Brake Pads & Rotor Replacement Option for Edge Sport (2016-2018)

Recommended Posts

If you feel you don't need the exotic calibers & rotors & pads that Xtra & Root have on their Sports but feel your braking system has the caliber pressure/power you require but with better pads & rotors it would be all you need then try the Power Stop Pad & Rotor kit #K7231

 

Comes with pads, rotors and all replacement hardware for all four wheels.

 

I purchased mine from www.rockauto.com for under $300. after the Rock Auto discount & PowerStop rebate... :thumbsup:

Off topic, but I was rummaging around the rock auto website and saw I could order the HID lights from the Titanium trim. I would imagine these could be a direct swap on the sport, but I am looking for a second opinion. Thoughts?

I believe a fellow Gen 2 owner has the Power Stop kit on his vehicle as well. Likes them so far.

 

As far as the HID lights, you would have to swap the headlamp assemblies. I don't know if they still separate fuses for each HID headlamp, vs a single fuse for the halogens, but that is another (minor consideration).

 

Back to brakes!!! Wish the BBKs were more affordable, but there is always Rotora if you namedrop Xtra in the right ear, or so I hear :)

I installed the power stop rotors and carbon ceramic pads, I love them.

Not trying to harsh you but we must have some topic discipline in order for members to be able to find what you have to offer.

 

So please going forward put your post either under a relative topic or start a new topic string yourself.

 

Thank you for your support...;-)

My bad my bad. It's just every time I log into this forum I learn about new websites and modifications and it's all so exciting! But back to brakes. I like the price of the package, but how much of an improvement are these over OEM?

Ive got the power stop Z23 (at least I thinks what it is) kit. Very pleased!

I ordered the same Z23 kit for the Continental a few weeks ago, the problem is I'm probably the only person in the country to do that. On back order until the last week of December, at least...

Not sure how to answer that however, being a road racer and not a dragger I can only relate to high speed braking and I noted no fade and strong consistant braking. Edited by snmjim

Are the rotors coated like OEM so they do not rust around the non pad area?


Also how did you get the Edge off all 4's and on jack stands?

Yes, they're coated and I use a shop lift.

Ive had the same kit sitting for 2 months in the garage, no damn time to install. Plan to do brake fluid, ss lines, rear swaybar, F/R links, caliper covers, and winter tire swap all at the same time. 

Any tips for the install? Any issues with the install?  Did your pads have any chipping on them? I ordered 2 sets of front and rear pads and the fronts both have chipping. (ordered everything from rock auto) 
Thanks!

Got pics to share of the chipped front pads?  I have to date not had any issues with them either on the Edge or the Fusion.

Beezz,

All looks like the makings of a thorough project.

Tips/Reco/Comments:

- The caliper rubber grommets for the slide pins that come with the Power Stop pad kit should be greased inside & out with a non rubber deteriorating grease to ease install & movement, it can be a battle without it unless there's a special tool or technique I lack,

- Stabilizer bar link locks to prevent horizontal shifting of the bar, especially since the tolerance from bar end to electronic brake servo will be close.

- H&R Springs from Tirerack

No, I didn't have any chipping on my pads however, I can't comment in detail without some Pics.
