Part Numbers for LS V6 1LE Brake Pads vs. Base SS

I was looking to buy some of the Z26 pads that seem to be a decent go-to pad for less dust and similar performance.

Problem is I have the 2017 Camaro LT V6 with the 1LE pack. Meaning it shares suspension components with the Base 1SS, which suposedly includes the Base 1SS's 13.6" 4 Piston Brakes.

I thought this meant I could go and grab the same part numbers for the Z26's as on a Base SS, but according to Powerstop the rear brake pads differ from the V6 1LE to the SS. I don't see why they would as that means that the rear brakes are completely different from the Base 1SS model. Yet I was told by customer service they can only supply the front brake pads for my car, which means they think the rear brakes are not only different from the 1SS, but also the 1LS/1LT/2LT variants, which they all have part numbers for. So the V6 1LE rears brakes are completely unique to that model? That just doesn't make any sense to me, why wouldn't GM take the rear brakes from either the Base 1SS or other models?

My real question is has anyone bought from PowerStop for their V6 1LE or Non-SS edition with the 4 piston brake kit? And if so, what part numbers did you end purchasing/using? Did they seem to fit perfectly fine for the rear?


***Updated for Real Part Numbers***:
Part #'s for the V6 1LE:
F: Z26-1474A (Sound Dampeners) or Z26-1001 (No Sound Dampeners)
R: Z23-1914 (No Z26's available for single piston)

Part #'s for the Base SS:
F: Z26-1474A (Sound Dampeners) or Z26-1001 (No Sound Dampeners)
R: Z26-1718

Our v6 1LE cars have the Brembos in the front only, not rear...

So then the rear brakes would just be the same as a regular LT or other Non-SS model right? Why would PowerStop be saying they're different then?

they might not have done the updating on their site, or had no cars or way to verify fitment.

I have the brembo 4 pistons in the front and the single pistons in the rear. just have to by for the LT under most charts and drop downs when looking, and then get the SS fronts.

good side is they usually cost lower for a smaller pad...just sayin..

FYI for anyone with a V6 1LE:


Front - Z26-1001 (Z26-1474/A's have sound dampeners that will stick out of the back of the caliper, still would work if you don't care about them sticking out)

Rears - Z23-1914 (No Z26's available for single piston)

The V6 1LE actually doesn't have "SS" brakes. Its the same 4 piston Brembos available on any LS/LT. But yes the front pads are the same. I've had the Z26 1474s on my car for about 4 months, weights/dampeners don't look that bad.

Yeah weird thing is everything I read just said the V6 1LE just parts binned the SS's brakes. Unfortunately, I didn't figure that out that wasn't the case until I went to replace my own with the Z26-1474A's (Thank God for Amazon's easy returns).

But do you think that the weight/sound dampeners actually do anything? I couldn't find anything online about their actual function versus having a brake pad without them

I heard people were complaining about brake noise on 5th gen SSs so GM added the dampeners.

Wonder why the LS 1LE's don't have them from the factory then. Not that I had any issues with brake noise without them...just if you're already putting those pads in the SS, why not move them over to the V6? Maybe the weight difference or something really negates the need for them?
