Hawk Performance LTS

We understand that traditional car brake pad technology just doesn't cut it on today's trucks. This is especially true for heavily loaded trucks and vehicles used in moderate towing. Our LTS (Light Truck and SUV) compound dramatically improves your vehicle's stopping power and fade resistance. It will also outlasts the competition in terms of rotor and pad wear. Ideal for a broad range of import and domestic vehicles, the LTS compound provides superior stopping power and longer pad life without excessive noise and dust. Engineered by truck brake pad experts, the Ferro-Carbon friction material of LTS is the optimal pad choice for light duty trucks, all classes of SUVs, and vans up to 1 ton. Expect 20-40% more stopping power over stock replacement pads.

Expert Opinion

The Hawk LTS is a good choice for light trucks and SUVs when your primary goal is to increase stopping power rather than minimize brake dust. The LTS compound is relatively clean but will generate some brake dust when compared to the Hawk Ceramic. The performance of the LTS will be better than the Hawk Ceramic and HPS, but not as good as the SuperDuty. If towing often, I would suggest the Hawk SuperDuty rather than the LTS, as the SuperDuty compound has a substantially higher temperature range to deal with high temperatures created while towing. If not towing often, the LTS will be your best choice.

Hawk Brake Pad Installation Procedure

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