Brake Pads

well i will need to replace mine pretty soon and thought about getting hawk HPS pads. i've read a lot of good reviews about them and some not so good so thought i'd see if anyone here has used them on their car before.

Re: Brake Pads

My dad had them on his 2000 GT.....He loved them, they stopped so much better than stock, didn't fade, firm pedal and were quiet.....they wore pretty quick but thats what performance pads do because they're softer. I really liked driving the car with those brakes as well!

It's his lame "I'm trying to be funny" response. He only has the autozone pads on the rear which are about 20% of your stopping force...so yeah.

Hawks are good. Kyle put them on his car and he has liked them once they got broken in. They would squeek on him when they were first installed, but only when almost stopped after mashing the brake pedal. Now they are quiet...and stop very well.

Re: Brake Pads

house brand pads, i'll pass on those. right now i have bendix pads on the front and rear. the rear have been pretty awesome but the front ones i've not been pleased with. i made the mistake of getting the semi metalic instead of the ceramic pads. i am going to order the hawk pads at advance and bring my old bendix pads back and just pay the difference.

Re: Brake Pads

The Bendix pads on the front of my car suck. They feel squishy, and i have to clean my wheels everyother day. I just ordered a set of the hawk HPS pads cant wait till they get in.

Re: Brake Pads

I made the mistake of letting my mechanic friend change my brake pads. He used semimetallic ones since it was reccomended by Ford. Now I sound like a school bus when I stop...

Re: Brake Pads

I use wagner pads from o-reilly and have had allot of positive feedback from customers. They dont have the dreaded squeeling and squeeking and have little to no brake dust. I have had and am currently running hawk pads on our shop car and unless you are road racing and doing some heavy braking I dont recommend them.I find the hawk pads generate allot of brake dust and on polished alum rims thats a nightmare. I have also experienced brake squeel from the hawk pads but they dont ever fade, they stop on a dime.

Re: Brake Pads

TPS Performance here in the Baton Rouge Area. They are looking to be sponsors of this site once their full time grand opening happens....so you should learn more about them in the upcoming months.

They are litterally just around the corner from where I live...
