FatherLarry, I'm going to move this over to the C5 section so those guys see it. :)

Brake pads

On the 2002 Z06, are the front and rear brake pads the same compound? Or, is just the front upgraded and the rear the same as coupe and vert?

According to the Spring 2003 issue of Corvette Quarterly (page 46) the rear brake pads on the Z06 are the same as the rear pads on the coupe and convertible.

They caution that the Z06 front pads are more "track ready" and may generate more noise and wear faster in the lower temperatures encountered in street driving.

FWIW, I have not noticed any noise from my Z06 brakes and pad wear seems just as minimal as it was on my 6-speed C4s.
