$90 plus shipping - never mounted, stuck with the stockers until sold the car.

Not sure the diff between the two. I would assume the Challenger was the same (same Dodge PN for the brakes right?). Everything that comes with the pads in the box is in there.

EDIT: I knew the differences when I decided which pad to go with, but that was years ago and I don't recall the details at the moment.

Z23 vs Z26: which one is right for you? You’ll need to know what kind of performance you want to get out of your brake pads and your driving style.

The Z23 pads are a Carbon-Fiber Ceramic formula that offer great dust-free braking performance. This kit is designed for increased braking power for a daily-driven car, truck, SUV or crossover.

The Z26, on the other hand is designed for extreme street braking performance on high performance vehicles. This kit includes premium stainless steel shims to provide better heat dissipation, as well as the Carbon Fiber Ceramic formula found on the Z23 brake pads.

Same pad material, so I would assume no difference in dust between the 2...seems like just the shims are different?

^ like McLovin says the ONLY difference is the skinny little simple nearly worthless backing plate the Z26 comes with. That is the one I use. They never wear out. But I just replaced my rears on the DD Tahoe. 185,000 miles and that was the OEM set. Yep, I don’t use brakes on the street:eek:

That always struck me as nothing more than marketing.

You have a pad that is dust free and great for daily drivers. But then you take the exact same pad and material and add a SS shim to it, and it now suddenly becomes designed for extreme street braking performance?

Allows you to have a single product targeted to two audiences.

Don't get me wrong - great pads. I use the Z23s myself.

That’s weird as my Z23’s came with the steel shims. Sorry for the thread drift.

I looked at my brand new rear Brembo’s this weekend (removed at 15 miles). Looks like they came with a backing plate also.
