This product is not recommended for personal or recreational trucks and SUVs.

All Hawk Performance street brake pads provide a limited lifetime warranty, ensuring products to be free of defects from manufacturer’s workmanship and materials. See the FAQ section on our website (www.hawkperformance.com) warranty information.

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. See the FAQ section on our website (www.hawkperformance.com) for more information on proper brake pad bedding procedure.

General Questions

Installation Procedure

  1. Install brake pads properly. Be sure pads are securely positioned in the caliper.
  2. Flush system with fresh brake fluid.
  3. Check all hydraulic parts for excess wear and tear.
  4. Check disc for proper thickness, parallelism, and lateral runout.
  5. Check disc for scoring or grooves over .012”depth. If either applies, resurfacing is required.
  6. If discs do not need resurfacing, then contamination from the previous brake pads must be removed. Sand discs with 130-grit sandpaper using moderate pressure. Use soap and water to clean disc surface after sanding and machining. Discs should be free and clear of oil, grease, and brake fluid.
  7. Inspect calipers for freedom of movement. Lubricate where necessary.

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.
  3. DO NOT DRAG BRAKES!
  4. Allow at least 15 minutes for the brake system to cool down.
  5. After step 4 is completed, your new Hawk Performance brake pads are ready for use.
