Whether you’re installing new brakes on your classic car or working on an existing system, brake drag can be a frustrating and challenging thing to diagnose and locate. On a positive note, the problem is usually a pretty simple repair once you find the culprit.

What Is Brake Drag?

Brake drag happens when the brake pads or shoes don’t release completely when the brake pedal is released, and is typically a result of mechanical issues or hydraulics. It is highly recommended to fix the dragging brakes as soon as possible because it can lead to overheated parts and potential damage to the braking system, or worse yet, an accident.  Got Questions?  Speak With A Specialist Now!
