Powerstop Brake Rotor & Pads

Has anyone tried these? I'm thinking about picking up this kit since it's on sale this month and seems like a good deal. I've got some Brembo calipers just haven't got the rotors yet. Also I plan to paint them first before putting them on. A.M? Has this kit for regular v6/GT brakes also.

Any issues with them? Extra noise?

Only 21k miles and my rear brakes are nearly metal to metal. I'm looking into these as well. Does anyone have any input on these? How are they vs stock? Are they noisy? Do they wear quickly? How do they hold up to brake fade? Any input is appreciated I'm ready to order just want to make sure this isn't a downgrade over the stock Brembos that came with the car.

Ok versus stock, the pedal is significantly firmer. They bite better too. Not as good as the hawk brand pads, but better over stock, low dust. I have made one hard brake with them and it almost bruised my collar bone. Granted it was at 45-25, it was far better than stock. However the bad, the bite is good but it has this weird feeling where the bite goes to steady braking. It's nothing significant and can be easy to get used to. My advice is go with the slotted and drilled rotors over the regular. It's $50 more and for no more than a track day here and there, they are fine.

I recommend them because they are originally called brake motive, and supposedly use brembro materials, they are now under the name Powerslot which btw, is what AM sells. But they have a mark up on them. I got mine through autopartwarhouse or auto anything. Can't remember.

Powerstop Brake Rotor & Pads

Hey Whitelightning, did you mean Powerstop or Powerslot? We were looking at the Powerstop kits that are pretty cheap that come with front & rear rotors & pads for $320-$360 depending on which brakes you have. If your talking about Powerslot then I know what you mean as I had them on my '04 GT and they greatly improved braking also.

They have great reviews on A.M. and autoanything. I suggest you get them from autoanything though as they gave them the cheapest for those of us with Brembos.

Thanks. I think I am going to get them I was mainly looking to make sure nobody has had horror stories with them. I will probably order from American muscle though as they are only $8 more and I have had good experiences with them in the past. I appreciate the response.

I was looking at the package with the drilled and slotted rotors with pads. $399 at American Muscle. And around $392 at auto anything. I guess I thought that's everyone was taking about in this thread. Had anyone used these specifically?

Yes that's the one that I am talking about. Like I was saying it has excellent reviews and I will be ordering it as soon as I'm done painting my calipers. Whitelightning has the same kit just with regular rotors but from the same company.

Exactly my logic. Same company, except they are $300 for slotted and drilled. You save money with autopartwarhouse

I have the kit sitting in my front room. I also ordered new steel brake lines also. Just waiting till I decide on what rims and tires to order. I will have them installed at the same time.
