If you’re hearing squealing, taking longer to stop, or noticing strange vibrations, it may be time to change your Mustang’s rotors and brake pads.
Selecting the right brake pad can make a big difference in your driving experience. Brake pads are made from many compounds, including semi-metallic, ceramic, and non-metallic options. Some brake pad materials are better for certain types of driving.
If most of your driving time is spent commuting to work, you can stick with a non-metallic brake pad. Non-metallic, or non-asbestos organic, brake pads usually come stock from the factory.
Semi-metallic and ceramic brake pads are best for performance driving. They're more durable and offer better bite than your stock brake pads. They also pair well with sport or racing rotors to maximize your stopping power.
Ceramic brake pads also make the least amount of noise and brake dust (which can damage your Mustang’s wheels).
