Hawk HPS on my R/T!!!! Even though your rotors might still be in good shape, you should at least get them cut when replacing the pads.

From someone who has used both Bendix CT-3 and Hawk HPS, I would say go with Bendix CT-3.

I have tried two different OE pads, Bendix Titaniumetallic, Bendix CT-3, and Bendix Titaniumetallic II pads. None of those made any noise. The Hawk HPS pads sound almost like a bus in stop-n-go traffic. The Hawk HPS pads perform better than the OE pads, but perform only slightly better than the Bendix, expect for the CT-3 pads which perform the same as the Hawk HPS pads.

I would go with Bendix CT-3 (and not just because I work for Bendix). The front pad for your car is D591CT, and assuming you have rear disc, the rear pad is D415CT.

D591CT --> http://www.partsamerica.com/ProductDetail.aspx?mfrcode=BEN&mfrpartnumber=D591CT
D415CT --> http://www.partsamerica.com/ProductDetail.aspx?mfrcode=BEN&mfrpartnumber=D415CT

btw...According to Summit Racing, who got the word directly from Hawk, Hawk no longer supplies the HP Plus pad for our application. I really wanted to try those too.

Here is my trusty comparison chart. I had to peg the HPS pads down from a six to a five in the performance category. As the HPS pads "age", they seem to have gone down in performance. Some pads do that.

hmm - its a smaller shop & i know at least some of the gs have modded cars.... i wonder.... they said they could get about anything...
would they order them from the same place as me & for the same price? if so id probably get them so i don't get over charged. i know they only charge like 25 or 35 dollars more for customer provided parts.... hmmm

That is generally the least expensive place to get them, but stores/shops are free to set their own price.

Amazon.com is actually cheaper, but they don't always have everything in stock.

It looks like Amazon does have the front pads, and are cheaper than Advance Auto.

Doesn't look like Amazon has the rears though.

Any kind of brand just be sure they are only in ceramic.
