Product Description

Hawk Performance
Get better braking performance and longer pad life with a set of Hawk Ceramic front brake pads for your 07-12 Shelby or 11-14 Track Pack equipped Mustang 5.0. Looking for a great brake pad upgrade for your street driven Mustang? Then look no further than Hawk Performance Ceramic Compound Pads. These pads fit 2007-2012 Mustang GT500 & 2011-2014 GT Brembo Upgrade applications. Hawk understands the demands of today’s ceramic brake pad users, and specifically formulated these ceramic composite material to meet the ultra low dust, low noise performance of OE ceramic pads. The advantage of this performance ceramic compound is that they don’t sacrifice stopping power in order to achieve the traditional ceramic pad attributes. Additionally, this ceramic product provides a linear friction profile which allows your Mustang ABS system to operate more effectively. This Hawk Performance Ceramic is engineered to reduce brake NVH (Noise, Vibration and Harshness), creating a quieter performing brake pad. With hawk's Performance Ceramic you can expect reduced brake pad wear, lower dust output levels and a rotor-friendly brake pad.

Hawk Performance Ceramic are a perfect replacement for your factory pads and are designed for every day driving applications.

Installation Note

-Fits 2007-12 Mustang GT500
-Fits 2011-14 Mustang GT w/ Brembo Brakes

Important Installation Instructions
All brake pads require a burnishing or bedding-in procedure in order to achieve optimal performance and durability. During the bedding-in process the pad conforms to the rotor surface and generates an import transfer film. Prior to installation, make sure the brake system is free and clear of debris, brake fluid is replaced and all brake components are properly installed and in good working order.

Bed-in / Burnishing Instructions:
1. After installing new brake pads, make 6-to-10 stops from approximately 30-35 MPH applying moderate pressure.
2. Make an additional 2-to-3 hard stops from approximately 40-45 MPH.
4. Allow at least 15 minutes for the brake system to cool down.
5. After step 4 is completed, your new brake pads are ready for use.

5 Stars   Hawk PC pads for Brembo
By on 2/10/2014
Recently replaced my 2011 GT front Brembo brakes (rotors and pads). Due to having gloss black wheels I decided to try the Hawk PC pads. Hawk made a believer out of me! Not only was the install a snap, but after three weeks the dust is next to nothing, no noise and firm braking power.The package even came with high temperature brake lubricant for a complete install ! Will be installing these on the rear soon...Thanks LRS once again!

Yes, I would recommend this item to a friend!

4 Stars   Greatly reduced my brake dust issue
By on 8/9/2014
I bought these to replace the factory Brembo brake pads that dusted horribly. I read several reviews on these Hawk pads and while I am getting a lot less dust, I'm not (in my opinion) getting as little dust as other reviewers have claimed. It's still a big improvement though, and that was the reason I bought these. Any braking performance improvements (which I haven't experienced yet) would just be an added bonus for me.

Yes, I would recommend this item to a friend!

1 Stars   These Pads SUCK!
By on 7/19/2014
Purchased these pads and a new set of rotors for my car.. Performed the bedding procedure and drove the car about 500 miles and they started squealing under normal braking.. . Sounds worse than a bus when stopping!! NO help from Hawk other than "try resanding the pads and rotors (did that and still the same).. Will never buy another set of pads from hawk again!!
From LMR.com: We apologize that you are having problems with these pads. Please expect a call from a customer service representative on the matter shortly.

5 Stars   Low Dust LMR.com Expert Review!
By on 4/4/2016
The previous pads that were in my Brembo brakes would dust like crazy after just a couple of days. It's been more than a week now and the wheels still look clean. Definitely worth the money to save time from constant cleaning. The pads bite well for great stopping performance as well.

Yes, I would recommend this item to a friend!

Great pads - it also included grease but would been even better if they included brake pad retainer spring/clip. A breeze to install.
