If you are the proud owner of a Ford F-100, it is clear that you not only have a sense of history, but also a desire to hit the trail from time to time. Though the classic pickup has been out of production for over 30 years, the F-100 still maintains a large fan base to this day, and the truck itself is still a fully-capable off-roading machine.
With its rugged body & sheet metal, combined with its unique engine and exhaust system, the F-100 has always been a terrific off-roading vehicle. While unpredictability goes hand-in-hand with off-roading excursions, there are certain things in which you are not looking for any surprises on while you are blazing the terrain. When it comes to remaining safe on the trail, it is imperative to ensure that your F-100 brakes are always up to par.
As durable as your pickup is, eventually, you are going to need to bring your truck to a stop, and that is where the F100 brakes earn their keep! The Ford F-100 braking system is made up of a complex collection of parts, and features components located throughout the interior, the engine compartment, and the wheel well. All of these various parts play important roles in engaging your F-100 brakes, which will in turn, either slow down, or bring your classic truck to a complete stop.
Because you tap on them every time that your truck is in motion, the F-100 brakes are one of your vehicle’s most overworked components. Whether you are an active off-roader, or if you mainly stick to the main highways, your Ford F-100 brakes will undergo a fair amount of wear and tear over the years. Additionally, because the truck is so old, chances are that your original F-100 brake parts are at or are near the end of the road.
Driving around with outdated or impaired F100 brakes is not only dangerous for you and your passengers, but for the other drivers as well. If you are hearing screeching noises or are experiencing vibration or pulsation on your pedal or steering wheel, it is probably time to replace several of your original F-100 brake components.
