Description
Superior Stopping Power. Whether you're replacing worn-out stock pads or looking for an inexpensive way to improve your GT500's stopping power, Hawk HPS pads are an affordable alternative to a complete brake upgrade. The Hawk HPS pads have a 20-40% better braking and higher resistance to fade than other replacement pads on the market for the stopping power you need, when you need it. Street/Strip Use. Hawk HPS pads are a great balance of streetability and track performance. They're at their best once they're a little warm, but provide good stopping power even cold so you can drive them on your dual use street and strip 'Stang and still enjoy their performance advantages.



Reduced Brake Fade. If you like to take your Shelby to the track or strip, you know that brake fade is your enemy. Hawk HPS pads are designed to resist fade more than other pads, ensuring consistent braking even when things get hot.

Less Noise & Dust. Hawk uses a unique Ferro-Carbon formula for increased stopping power, low brake dust, and less noise than dedicated race pads.

Application. This set of Hawk HPS 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.

    I have the brembo upgrade on my GT and in driving the car hard; you see why getting a brake pad upgrade is necessary. The stock brakes are not bad but the Hawk HPS's are much MUCH better. The amount of dust is way less than the stock brakes and as far as the noise goes, I cant tell due to my crazy loud exhaust. Even if there were louder. So what... These out perform anything on the market. So do yourself a favor and slap these babies on your stang. You can thank me later.

    Great street pad and ok track pad.

    June 17, 2013

    Bites much harder than the stock Brembo pads. Almost slid off the front of my seat the first time I hit the brakes hard on the highway. Work great on the street, less dust than the stock pads. Did a track day yesterday with them. Fade resistance about the same as stock but with more stopping power. Could do with more but this is the compromise with a streetable pad. AM, you should change the description as you don't include GTs with the Brembo option. These are the same pad.

    Great bang for your buck!

    July 23, 2014

    Simple install with the Brembo calipers. Good stopping power. Pretty resistant to fade although they will squeak for about a day after repeated hard braking. Good balance for streetable performance pads. Overall, you cant beat them for the money.

    Straight forward Product/Install

    September 30, 2013

    The american muscle instructions were great! I forgot what the original stopping performance was from my '12 Brembos, but the HPS pads feel good. I think I should've installed new rotors as well, that is feeling like a weak point after having these new pads on. THE NOISE IS MUCH LESS THAN ADVERTISED. I was a little worried about that, but I haven't noticed any noise at all. Basic tool, got dirty, but overall easy install in the garage.

    improved braking feel

    September 10, 2013

    these pads should have come on the car from the factory. they improve the braking feel by leaps and bounds and produce less dust. they also help promote braking confidence when hauling the mail into a turn.

    Excellent product

    September 29, 2014

    If you own a 13/14 GT with brembo brakes, you're going to WANT these pads. So after 3,800 miles and 3 track days (admittedly, one of those track days I ran the car hard), my Ford OEM brembo brake pads were toast. Had another track day coming up and so on a Weds, I call up American Muscle and they overnight me a set of the Hawk HPS pads. Installation was fairly straight-forward, though I did have to improvise a bit with the compression of the pistons (used some mini-clamps I purchased from Home Depot. Note, do ONE brake pad side at a time and you'll need two clamps per side!). The pistons were very easy to push back in, but as noted, you'll have to keep one clamped while you compress the other. Ok, so ran these pads on a road course this weekend, hard, five 15-minute sessions and they performed very well. No fade, more bite than OEM pads and very, very little brake dust. After driving home from the race, there was a little bit of pad squeak, but it was temporary, expected, negligible and went away quickly. Very quiet during hard braking and no noise on the street. I am extremely pleased with these pads and as others have mentioned, these should be standard issue for the Mustang.

    Hawk HPS Brake Pads

    September 24, 2014

    Great stopping power with little to no noise. A huge improvement over the factory Brembo pads. Pedal feel is improved and braking is more consistent. Initial bite is significantly improved and allows for a bit more stopping power before ABS intervention.

    Great Pads

    April 19, 2013

    Great Pads, can be a little on the loud side if they get to hot or its really cold out. They also produce more dust but well worth the trade off from the junk stock pads.

    The pads are not completely "bedded in"... but, the Shelby stops much better and the brake dust is almost "minimal"!!!
