Brakes & Wheel Bearings
Most people enjoy the rush of getting a vehicle moving. They absolutely need the ability to stop it from moving. The average vehicle weight is around 1,360 KG or 3,000 LBS. Stopping a vehicle is a critical element of safety. Good brakes aren’t optional, they are essential. Competition Muffler & Shocks provides top-notch brake service for all makes and models. We don’t stop, until you can stop, safely.
Conversely, wheel bearings facilitate smooth rotation of wheels. This reduces friction and supports ease of motion. This is opposite, but equally important to brake function. The two work as synergetic but opposing forces of your vehicle; so it moves efficiently and stops efficiently too.

Wheel bearings aren’t that noticeable on a vehicle, but they are essential. They perform a couple of very important tasks for your vehicle. First, they enable the wheel to rotate freely, with minimal friction. This assists in improved fuel economy and maintains a smooth, quiet ride. Secondly, they support the weight of the entire vehicle. Considering most vehicles travel thousands of kilometres. Supporting all that weight for huge distances is rather impressive. Some wheel bearings are totally sealed units while others are serviceable. It is very dangerous to drive on a worn-out wheel bearing, especially since it may cause the wheel to stop while driving. Additionally, a damaged wheel bearing puts a lot of stress on the hub, the CV joint, and the transmission itself.
