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.

Recently bought these set of brakes and really can’t complain. They stop on the dime and I feel a difference from the factory set. They do however have a screech noise when they sit for some time but after braking one good time it’s gone. Overall a great set for the price.Helpful (5)

Pads are insanely loud
Nice looking kit, rotors seem to be fine but the pads are insanely screaming at start up and under track conditions. Embarrassing. I asked AM to replace the pads, they said they wanted an email from my pro Speed Shop who which I asked to forward but no resolve. Pads are installed correctly.Helpful (4)

Nicely made, perfect fitment. Excellent stopping powerHelpful (3)
Boss? will this kit fit a 2013 Boss 302? If I recall, they have the same brembo brakes.
These will fit, but If I were you, I'd shoot higher. The rotors that come with the Brembo package are pretty great and if you're looking to upgrade them, you're gonna want more than this. Just get some decent pads and be done with it.
Are this front rotors 14 inch
The Power Stop Z26 front rotors measure 13.98 inches in diameter.
I have a 2012 GT with 582 RWHP, what are your recommended front and rear rotors with pads without spending thousands?
This Power Stop Z26 Street Warrior Brake Rotor and Pad Kit would be an excellent chose for a street/strip Brembo car. For open track or autocross, a more aggressive pad may be desired.
Will these fir my 2012 GT500?
The Power Stop Z26 Street Warrior Brake Rotor & Pad Kit will fit the GT500, however it is not recommended for use with the higher horsepower GT500 due to greater braking needs.
