Received my new brake kit from R1 Concepts today.

 

I always felt that the brakes on my MKZ were a little anemic, they stop well but require a little more force then the brakes on my fusion, which in reality are a little bit smaller in size on a comparable car.

 

Plus I like the look of a drilled and slotted rotor.

 

R1 concepts was running a good sale price on the kit through Amazon so I bit the bullet and purchased the kit. First I purchased a kit for a G2 fusion as it was priced just a little over $105.00, a pretty smoking deal. But after doing some research I found out that the Lincoln has a larger brake rotor and pad, so I cancelled that order and found the correct package for $236.00 shipped, this included all four rotors and ceramic low dust performance brake pads.

 

This is the one upgrade that I wanted to do the most on this car, just couldn't find the right deal until last week. Stuff looks to be of pretty good quality, and not from China.

I might have to do some damage at the bank account :)

Brakes went on without any problems at all, I was some what shocked that the brakes I replaced were at about 90% pad remaining and they were Motorcraft pads and rotors in excellent condition.

 

Yet the stopping power of them was a little bit on the weak side. never really got on them real hard to heat them up to check for fade, but the new brakes stop like a champ.

 

Still waiting for them to bed in real good then I will make 4 or 5 hard brake runs on the highway to heat them up and bed them in properly.

t

They did dust up the rims pretty good initially, but now they have not left any residue on the wheels after I washed the car and put another 75 miles on it.

 

All I can say at this point is that their is a huge difference in what was on it before, and they are still not making full contact on the front rotors yet.

Nice upgrade.  If you think the brakes on the 2014 are a little weak, try stopping a 1st-gen MKZ from speed.
