Vastly Improved Stopping Power And Reduced Fade Over Stock
The 1997-2003 F150 trucks are naturally heavy and need an upgraded braking system over stock, especially if you've put a good amount of miles on it or if you do any towing or hauling. To get your truck excellent braking performance, especially when towing, hauling, or anything else that you'd expect a tough truck to do, you'll need this awesome F150 brake kit from our friends over at Power Stop. This complete braking system comes with a full set of Power Stop's legendary rotors that are combined with their upgraded Z36 Extreme Truck and Towing Brake Pads that give you the stopping power and greatly reduced fade your F150 needs when getting thrown around off-road or while towing and hauling all of your heavy gear. The kit's braking components bolt on right in place of your truck's 5-lug stock brake rotors and brake pads, making it extremely easy to give your truck the braking performance it actually deserves.
Complete Set of Four Cross-Drilled and Slotted Rotors
Like all of Power Stops' impressive brake kits, the Truck and Tow Extreme package is centered around a complete set of four cross-drilled and slotted performance brake rotors. These rotors were carefully designed and constructed to deliver improved stopping power and less fade for most applications. Each of these rotors are given cross-drilled holes and CNC-machined. The rotors directional vanes efficiently dissipate heat generated by heavy braking and decrease operating temperatures by up to 180 over stock. The cooler temperatures lead directly to massively less fade than your factory brake rotors, giving you more consistent brake operation under heavy use. The specially-placed slots on the surface of each rotor clear away brake dust and other debris from the pad's contact area to give your truck more consistent bite and braking performance. The rotors come in a brilliant zinc dichromate finish for an awesome look and some extra corrosion resistance.
Carbon Fiber & Ceramic Pad Formulation For Reduced Fade
The pads included in this kit were made and designed especially for light truck and towing applications that require more stopping power and less fade than Power Stop's Z16 ceramic pads can provide. The Z36 Extreme Truck and Towing Pads feature a powerful carbon fiber infused ceramic friction compound that provides a huge bite, excellent stopping power, and extremely low levels of fade. The pads offer up to a 17% increase in friction coefficient over your F150's factory semi-metallic brake pads all while doing a more adequate job of dissipating the heat build-up that occurs during the heavy and sustained braking from towing and hauling applications.
Fitment: 1997-2003 Ford F-150 4WD.
Rotor Size: Factory rear 13.15" and front 12.13" replacements.
Power Stop Extreme Bedding Note: The break in procedure is critical to brake performance. The reason for a proper break in is to establish an even layer of friction material deposited on the rotors from the brake pads. It is very important that this initial layer of friction material is evenly distributed. Break in the pads as follows: 5 moderate to aggressive stops from 40 mph down to 10 mph in rapid succession without letting the brakes cool and do not come to a complete stop. Then do 5 moderate stops from 35 mph to 5 mph in rapid succession without letting the brakes cool. You should expect to smell some resin as the brakes get hot. After this is complete, drive around for as long as possible without excessively heating the brakes and without coming to a complete stop (Try for about 5 minutes at moderate speed). This is the cooling stage. It allows the heated resin in the brake pads to cool and cure. After the brakes have cooled to standard operating temperature, you may use the brakes normally.
