Hawk HPS Brake Pads - Rear
04-05 Mazda 3

Hawk HPS Brake Pads - 2004-05 Mazda 3 - Rear Set (HB 571F.605) - We offer Hawk Brake streetable and race-application brake pads for a variety of applications. Hawk Brake's Ferro-Carbon semi-metallic brake pad compounds offer high torque, low wear, and excellent rotor life, while exhibiting predictable performance under a wide range of temperatures. For complete information about the Hawk Performance Brakes product line, follow this link to their corporate site.

These Hawk pads for the Mazda 3 rear application include a BACK PLATE RETENTION CLIP feature (see photos above). This rather complex design was later replaced on the 2006+ Mazda 3 with a more simple TOP CLIP retention spring. Mazda has since discontinued the back plate design and has replaced them for use on the 04-05 Mazda applications with the top clip version.  If your Mazda 3 is equipped with the back plate clip design, we recommend you use this design while they're still offered by Hawk as they offer slightly better ease-of-installation.

Installation Tip
When installing these pads the use of a 7mm hex socket bit is required to remove the caliper retaining bolts. Remove the parking brake cable from the caliber by rotating the spring plate with a pair of Channel-Lock type pliers.

HPS Street Compound
The Hawk HPS pads feature are an excellent street brake compound that provides an ideal upgrade over an OEM-type pad. Much improved stopping power over OEM and standard replacement pads, these pads offer low dust, low noise, minimal rotor wear, and reasonable pad wear. Well-suited for daily driving and spirited performance driving.
