Semi truck is perhaps the most critical type of vehicle when it comes to the importance of brakes. When 80,000 pounds of truck and trailer are barreling down the freeway, you need to know that they will be able to stop efficiently and quickly when needed. Brake failure is a common cause for accidents involving tractor trailers, and these accidents are an excellent cause for a lawsuit. If you wish to avoid a lawsuit for your fleet, pay close attention for your brakes. Set up a routine plan for having a professional service the brakes on your semi trucks. While the distance a truck can travel between brake service is going to vary depending on the driving habits of the driver, it's best to have the brakes inspected and maintained every time you have the truck's oil changed. This will keep the driver, the truck and everyone on the road with them as safe as possible.
The drums should also be replaced when the shoes are replaced, because they can wear down and can also develop heat cracks. Replace the brake drum if any of the following conditions are found: heat checks, one or more that extend completely across the brake surface. Heat check cracks that are 0.06 inches wide and/or 0.12 inches deep or greater.
To keep your tires in good condition and longer life you have to inspect your shocks each time when you changing the oil. We recommend to change shocks each time when you changing tires.
