I have a 2019 Dodge challenger scat pack - Anyone know where to get front and rear ceramic brakes. I see where I can buy fronts, but rears seem to be an issue? Anyone have any suggestions? The factory ones make a ton of dust and I'm tired of constantly cleaning my rims!!!!!!!

Following this for same question. I know from previous threads I remember people referring to a set of semi-metallic pads that are easier on the rotors (as well as less dust). I love the stopping power, but i've got the two-piece rotors that are expensive beyond reason, so I'd like to preserve them for as long as possible.

I have the Z26 Carbon-Fiber Ceramic pads from PowerStop. Highly recommend them for daily driving. Keeps my wheels clean and works great in the rain.

  • Z26 Carbon-Fiber Ceramic formula offers extreme braking performance that is designed for muscle cars and performance vehicles.
  • Dust-free braking performance.
  • Premium stainless steel shims provide better heat dissipation & virtually noise-free braking.

I’ve experimented with 7 different pad manufactures, including the Z26, and highly recommend Stop Tech “street” pads #308.14051. All the OE Brembo pad bite without the dust. Tried a full ceramic and they quickly wore out, made noise and didn’t perform all that well. Not to mention really expensive.

I had the Powerstop Z23 brake kit, drilled/slotted rotors and ceramic pads on my "10 R/T. Much improved braking and very very little dust.

Power stop pads are the way to go! I have had them on my SRT and loved them.

We did a huge amount of research on this subject a couple years ago. Many on this forum ended up with the Z23's or the Z26's from Powerstop. I'm the guy that contacted one of the engineers at Powerstop and got it right from him that the pads have identical composition. I told him I needed some technical info about the 6 piston Brembo's on my '15 SRT392. The difference is the backing plate. The Z23's are rated for typical street drivers like me that tend to go easy on their brakes. He was the one that confirmed for all of us that the factory semi-metallic pads are hard on rotors, and that we could expect longer rotor life using ceramic pads like the Z23's or Z26's. He also said they will NOT improve braking performance over the factory pads: they are not designed to do so. My take on it was that I don't want or need the incredible brakes on my car. What I need is less brake dust and less rotor wear.

Yes the pads will fit your 17 scatpack. They are available for every challenger configuration. Read up on the links I provided above.
