    What is the difference between Z51 brake pads and base C6 pads - are they larger or just a different compound material?

    Any help or knowledge appreciated.

    thanks

    From what I understand, the Z51 brake calipers are only different in their location. The rotors are different (obviously.) The master cylinder is the same. The brake lines are the same. The anti-lock controller is the same. I believe the pad compound is different. I'm sure the "specialist" can chime in with the exact details you seek.
