Coming from someone who actually has this this kit. I will tell you it is night and day over stock. I've never had a brake system stop with that much force. It's a solid pedal every time I use the brakes. No brake fade.

I played around with them stopping at various speeds, but i didn't see the full benefit till it came time to use them with out thinking. I had a deer walk out in front of me, I stood on the pedal it stopped with so much force it tried to pull me to the floor I had to scoot back in the seat afterward. I will recommend these to anyone, I've had them a month now with no issues.

If you do a proper break in, you will get the performance out of them that you would expect. If you get the powerstop 1 click kit it comes with powerstops ceramic pads.
