Hauling heavy loads, or traveling hilly terrain will push your factory brakes to the limit, decreasing the performance of your brakes as well as stopping power. Get your brake confidence back with Power Stop Z36 truck and tow brake kit, and bring your rig to a stop where and when you want it.

Whenever you add weight to a vehicle while hauling or towing, or you add larger wheels, you change the operating conditions in which the factory brakes were designed to perform under originally. Those new conditions may be too great for your factory brakes' ability. Power Stop Z36 brakes can increase stopping power up to 20%, which should give you the needed confidence to take that 5th wheel up into the mountains for a camping trip.

Power Stop uses G3000 grade castings from trusted foundries when creating their rotors. The rotors feature beveled drill holes that help to reduce rotor temperature during extreme braking. Each rotor is silver zinc plated, and features slots that sweep away dust and gas for an optimal braking experience.

Power Stop brake pads are built using a carbon-fiber infused Evolution ceramic, and the pad surface has been thermal scorched for a quick break-in. Stainless steel shims help to maintain a quiet brake experience, and all brake pads feature a powder-coated backing plate that is designed to resist rust and corrosion.

All calipers have been completely rebuilt and tested to guarantee excellent performance. Finished in an electrostatic high-heat powder-coat that is designed to resist rust and corrosion. Calipers include new bleed screws, hardware and pins, and use high-temperature EPDM rubber for even greater durability.

So, what are you waiting for? Getting a Power Stop Z36 truck and tow brake kit on your ride is one of the smartest investments you can make. Know when and where your truck and trailer is going to stop is going to give you peace of mind, and isn't peace of mind what this is really all about?
