|09-26-2012 12:02 PM|
2008 SEDAN FRONT Stoptech: 309.13390 $65.11 (set) Amazon
Total for Stoptech: $112.36
Might have to do that instead.

Best Prices on each set.
2002 SVT REAR Green EBC’s: DP21218----- $48.72 (set) eBay
2008 SEDAN FRONT Green EBC’s: DP21822----- $67.85 (set) eBay
* Amazon was about the same. Each site looked to be about $10 cheaper than most auto parts stores.
Total for EBC's all around = $116.57 shipped.
Hope they're worth it.

So, when I am looking at hawk pads on http://www.hawkpadsdirect.com/
They don't show any pads for an 08 focus... Anyone happen to know the parts number for them? I am almost positive they have them for 08-11.
If not looks like I am going EBC.
EDIT: Nevermind, looks like Hawk doesn't make pads for the front calipers of an 08. Was also contemplating between the red and the green but EBC doesn't make RED rear pads for an 02 SVT and I don't want to spend $200 for the yellows so looks like I am going Green.

|Geezer||Believe it or not, Amazon has been having some really good prices on automobile parts. They have quite a listing for Hawk HPS pads.|

|Geezer||In the majority of cases a ceramic pad will not perform any better than a standard semi-metallic pad and they usually cost more as well. Some even lack the same performance (look at Tireracks brake pad performance chart). The only real benefit from ceramics is they tend to dust less. Personally I'd stick with a reliable and "proven" street performance pad like Hawk HPS. You're going to all this expense to improve braking so why gamble? Go with a sure thing!|

Not to bring back a dead thread but I am getting ready to do my swap and I am going to go with some hawk break pads for the rear (Breaks are from 02 SVT). I was thinking of getting these bad boys:
then getting the right ones for the front as well.
Anyone know if another retailer offers them any cheaper?
Would you recommend a different pad?
Thanks for the info.
