powerstop z23 kit

only have been riding on them for a day and the car stops soon much easier than stock. No spirited driving done yet.

I put these on a Lexus, big difference, just got the kit below on Amazon $432, great price. Going with a blue caliper paint when I install.

Supermerkin, how do you like them?

Same on my Lexus GS, but I don't recall noticing the hot improvement, is it significant?

I can definitely tell a difference when they're warm versus when I'm just starting to drive

Put mine in last weekend, I don't notice a significant difference cold to hot, I don't drive hard until engine temp is normal. Did you have an issue in the break-in procedure? They feel smooth and strong, great upgrade value.

On the back of the caliper there at two torq screws that separate the electric brake motor. Once separated there is a disc with a hex in the center, hand screw that in until it stops, then retract the piston, and reassemble. There is a write up on a thread here somewhere. Real simple 5-10 minutes. The hardest thing was the front caliper springs, there must be a trick for them.
