It is well known that one of the most crucial components of any vehicle are brakes. There are many things that can cause brake malfunctions, from worn discs and drums, to leaking callipers and more.
This is why it is crucial to have your brakes repaired by a brake specialist who can correctly identify the problem and expertly fix it.
The car mechanics at GC Suspension, Steering & Brakes have over 50 years combined experience in brake servicing and repairs, and are highly trained in all makes and models.
Customised Braking Solutions
Here at GC Suspension, Steering & Brakes we create customised braking solutions not only to suit your vehicle but also your personal performance requirements.
If you require increased stopping power due to load carrying or upgraded engine capacity, our specialists can tailor a braking system to your needs.
Stocking Major Brake Brands
As an independently operated and locally owned workshop, we stock all major brands at the most competitive prices.
We perform all facets of brake repairs, from brake pad replacements to entire custom made braking systems.
Certain brake components such as disc rotors, brake pads, drum rotors and drum shoes are considered consumable components, the nature of their design means that they require replacing as they wear out.
There are many signs that can indicate that your brakes are due for replacement and should be checked by our team of professionals.
Vibration under heavy braking can indicate warped or grooved disc rotors, noisy/squealing brakes can be attributed to worn out brake pads or glazed rotors.
If your vehicle pulls left or right when braking, this can signal an operational fault such as a seized calliper, or a deeper issue related to your suspension and steering.
If you notice any problems with your brake pedal such as sticking (i.e. the pedal fails to release), pulsating (the pedal is extremely heavy to push in), the pedal doesn’t engage your brakes unless it is fully depressed, or if your brake pedal becomes spongey, book in today with one of our expert car mechanics.
If your brake warning light is coming on, one or more of your brake components may be failing or due for replacement.
If your brakes are grabbing or locking with only light pressure, it is vital to you and your passengers’ safety that you have this inspected straight away.
We specialise in a range of different makes and models from passenger vehicles to 4WDs and caravans to light commercial and classic to high-performance.
Our range of brake services include disc rotor and drum machining, calliper servicing, rebuilding and replacement, brake pad and shoe replacement, wheel cylinder service and replacement, remanufacturing of flexible and hard lines and hydraulic servicing.
Please note disc rotor and drum machining can only be carried out if there is enough metal to remain with thickness tolerances according to manufacturer specifications.
We supply all brake components for all classic car restorations, no matter how rare they are, and our experienced car mechanics have the expertise to fit them all.
All brands we sell are either equal to or exceed original manufacturer specifications, so you can be confident your brakes will be repaired to the highest quality standard and with the best quality components.
If you notice any change in the effectiveness of your brakes, then it is very important to get them checked out as soon as possible.

A soft or slushy brake pedal is one of the most obvious signs your brakes need inspecting.
When you apply the brake, you should feel resistance in the pedal almost immediately.
A soft brake pedal is easy to fix once the cause has been identified. The cost is almost certainly going to be less than repairing the damage after an accident.
A vehicle which pulls to one side while braking is a sign of uneven wear on the brake discs or pads.
Whatever the cause, this is a dangerous issue which needs to be looked at sooner rather than later.
Squeaky brakes are a sign that your brake pads need to be replaced.
Squeaky brakes mean you should get your pads replaced as soon as possible
