For passenger vehicles, the front brakes are designed to provide quite a bit more braking than the rear brakes. Can someone provide a ball-park figure for an SUV? That is, what percentage of braking effort is provided by the front brakes? Is it 60% front, 40% rear? Maybe more like 70% front, 30% rear?
I doubt that any exact figure is readily available. I don’t think it would be much different then a car, however. In a steady stop they handle about 75% of the braking load. This increases as the weight transfers forward and ends up about 90% in a heavy stop. Since most vehicles have ABS today, the front brakes can readily do *all *the braking.
