Hawk Performance has just released the new HPS 5.0 brake pad that is the perfect upgrade over your factory pad! These Mustang front brake pads will be a direct fit for 1994-2004 Mustang Cobra, 2001 Bullitt, and 2003-04 Mach 1. The new compound is great for ABS equipped Mustangs as it has just the right amount of torque. Too much brake torque and your ABS goes into ICE mode, too little and there is no improvement to the product. Pedal feedback, Noise, Brake Torque and Dust control was their goal with High-Performance Street 5.0. Not a replacement for the current HPS product, but a change that allows the driver to challenge themselves and their car with a new and unique driving feel.
HPS 5.0 Compound
