Drum brake systems slow/stop a vehicle using hydraulic pressure to generate friction. This is caused by a set of brake pads that press against a rotating drum-shaped brake. These types of brakes are found on the rear axels of low performance vehicles and large trucks.
As the most commonly used brake systems on vehicles today, disc brakes are typically located on the front wheels. They work by brake pads on either side of the wheel tightening when pressure is applied, resulting friction that slows the wheel down and to a complete stop.
