Vacuum brake boosters will probably be with us for a long time. It is the most efficient and economical way to amplify the force exerted by the driver. But where the booster gets its vacuum is changing. VW has been using vacuum pumps to power the brake booster on its diesel-powered vehicles for almost 40
The front brakes on the Titan use dual-piston floating calipers. Most noise and wear issues can be attributed to the guide pins not being serviced during a previous brake job. The abutment clips and slides can also cause noise and should be replaced during every brake job.
In 2004, the Nissan Frontier grew in size to match the Toyota Tacoma. The brakes resemble the previous platform, but with enhancements to reduce brake drag and improve the operation of the ABS and stability control systems.
These brake systems are known to make noise if the proper procedures are not followed and brake materials are not installed properly. The OE pads use a Non-Asbestos Organic (NAO) compound. The NAO material provides increased resistance to brake squeal. Some customers have complained about noisy brakes on these vehicles, so it is a good idea to explain the different pad compounds and varying degrees of noise resistance to let them decide which best suits their needs.
