So far so good. Have put about 700 miles on the truck without any brake noise, better than stock braking and very,very little brake dust.I also put on oem rotors from an auto store. Most of my driving is highway. I hate brake dust, so they were worth the money.

I've bought expensive breaks and cheap ones and these are worth the money. I'm hard on breaks and these breaks are like energizer bunnies so far. I followed the bedding instructions carefully for break in. When hauling extra weight, I stop better than I ever have.

The Hawk LTS are a large improvement over the stock Ford F150 pads. Initial bite is about the same as the OEM's but once you apply the pedal the stopping power is a vast improvement.

I matched these with EBC slotted dics on my 4Runner. The stock rotors warped (again...) and the stock pads and rotors are no match for the heft of the 4Runner. The pads and rotors went on easy and from the start have been a huge difference. Zero squeal and minimal brake dust. It now feels like you can bring the truck to an emergency stop if needed.

I've had these Hawk LTS pads with the EBC slotted/dimpled rotors on our Honda CRV for over a year and they are WONDERFUL! Great pedal feel, terrific response, low dust and very, very quiet. They only thing is you will hear a fan-type "whirring" sound due to the dimpled rotors. I now bought the exact same thing for our Eclipse GT and expect similar great results. The factory rotors on the Eclipse warped a bit by about 15k miles so they have to go. (I HATE that feel in the pedal.) BUY THESE PADS, and BUY THE SLOTTED/DIMPLED ROTORS. It is well worth the money. (About $300 total.)

I wanted to upgrade my stock OEM brakes on my 2000 Lincoln Navigator 4X4 to something with more stopping power. My SUV weighs 5,500lbs and was very hard to stop with stock brakes. With the new HAWK LTS brakes Pads I really see a major improvement with the stopping power. I also replaced the stock rotors with "SP Performance" drilled and slotted rotors to reduce heat build-up from heavy braking with a 6,000lb boat & trailer.

I have a 2006 F-350 King Ranch; it is a crew cab dually, and when pulling a 14k load, I find it necessary to slow it down pretty quickly on occasion. These pads do just that.

Installed the pads front and back with sets of Powerslot Cryo rotors. I mainly needed an upgrade to the brakes as I am pulling a fairly heavy tent trailer this season. Install was smooth and everything matched up really well with the stock calipers. Broke them in according to the box instructions and a couple of days later they performed flawlessly on a 300-mile mountain roadtrip.
