    I’m Justin with, and today I have with me 3 different brake pad options, all from Hawk Performance. We’re looking at the ceramic, the HPS, and the HP+, for both front and rear that will offer a broad range of performance that will suit everything from a bone stock daily driver, to an all out race course monster. Any one of these pads will far outperform your stock pads in just about every way, more braking performance, less fade and dust. However it’s very important you select the right pad for your application, so with that in mind, let’s break these 3 options down a little further. First up is the ceramic option from Hawk. These are going to be an ideal OE replacement and be perfectly suited for any daily driver, they’re going to bite strong without needing to be hot, be very quiet, and offer very minimal dust. This is all thanks to that ceramic compounds, which offers a nice balance between performance and everyday streetability. The next pad, the Hawk HPS will be right in the middle between the ceramics and the HP+ and will be for a daily driver or a weekend warrior, whose car does see a little track time and are just looking for a little bit more bite, and less fade. These pads utilize a therocarbon compound which does benefit from a little heat in order to perform their best but still offer great performance when cold. It is worth pointing out that these pads can be a little noisy when cold, and will definitely put off a little bit more dust than the ceramics, but all around, the HPS are a solid performer. Finally, we have the HP+. These are going to be for someone who subjects their Mustang to road courses and auto crossing where repetitive fade and high heat can kill lesser pads. Can you use these pads on the street? Yes, however, these pads feature a high temperature specific compound with a very high friction coefficient, which means these pads need to be hot and stay hot in order to perform at their best, like on a road course or an auto cross track. Once hot, these HP+ pads will bite hard, and offer great performance with very little fade, these pads tend to be very noisy and put off a good amount of dust, however since they’re geared more towards a race car versus a show car, most folks should be fine with that. Installing these pads from Hawk or any brake pads at that matter is a pretty simple task if you’ve never tackled brakes before. Due to the aggressive compounds of these pads, Hawk included a grease, to be used in conjunction with the included shim located on the back of the pad just to keep the noise level down. It’s very important that you use the grease on the back of the pad and not on the front of the pad, just so you don’t mess up your new brakes. Overall, getting the fronts and rears installed should only take you about 2 hours from start to finish. When it comes down to it, brake pads and tires are 2 of the biggest factors when it comes to helping your car stop faster. So try upgrading your Mustang to a quality pad like one of these Hawk options, and discover the difference in your braking performance.

    Great Stopping Power. Give your high-performance Pony the stopping power it needs with a set of Hawk Performance Ceramic brake 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 by upgrading to these brake 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 front only. They are designed for the 94-04 Cobra, 01 Bullitt, or 03-04 Mach 1 only. Will not fit GT or V6. Set includes driver-side and passenger-side brake pads.

      Great brake pads

      I would highly recommend hawk brake pads. These are quality pads unlike the cheaper pads that I replaced with these which were made poorly with large chunks of metal in the pad which caused alot of squealing. No noise with these ceramics and consistent stops everytime.

      Good pads, a little too dusty!

      These pads are great, and provide a ton of stopping power. The only problem is they do create a lot of brake dust! My bright silver wheels get dirty quickly, and I am cleaning them a lot more!

      Finally..Great Brakes & No Dust!

      I wanted brakes that were better than OEM with great stopping power, no fade, as low dust production as possible and definitely no squealing! These Hawk Ceramics for the '04 Mach 1 exceeded my expectations in every category! They are absolutely silent, & stop ferociously with no warmup just like they advertised! I love the clean rims now, just a quick wipe with a microfiber towel or a shot from the hose is all I have had to do so far in over 10,000 miles! I am not a serious track guy just VERY spirited daily driving & these pads are perfect for me! Looks like they will last a long time too...I'll update on that in the future.

      After much research, I decided to buy the set of these for my front and rear brakes. I had a shop install them because I didn't have a certain tool for it, and they did a fantastic job. If youre looking for some great stopping power for your every day driver stang this is it. Very content!

      Best brake pads for street use!

      These brake pads are awesome. I installed them on the mach 1 front brake calipers I have on my 2004 v6. These pads have excellent stopping power, have no noise whatsoever and have very little brake dust if any. If you have a stock to heavily modified street car then these are the perfect pads for your brakes. Plus you can't go wrong ordering from American Muscle. Thanks AM!

      Good brake pads

      I had these brakes in the past on two of my cars. Both times they worked better than expected. Brake dust is also cut down which is good on the rims. They were easy to install and for you 03-04 Cobra owners that have that annoying rattle sound from the brakes, these pads eliminated it for me. Overall good product, good fit and I would recommend them in the future.
