

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

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 equally distribute pressure against the brake disc. Mostly, the more pistons in a caliper, the more equally the pressure from the pads is spread onto the brake disc.

How much does a brake job cost?

Brake pads for a Chrysler can cost somewhere between $150 per axle and $450 per axle depending on the type of brake pad required.

Resurfacing rotors is much cheaper than replacing them. Ask us about the chance of simply resurfacing your Chrysler rotors rather than replacing them.
