Anyone using Power Stop brake kits?

All,

There is a good sale at Amazon for the Power Stop brake kits. Curious if anyone has had experience with them.

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01CFL688O/?tag=powsto07-20

Thanks!!

Bill

I have the Z36 pads/rotors like this: https://www.amazon.com/Power-K2798-3...omotive&sr=1-4
But from @Quadratec for around the same price. Rather buy from a forum vendor...

I trailer and live in the hills ---- these brakes are fantastic. No more brake fade from heat.
Very very happy with them.

Some say that the slots will pick up more trail debris but that hasn't happened so far. I've picked up stones in the past with regular rotors so I guess it's just a matter of time.
But I street the Jeep more than trail. And I gots to stop.

Back in the day we used to call those "Pre-cracked" I'm sure the technology has improved.

Going is good. Stopping is better.

Z36 also. At least, the rear set. I bought front and rear, but my front didn't need changing. The rear seem to be doing great, but it's hard to tell since my front set is still OEM.

Quiet, clean, cool ----- I didn't realize how loud the OE brakes were until I installed these. No dust on the wheels too.

Don't cut corners on safety features.. Discount or not, it will cost you in the long run.

Yep, the Z36, drilled, slotted, low dust. Look cool. They have not failed to stop me yet. If you really get in the mud a lot you might want to pass on the drilled and slotted rotors. The mud is not bad at the mall.

Great brakes, I run them on all my cars. I have the OEM replacements on the DD and wife's DD. I do have the upgraded ones on my JKU cause I tow and it's a heavy pig. Works great, even in the mud.
