Hey, Stephanie with AmericanMuscle.com taking a closer look at Power Stop's Z26 Street Warrior cross-drilled front and rear brake rotor and ceramic pad kit, available for '94 to 2014 Mustangs. Power Stop is a company that produces quality braking components with the goal of giving you increased stopping power for an affordable price. We've had some experience with Power Stop's brake package for the newer Mustang on our 2014 project car build, Project Coyote. And you can check out that build by clicking on the project cars and video tab on the home page of the website. While you're there, check out some of our other project car builds along with exciting Mustang news, and of course, more in depth product overviews.The Power Stop Z26 Street Warrior kit, as I mentioned earlier, is available for just about all '94 to 2014 Mustangs including the '11 to '14 Brembo equipped cars. Now this is a really cost effective kit, especially when you consider what you're getting. The Power Stop includes the front and rear cross drilled and slotted rotors, in addition to the brand new carbon fiber infused ceramic pads for all four corners. American Muscle also sells all of these same components individually as well, so you can pick up what you need without purchasing the entire kit if need be.Now that you guys know what's included, let's break down the components a little further starting with the rotors. Now as I mentioned earlier, you're getting two front and two rear rotors with the kit. And as you can see, they're both drilled and slotted. Having a drilled and slotted rotor like this will be beneficial because it will reduce the heat in your brakes that may lead to excessive brake feed after a few repetitive hard stops. The rotors have bevel drill holes to keep temps down during use, as well as rounded slots to help maintain a clear contact patch for the pad and the rotor. The rotors have also been silver zinc plated to help prevent any possible rust or corrosion, ensuring that the rotors will look good for years to come.And speaking of looking good, performance benefits aside, a set of drill and slotted rotors look killer. And they do add a more aggressive look to your Mustang, especially if you have a wheel design like the MMD 551C. Or a set of AMRs. Or Bullitts, for instance, where you can really see a lot of the rotor. In fact, you can head back to the site if you're not there already, to check out some customer- submitted reviews and images of this Power Stop kit installed on a wide variety of Mustangs. As for the pads, the Power Stop kit utilizes a carbon fiber infused ceramic pad, which will help you in a couple of different ways. For starters, the ceramic compound will increase the overall stopping power by allowing the pads to handle higher brake temperatures with less heat fade. The ceramic compound in this pad will also be quiet and produce less dust when compared to other materials, keeping your wheels cleaner in the process. As for the install, you'll need some basic hand tools along with a jack or a lift. Since you're tackling all four corners, it might take you a few hours, about three or so, to get the job done. The kit also includes all the necessary hardware making the install that much easier. One very important step. Whenever installing a new set of rotors and pads, it is very important to follow the manufacturer's bleeding process and braking procedures just to get the optimal performance and wear from your new setup. If you're looking for brakes that will keep up with your performance base driving at a very affordable price, then be sure to check out a Power Stop Z26 brake rotor and ceramic pad kit for your '94 to 2014 Mustang, available here at AmericanMuscle.com.

They look great and stop great. The only problem I ran into was the screw type rear piston. It wasn’t like that on my 07 GT. So after destroying my C-clamp I realized it was a screw type and ended up using vise grips in a pinch. ( I do not recommend this method, rent the appropriate tool) I now have a new found respect for my mechanic friends and a further understanding of why they curse so much lol. All in all a great product at a great price. Do the research ahead of the install, get the appropriate tools, and enjoy.Helpful (0)

No longer loosing breaks on the track
I used to lose my braking power at the end of a lap on the track I go to, but after installing this kit I no longer have this problem! The break-in procedure for the pads was intuitive and easy to follow, so that was also a nice touch!Helpful (0)

Much better than stock, but could be better. They look really nice. i don't like how small the rear rotors look thru the wheels. They broke-in kinda weird, not as smooth as i imagined, but they are fine now.Helpful (0)

Power Stop Z26 Brake Kit
I purchased these for my 2011 GT. Fitment went on like OEM. The brake performance is comparable if not better to what the OEM brakes felt like. They look nice inside the wheel, couldn't ask for much more. The pads feel good too. It's too early to tell wear on them but so far so good.Helpful (2)

Solid brake kit.
I just had the installed yesterday, which is why I only gave it 4/5 stars. So far they brake well. Had a shop install because I could not find the time to do it. Was about 120 per axle. Overall satisfied with what performance I have seen, and they definitely look better than the stock rotors.Helpful (0)

Upgrade for the ugly stock rotors
Install was straight forward, I installed the Russel SS lines as well, I will say I didn’t notice any difference in braking.. but I do know they’re there. Make sure you have your caliper CUBE tool or some clamps to squeeze the rear pistons back in.. I forgot and my car was on the lift all night because I had neither.Helpful (0)
What size rotors are these? What size are the front and rear rotors when compared to stock?
They are the same exact size as the stock one in size and width.
What is the difference between the Z26 and the Z23 brake rotor and pad kits for the 2014 Standard GT?
The Z26 pads feature a carbon fiber infused ceramic compound where as the Z23 pads are a premium carbon-ceramic compound. Both offer a 20% stopping power increase over stock. Basically if you're looking for an OEM replacement kit with better performance, I would recommend the Z23 kit. If your vehicle is supercharged (or has a turbo kit), I'd recommend the Z26 kit as that one is designed for high horsepower vehicles.
will they rust over time ?
The Power Stop Z26 Street Warrior Brake Rotor & Pad Kit uses silver zinc plated rotors, which will resist corrosion, but due to the heat applied to your rotors, will eventually be able to form some rust.
what is the difference in the z23 and the z26 brake package, on 11 gt
The Z23 brakes will be more close to the stock set up as far as stopping power. Where as the Z26 brakes will be a upgraded brake to supply more stopping power.
I bought this z26 rotors and pads for the front only and I have a v6 will they fit bc I don't want to take all of this apart and they don't fit. Thank you
This Power Stop Z26 Street Warrior Brake Rotor & Pad Kit is for the GT. The kit you need for your V6 can be found here http://www.americanmuscle.com/powerstop-streetwarrior-brake-kit-1114v6.html We do not carry a front only version.
These do not have any wheel size restrictions.
The rear rotors are 11.810 in. in diameter.
If you are experiencing any issues with a part from our website, please contact us at 1 (888) 318-4347 and one of our representatives will be happy to assist you.
The 2014 GT/CS was not equipped with Brembo brakes, so this kit would fit.
The Power Stop Z26 Street Warrior Brake Rotor & Pad Kit will be silver zinc plated to resist rust.
The Power Stop Z26 Street Warrior Brake Rotor & Pad Kit would have a similar weight to OEM rotors.
When installing the Power Stop Z26 Street Warrior Brake Rotor & Pad Kit it is a good idea to utilize CRC Brakleen or similar to ensure that there is nothing on the rotor that can contaminate the pad. This could be oil from shipping, or grease from installation. Ensuring this is clean will help provide consistent braking and long life of the pads.
The Power Stop Z26 Street Warrior Brake Rotor and Pad Kit is designed to replace non Brembo equipped Mustang brakes. Unfortunately we do not have measurements for the caliper brackets, but if the bracket is smaller, this may be one that was designed for the V6 which came with smaller brakes.
Some components from Power Stop are manufacturer in the US while other components are manufactured overseas.
The Performance Package V6 comes with upgraded brake pads. It does not come with GT rotors. You will need a pad and rotor kit that is designed for a V6 Mustang.
