Description
Great Stopping Power. Hawk Performance Ceramic brake pads are the ideal replacement pad for your GT500's OE 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 Shelby 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 Brake Pads are specifically designed to be used on the front of the 2007 to 2012 Shelby GT500, 2012-2013 Boss 302 and 2011-2014 GT Mustangs equipped with Brembo front calipers. Set includes driver-side and passenger-side brake pads.

Excellent stopping power!

Takes about an hour to install. Heck it takes longer to hoist it up an remove the wheels than it does to change the pads on the Brembo's. Better than stock stopping power and no noise so far. A little

    Better Than Imagined

    I was concerned about the stopping power of "ceramic" at first, but am very satisfied that I made the switch. In my opinion, they stop just as well as the stock brakes that came with my 2009 GT500. The real plus for this purchase comes in the fact that the amount of black dust has been reduced from 80% with the stocks (filthy after 50 miles of city driving) to about 15% with ceramics (hardly noticeable). You'd have to drive 500 miles around town with the ceramics to get the same amount of dust that the stocks get after just 25 miles and this is important if you ever go with any kind of chrome wheel. You won't regret this purchase.

    Excellent stopping power!

    Takes about an hour to install. Heck it takes longer to hoist it up an remove the wheels than it does to change the pads on the Brembo's. Better than stock stopping power and no noise so far. A little high priced for ceramic pads but way less that stock replacements and very high quality. I feel very confident with these braking my GT500 and would recommend them to anyone.

    Easiest Brake Pad replacement I've done

    First off, YES, these fit on 12-14 Brembo equipped GTs. As always, American Muscle has blown me away with getting me anything I've ordered very quickly. I ordered these on Sunday evening and they were on the truck at my location on Tuesday. UPS delivered on Wednesday morning. Price is fantastic. My local Ford Dealer quoted me $250 just for the pads, so AMs price was right on the money! I couldn't ask for better pricing and service!! I'll be honest; I really should have looked at a video on how to get the pins out before starting work. This was my FIRST install on pads with Brembo Brakes. Once I figured out how to get the pins out, it literally took me less than 15 mins each side to get the old pads out and the new ones in. Compressing the pistons was easier than on any other car I've done brakes for. Overall performance of the brakes is really good. Just a little better than the stock Brembo pads. They've only been on for less than 20 miles so I can't comment on the "ultra-low dust" that Hawk advertised. So far, I'm VERY happy!!! Again, thank you American Muscle!!!

    Fantastic

    To say this car made brake dust is an understatement, 50 miles and performance white looked grey. Little dust, smooth and linear feel, no noise, and did I say LITTLE dust!

    Awesome Pads!!!!!

    I recommend these pads too whom ever is a driver of any Gt500. The stock Brembo pads don't even compare to these. Easy installation, great stopping power, and best of all.....ultra low dust. Stock pads, your having too clean your rims daily. I highly recommend and highly suggest you purchase from American Muscle. No place else compares.

    Easy install for Brembos

    Never did a brake pad job myself; took the car to a do-it-yourself shop as I own virtually no tools. Had the car lifted and the pads changed nice and quick, probably 30 minutes total for the front. Don't have to deal with the annoying Ford slotting brake piston in the back, much easier to do with Brembos. I've only had them on a day but I have already noticed they bite nice are hard. And best of all, my brakes isn't squeaking anymore.

    Quiet!

    The pads that came with my Vintage Venom Brembo upgrade squealed so badly my wife didn't even want to talk to me on the phone in the car, and everyone always knew when I arrived home because of the noise. It's totally gone with these ceramics, and I still have fantastic braking power. And the reduction in dust on my chrome Cobra R's is like night and day, literally.

    Surprisingly good

    I am very impressed with the increased stopping power. Took a little bit to get used to it. There is the tiniest little squeaky from time to time so I wouldn't call the completely silent but it is well worth it for the performance. I would highly recommend these pads.

    Jury is still out

    So I have to say based on everything I read on these pads I was expecting a different feel. I didn't get it with the stock rotors. They stop fine and the pedal is smooth. People were saying it provides better bite but I'm not feeling it. Now with rotors I'm sure the combination will be great. The biggest win is the dust or should I say the lack of dust. I have driven over a week without cleaning the car and the wheels don't even have a haze of brake dust. Simply amazing. The lack of brake dust and the quiet operation make these an excellent buy even with stock pads.
