  • Premium Hardware
  • Pin Bushing Kit
  • Hi-Temp Lubricant

Features

  • Precision machined using a Tru-Cast™ technology
  • Rotor run out is within 0.0015 and DTV tolerance specification is within 0.005
  • All Evolution rotors are mill balanced
  • Rounded slots keep a clear contact patch between the pad and the rotor by sweeping away water, gas and dust
  • Beveled and precision drill holes help keep rotors temperatures down during extreme braking performance
  • Pads, rotors and clips are designed in the precise size and shape of factory OEM parts for proper fit and operation
  • Carbon Fiber infused Evolution ceramic formula for superior braking power
  • The pad surfaces are thermal scorched for a fast break-in
  • Chamfered and slotted like the OE pad to ensure noise-free braking
  • Powder coated backing plate extends life by resisting rust and corrosion
  • Premium rubberized shims provide virtually noise-free-braking
  • Premium stainless steel hardware kit included for easy installation
  • Ceramic based lubricant specially formulated for Z23 Evolution Sport pads
  • Ceramic pad compounds wear slower and last longer than OEM equipment
  • Reduced heat buildup eliminates brake fading that occurs when brake fluid reaches boiling temperature
  • Includes rotors that are cross-drilled and slotted for more effective cooling under heavy use
  • Advanced brake pad compounds produce less dust than OEM factory brake pads
  • Brake pads and rotors offer eliminate squealing under the most extreme cold or hot temperatures
  • Bolt-On Ready: no modifications needed to your Vehicle
  • 3-year/36,000 mile manufacturer limited warranty on the rotors and pads purchased and installed together

Benefits:

  • Slots help to increase pad bite and improve air circulation
  • Drilled Holes and Slots create an escape route for debris, dust, gases, and water
  • Slots clean and de-glaze pad surface for optimum pad coefficient of friction
  • Drilled rotors improve the appearance of your wheels and provide reduced rotor weight

Factory original brake pads are made of metallic compounds featuring a large percentage of steel wool. As they grip steel rotors to create the friction that allows your vehicle to stop, abrasive wear is significant. Rotors wear down faster and the metal scraping from steel fibers can cause loud squealing that varies with temperature variations and weather conditions. When driven hard, metallic brake pads can generate excess heat buildup to cause the formation of grip-reducing hot spots on brake rotors. Many automakers that develop high performance models capable of high speeds will attempt to offset these disadvantages by reducing the metal content in brake pads, creating a softer material that grips better at fast speeds with less noise. However, these soft brake pads wear out faster and produce large amounts of visible black dust that soils aluminum wheels and ultimately becomes corrosive to finishes applied on them.

PowerStop offers a solution to the woes of underperforming factory brake parts with the 1-Click Brake Kit. It features brake pads made of ceramic compounds instead of traditional metallic ones, and comes complete with rotors that are cross-drilled and grooved for superior heat disbursement. Used in street performance where 200 mile-per-hour speeds quickly generate blistering heat, ceramic brake pads offer the natural ability to stay cool under the most severe conditions. When ceramic brake pads are combined with perforated rotors, heat buildup is reduced so extensively that brake fade rarely occurs due to fluid reaching boiling temperature. Ceramic brake pads are far quieter due to their higher resonant frequency undetectable by human ears, so squealing is not an issue. And finally, ceramic compounds last longer and produce finer, less obtrusive dust that does not stick to most wheel surfaces.

While the many advantages of ceramic brake pads and cross-drilled brake rotors typically come at a high cost, we offer you the superior all-around performance of these parts with value-priced kits from PowerStop, a leading high-volume manufacturer of brake components since the 1990s. You don't need a high-performance vehicle to enjoy the benefits these brake kits offer, and you might find your dealer charging a similar price while giving you less.

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 PowerStop’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, PowerStop is the only name you need to know.

Power Stop® KC120 - 1-Click Z23 Evolution Sport Drilled and Slotted Front Brake Kit with Calipers
First the calipers are of high quality construction and it is nicely painted but the bolt holes on the bracket are way too small. I took my old calipers off because they were done, thought this would be a nice upgrade and they are don't get me wrong. My disappointment was I wasn't able to use the entire setup I had to recycle the old unpainted bracket instead of using the painted one that came with the calipers. The drilled and slotted rotors are also nicely made. It could be me or just the supplied brake pads but there is a lot of brake noise when stopping not metal on metal like when your brake pads are done, just a low grumbling grinding noise not what you would expect from a brand new setup calipers rotors and brake pads.
