    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 Mustang's rear brakes 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 Pads with little brake dust

            I've been using these pads since I bought my Cobra in 2006 and have always enjoyed their stopping power! It's also good to know that these pads will properly fit the Cobra rear brakes!! I was going to switch to a different brand once and found that the brake pads for the Cobra were the same as the GT. After fighting with them for hours, I finally went back and ordered another set of Hawk Performance Ceramic Brake Pads. When measured, The pads that I was fighting with had a bit more material and were not designed to fit the Cobra rotors! In fact, they were the same pads recommended for the V6 and GT!!! Simply put, save the time and effort with not having to wonder if you have the right size pads. Go with Hawk and never look back! the fit well and function as advertised!

            Best brakes I have ever purchased!

            Replacing my old brakes with the new ceramic Hawkins is the best investment I have ever made for my 2001 Mustang Bullitt GT. Braking power is on point and with very little, if any, brake dust. One of the best brake pads for any Mustang put there!

            Hawk brake pads

            I ask around a bunch of speed shops before ordering these pads. They all said to go with the hawk brakes and they were right. They are much better then stock and other brakes i have got for my cobra.

            Great breaks

            These break pads are great. A bit expensive but you get what you pay for. Haven't really gotten to drive too much with them but from the little bit i have they seem to have great stopping power and great grip.

            Hawk Ceramic Pads

            These pads are amazing. Very good stopping capability for a car that gets driven hard on a regular basis yet puts out very little brake dust!

            Good brakes

            I'm very impressed with how quick the shipping was. The brakes have been working great and I'm very happy with them. Still getting used to the smell of hot ceramic pads though.

            They fit, the stop fast, and they don't squeak or rattle.

            I've tried several aftermarket pads that have all fit poorly, squeaked, rattled, left of ton of brake dust, and not really performed. These do none of they. They go right in without a fuss and do what they are supposed to do without polluting your ears or your wheels. I'll be buying these from now on when I need new pads.
