    Brake Pad Upgrade

    I'm at the point where I'm installing the front brake calipers and I would like to drop in some upgraded pads over what came in the kit. I have the standard FFR brakes, not the Wilwoods. Does anyone have handy the part number for the pads they upgraded to, and what manufacturer did you use? Thanks!

    I wasn’t real happy with the stock pads and ended up switching to the Hawk HPS pads. Mike Forte hooked me up with the correct ones.

    Good luck

    I have the hps as well. They stop the car and don’t create too much dust. Only pads I’ve had on it so can’t give you a comparison with something else

    Had both S & +. + makes more dust but stops better. ArmorAll "Outlast" sprayed on clean wheels lets you wipe them off with a clean rag or shop towel. Zero work.
