Brake System Types
Most cars use disc and drum brake assemblies in their brake systems. These days cars are fitted with disc brakes on all four wheels; however, some cars still use a drum brake assembly on the rear wheels. As safety awareness increases, many car manufacturers are fitting anti-lock brakes (ABS) – a computer-controlled system – as an added component to prevent wheel lockup and skidding. ABS usually work in conjunction with other vehicle systems such as stability control.
