Powerstop Z26 vs Stock SS Pads

How do the Z26 compare? Same stopping power?

A little less but more than fine for street use, if you are tracking the car stick with the OEM Brembo pads...

I replaced my stock SS pads at 400 miles with PowerStop Z26 due to the tremendous dust of the stock pads, I know have 3,600 miles and have been happy with the new pads...

No Brembo? I dropped my 1LE Brembo pads due to the dust and installed the Z26. Concur with 2SS Capt.

less dust = less stopping power more stopping power = more dust

Do the Powerstop Z26 Brake Pads fit the 2021 ZL1? They only list them up to the 2020 model.
Thanks Gary

I had the the Z26...less dust & less stopping power. Switched back to Brembos.

I ran the powerstop z26 pads and their slotted rotors for awhile. The front rotors warped within the first 1000 miles or so. I wouldn’t buy their rotors. The pads were always squeaky for the first braking event every drive. And they did result in less dust but also had less stopping power. I went back to the stock Brembos and stock rotors in the front and plan to swap out the rear pads and rotors eventually.

You'll know the difference if you've run those Brembo's for a period of time and then have to stand on those Z26's, you'll know right away but the other 99% of street driving they're fantastic (for me).
