Don’t make yourself a nervous wreck; switch to Power Stop’s Z36 Truck and Tow pads. Their μ (coefficient of friction) is 17% higher than OEM pads, and that means better bite, especially on heavier vehicles. Sure, it’s easy to compound a brake pad that has more grip (like Power Stop Z36 pads), but it’s usually at the expense of pad life, dust on your front wheels, and excess heat buildup that turns into brake fade. With long pad life and improved performance, these premium pads will give you better brake feel, cleaner front wheels and quiet stops.
Power Stop also uses the best technology for anti-squeal shims: constrained steel. A sandwich of two layers of steel with a viscoelastic layer between them prevents acoustic coupling between the pad and caliper piston, eliminating brake squeal. Other manufacturers attempt to use a single layer of steel or a layer of Teflon to achieve this. Power Stop’s solution, while pricier, is far more effective.
Founded in 1997 in Southern California, PowerStop began with the goal of bringing the benefits of superior brake components at a reasonable cost to street performance and backyard performance enthusiasts everywhere. Company management and engineers believed then, as they do today, that better brakes make driving more enjoyable and safer for any vehicle, terrain, and driving style – not just street performance. They developed a philosophy that while brake components cannot be superior without the most advanced materials, they also cannot perform in a superior fashion without matching the exact tolerances of each and every individual vehicle they are created for. Relentless development and testing led to brake pads, rotors, drum shoes, and other related components that delivered uncompromising fit and operation, and Power Stop’s customer base grew exponentially from positive word of mouth. The company still has its original passion for creating the best products at the best possible prices, so when it comes to replacement brake components for your vehicle, Power Stop is the only name you need to know.
