1999 GMC K1500 Brake Service & Repair

When To Get Your GMC K1500 Brakes Checked

It's a good idea to have your 1999 GMC  K1500 brakes serviced before a problem arises. You don't have to wait for something to go wrong. That's one reason we offer complimentary brake checks so that we can help you stay one step ahead of serious problems. You can request a free brake check as a standalone service or in addition to work you're already having done on your GMC, like a tire repair or an oil change. However, if routine car care has slipped your mind for quite some time, you might want to pay attention and watch for the following brake issues.

Symptoms of bad brakes include unusual sounds, vibration or pulsation in the pedal or steering wheel, a burning smell around the tires, a “lit” dashboard brake signal, or a gut feeling that something’s not right. You know your GMC K1500 like the back of your hand. A free brake check can help keep your system performing well. Vehicle manufacturers like GMC generally recommend that rear and front brakes are removed and serviced at least once every 12 months or 12,000 miles. That includes inspecting the parking brake. Brake service and/or repair should be performed as necessary. When in doubt, visit Firestone Complete Auto Care for a quick inspection. All of our 1,700+ locations offer free brake checks seven days a week. Our expert technicians are happy to examine your 1999 GMC K1500 brakes, brake pads, and other braking components. Proper brake maintenance is key to preventing problems in the first place.

Replacing Your GMC K1500’s Brake Pads

How often do 1999 GMC K1500 brake pads need to be replaced? It largely depends on where and how you drive. In general, brake pads last from 30,000 to 40,000 miles. If you drive mostly on the highway and tend to brake smoothly (as opposed to slamming on the brakes), your brake pads may last longer. If you often haul heavy loads or ride your brakes, your brake pads may wear out sooner. How often you need to replace your brake pads also depends on what kind you have on your K1500. Not all brake pads are created equally. Some materials last longer. Luckily, Firestone Complete Auto Care offers GMC K1500 brake pad replacements, coupons on brake services, and a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty on brake pads. We do brake checks and brake pad replacements every day, and for your K1500, we’ll only use parts that meet or surpass GMC’s standards.
