Change the front brakes and pads of your F150

Changing the front brake discs and pads of your F150 involves replacing the used rotors and pads with new ones, for better braking and more safety.

Why should you change the discs and pads of your F150 ?

Brake discs and pads are components of the braking system that deteriorate fairly quickly. Therefore, it is strongly discouraged to continue driving with worn brake pads, as this can significantly reduce braking efficiency.


If the discs and pads are damaged, the minimum wear thickness is reached or your mechanic recommends it, you should replace the brake discs and pads. If they are damaged, this can lead to reduced braking performance, accidents or damage to your car.


The replacement of your brake discs and pads is recommended every 50,000 to 70,000 miles, according to your vehicle manufacturer's specifications. However, certain signs may alert you to the need to replace your discs and pads, such as the lighting of the "brake" light on the dashboard of your Ford F150 12th gen, squeaking noises during braking, vibrations felt during braking, or advice from your mechanic.
