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.

More Bite For Your Buck!
When I installed this Cobra brake kit on my 1986 Mustang, I could immediately tell that the stopping power was drastically improved over the stock Cobra pads and rotors, and no heavy brake dust residue.Helpful (2)

Came out looking great.
Rotors and pads showed up in good condition. The only downside was having to file down the ears on the brake pads to make them fit on the caliper on a 97 Cobra. Didn't take more than 15 minutes to do that so I'm content with the product.Helpful (0)

Good deal for replacements
They look great and are an improvement over stock rotors. Still building the car so I haven’t tried them out yet. I do however wish the front pads were bigger as there’s a lot of rotor surface area that the pads don’t come in contact with.Helpful (0)

Had oem rotors and had them resurfaced once. This kit is very well priced, great stopping power! Look good as well! Just dont forget the rear calipers cant be done with regular c clamp.. if you dont have a brake tool rent one from auto zone.Helpful (1)

Just finished installing the rear brakes only. Took me 4.5hrs. I’m fairly mechanical and figured I’d be done in under 2hrs. Pads fits like garbage. Have to take it all apart tomorrow and grind the tabs down on the pads cause they don’t move freely and after reading more they should. Huge pain since I’m in Canada and sending stuff back isn’t even worth it. Not impressed with this kitHelpful (7)

Great brakes for the price
They are great brakes for the price. I will say that they don’t bit as hard as I would like when they are cold, but after they get warmed up, they definitely grab hardHelpful (2)

I have a 96 mustang with a 351 motor which puts out about 600 hp. to the rear wheels, I run auto cross, and also some high speed road courses I am currently running powerstop drilled and slotted rotors and pads,(factory) I want to up grade to bigger rotors and calipers, what are my options ?
Will these fit a 2003 Roush 380R Mustang?
Will this product work with brembo front brake calipers on a 2004 Cobra?
The Power Stop Z26 Street Warrior Brake Rotor & Pad Kit will work with the 2003-2004 Cobra brake calipers.
what is the diameter Hello I was wondering what is the diameter of the front and rear rotor
The fronts are 13 inches and the rear are 11.65 inches. You must have the Cobra/Mach 1/Bullitt brackets (rear) and calipers (all). These will not fit a stock GT or V6 SN95.
