I had these Hawk pads put on my 2008 Mazda CX-9 in hopes that the braking would improve since I was feeling like the vehicle was really diving when I applied the brakes hard. The Hawk pads have definitely improved this diving and over all the car stops with less break pressure. My only problem is the groaning noise that they make when the car is at a complete stop and you lightly let up on the brake pedal. I know this is something that I will have to live with but safety comes first and I feel better knowing that my car brakes more efficiently. Remember to bed the brakes after installation and don't forget to resurface rotors.
