Great Stopping Power. Shorten your SN95's stopping distance dramatically with a set of Hawk Performance Ceramic pads. Using a ceramic compound like that used on many high-end sports cars, these pads brake much better than your Mustang's stock pads, plus they feel and sound better too. Make your 'Stang feel like a real sportscar with a set of Hawk Ceramic pads.

Daily Driver Friendly. Hawk Performance Ceramic pads bite strongly but smoothly right out of your driveway without being warmed up, making this a great choice for your daily driver. Plus, these pads use a unique linear friction profile which allows your ABS braking system to work more effectively.

Minimal Dust & Noise. The Hawk Ceramic pads use a compound that allows your brakes to work almost silently and dust far less than stock pads or even other high performance pads. They're a great choice for drivers who want to be able to show n'go with a minimum of prep time.

Application. This set of Hawk Performance Ceramic pads is sold as pair for the Mustang's front brakes only. They are designed for the 1994 to 1998 Mustang V6 or GT only. Will not fit the SVT Cobra. Set includes driver-side and passenger-side brake pads.

    Review Update

    March 28, 2012

    I need to update my previous review on these brake pads. Recently my brake pads came to life and are now giving me a significant improvement in braking performance! When I wrote my last review in Jan-28-12, I had put roughly 1000 miles on the brake pads with both street and freeway driving. I mentioned it was a good product but that the brake pads were more of a factory replacement than an upgrade. Well recently, after about another 1000 miles, these brake pads have significantly improved their performance! My stopping distance has been drastically reduced and the whole car feels more responsive when I brake. Just the other day I had to slam on my brakes on the freeway and the car came to a screeching halt in a very short distance. The tires where even smoking after the stop! Something my car has never done before! I am significantly more satisfied with the purchase and will probably purchase these Hawk products for the rest of my life. I can confidently say that these brake pads are in fact an upgrade after all. Perhaps mine just needed a little more breaking in? Either way, the car now feels like it has some high-end braking system equipped! I am also glad to report that these pads have not squeaked even once and they do not really make any dust.

    Hawk Performance Brake Pads

    January 28, 2012

    I have had these pads for a little over a month now and have put at least 1000 miles on them w/ hard stops both on the streets and on the freeway. The fit was perfect in the stock V6 calipers of my 1998 mustang and the installation was easy with basic hand tools. They are aesthetically pleasing since the back panel is painted in glossy black. In the time that I have had them, they have not squeaked what so ever. I do have to admit that stopping power did not increase when I switched from the stock pads to these. My mustang cannot stop any faster than is used to. They are marketed as an upgrade, but really they are more like a replacement. That said, I still think these are great pads, albeit a little expensive. I did notice that the hotter they get, the better they stop. If you get these pads, make sure to break them in with several hard stops from 60 mph in a safe environment before using them on the street. Additionally, drive very defensively during your first week. Try to keep a good bit of distance between you and the car in front of you. I almost wrecked my Mustang on the freeway during rush hour because my pads weren't full broken in yet. Its very scary when you are pressing the brake as hard as you can and the car isn't stopping fast enough!

    I bought these pads for the front and back along with Powerslot rotors. I could definitely notice breaking performance improved. Breaks have been silent as well.

    Hawk Performance Brake pads

    July 27, 2012

    These Pads are unbelievable. I notice a big difference as I brake. It's diffenately worth getting the hawk performance rotor as well. The reason why I needed a mechanic to do this for me was because my brake calipers were old and worn out that I didnt have certain tools to remove them out and they were really tough as well. But also anytime you purchase new pads and rotors, check the conditions of your calipers.
