Brake pads.... Yup that question again.
 
Ive read a number of threads here.
But what is the general consensus on the Hawk pads.
Ceramic less stopping power less dust.
HPS better stopping more dust than Ceramic, less than OEM.

What is the best for general all around use (no track).
I keep going back and forth between the 2. I need input
I also heard people having a lot of squeal with these, even after proper bedding. Any more feedback on this?

OEM

That wont work for me, since the OEM Brembos have the Hockey Pucks on the pads.
And I have clearance issues.

I think I will be going with the HPS and Give them a try.
Now I just need to find the best deal on them.

My 2010 did not have the "hockey pucks".

HPS is the way I would personally go. Be sure to hit us up. We won't let anyone have a better deal.

You may want to try bedding the new pads, scuffing the rotors with sand paper of worst case scenario turning the rotors. The brake pad compounds imbed on the rotors. The old and new compounds cause squealing when not compilable. In most cases squealing goes away after several thousand miles or heavy applications as in bedding. Good luck.

So new pads and rotors should bed just fine?

i dont have anything fancy like you SS'ers but i am having a bit of a break problem if any of you have some suggestions...
ever hear a knocking or thumping while depressing the pedal??

I went to have my HAWK HPS put on today and during the bedding phase the mechanic was hearing a thump or a knock on both sides and was feeling it in the pedal....they looked at it again and it was tight fitting. the only thin he came up with is that during driving the pads shift back and forth in the cradle, causing a knock...so he said i have the wrong pads and put the old one back on....is this common and what happened?? im sure i got the right pads for the front HB638F.702...there just pads ...how hard can this be?...maybe its the mechanic...any thoughts??
any body use STOPTECH rotors and pads??

turns out TODAY while driving i heard that same noise...so it wasnt the pads after all it was something they did...any ideas so i can tell the mechanic to check it out??

HELP NEEDED
thanks
