Disc brakes are two types of disc brakes.
The «opposed piston type disc brake» has pistons on both sides of the disc rotor, while the «floating type disc brake» has a piston on only one side. Floating caliper type disc brakes are also called sliding pin type disc brakes
As a general rule of thumb, your car will typically need brake replacement every 30,000 miles.brake

Your brake system is made up of several components, all of which need to be maintained and repaired. These parts work together to safely stop your vehicle when you press down on the brake pedal. While there is some variation across different vehicle models, most brake systems include:
Brake lines: Most cars have a hydraulic system that uses fluid to transfer the pressure applied to the pedal to the brake. Brake fluid is stored in the master cylinder and moves to the calipers through the brake lines.
Brake pads: Made from steel with friction material attached to the surface, the brake pads press against the rotor and create the friction necessary to slow and stop the car.
Rotors: The rotor, which is bowl-shaped and attached to the wheel, takes kinetic energy and turns it into thermal energy, which is then absorbed and dissipated.
Calipers: Calipers squeeze the brake pads against the rotors to slow and stop the car.
All of these parts can wear down over time, making them less effective — and making it more difficult for your car to brake safely. Some of the signs that you need brake repair include:
Vibration: If you drive at 30 mph and feel vibration when applying your brakes, your rotors may be warped. Your brakes need to be inspected at the first sign of vibrations or pulsing sensations while braking.
Pulling: If your vehicle pulls to one side when you brake, the pads have worn unevenly.
Grinding: If you can hear grinding, the pads have completely worn away, and the rotors are damaging each other.
Squealing: An indicator called a shim is part of your brakes and creates a squealing sound when the pads get too thin.
Fading: If your brakes feel spongy or like they’re sinking when you apply them, there’s an issue with your brake fluid.
Any of these symptoms can mean it’s time to take your vehicle in for inspection. Brake problems are a major safety issue, so it’s important to get these issues checked right away.
