There’s a shim difference between the Z23 and z26 But all I see for the Z36 is that’s it’s for towing and off roading.

Z36 is a slightly heavier duty pad. I put those on mine both front and rear about a month ago. There is a very, very slight bit more brake dust. I mean, it is miniscule. I did find that after having the Z23s for a year, the z36 brake pads have a bit more bite when braking and I do notice that it stops better.

Z23and Z26are same exact pads. There should be zero difference.

The shims are different between the 2.
26’s use all SS shim, no rubber, for better heat dissipation.

I know the difference between the Z23 and Z26 Is just a shim. It’s just another shim for the 36?

Probably! The material looked different between the Z26 and the Z36 when I compared them but that could mean anything. Could just be a batch color difference.

Either way, I have a slight bit more brake dust now than I did with the 26 pads.

I was looking around at the Stop Tech stuff and I found this...
TrackHawk rotors

Hopefully they are now coming out with some other options.

I believe it said the pad material was different for the z36 to deal with the load of towing.

I edited the post above to what I was trying to say. Little sleepy when I posted that.

Lol, it’s all good. I remember being surprised that the shim was the only difference between the 23 and 26. Seems like there would need to be something else different for the 36. You’re probably right and it’s a slight change in compound.

Hey everyone first post on here! So I got the z26 front and rears with the part numbers powerstop recommends for the Trackhawk, same part numbers I see posted here. Went to put them on and the shop that installed said that the rears are not the correct size. He said when he looked up Trackhawk pads that there are 2 options a 330mm and 350mm because it has different size caliper options for the rear???? He said ones I have is incorrect for the caliper option I have. Has anyone else experienced this or know of what he is talking about.

Part numbers are 6006 For front and 1053 for rears. I have zero clue what he’s talking about. I’m not aware of an option for brake rotor size.

Those are both the ones I got. The fronts went on no issue. I’m wondering if the rears are somehow the wrong box, label, or part for what I actually received. Or the shop is just incompetent. I was also unaware of any options for brake size on the rears.
