Hawk® Performance Front Quiet Slot Rotors & HPS Brake Pad Kit for 07-15 Jeep® Wrangler & Wrangler Unlimited JK

Catalog #: 56214.0580
Hawk® Performance Part #: HKF678569
Description

Hawk Performance Quiet Slot™ rotors are cast from a proprietary formulation of premium alloys producing a superior performance street product. Quiet Slot™ rotors combine the look, feel and durability of a true performance rotor with the fitment and convenience of OE design. These rotors feature a unique slot design specifically engineered to improve your car's braking performance and driver comfort. All Quiet Slot™ rotors are meticulously checked for proper balance, thickness, flatness and runout. All rotors are manufactured in ISO certified facilities.
Hawk's Performance HPS compound provides advanced braking characteristics to enhance your driving experience with increased stopping power. This unique compound combines the safety and quality of Aerospace design partnered with the braking technology of motorsports. Hawk HPS Pads deliver high friction and torque with low rotor wear. Hawk Pads are long wearing with low dust and virtually noise free. One set does one axle.

Details

Metallurgy: Quiet Slot™ rotors are cast from a proprietary formulation of premium alloys producing a superior performance street product.

  • Noise-dampening steel formulation.
  • Long-grain carbon iron for maximum thermal stability.
  • Molybdenum additive for high temperature strength and thermal crack resistance.
  • Unique alloy blend provides exceptional rotor life and durability.

Design: Quiet Slot™ rotors combine the look, feel and durability of a true performance rotor with the fitment and convenience of OE design.

  • Performance design - Direct OE replacement.
  • Unidirectional vanes eliminate the need for left and right side rotors.
  • Optimal rotor vane and wall thickness improves structural strength, noise dampening and heat capacity.

Note: Heat cracking and rotor warpage are inherent risks with cross-drilled rotors.

  • OE style vane design combined with increased heat capacity dramatically improves brake pad and rotor life.

Quiet Slots: Hawk Performance® Quiet Slot™ rotors feature a unique slot design specifically engineered to improve your car's braking performance and driver comfort.

  • Increases initial bite.
  • Improves wet weather brake performance.
  • Effectively removes gas and wear debris.

Note: Cross-drilled & dimpled and heavily slotted rotors accelerate pad wear generating excessive brake dust and premature pad wear.

  • When the brakes are not engaged, the Quiet Slot™ rotor vane and surface slot design effectively cuts through the surrounding air flow virtually eliminating the "whirling" noise typically encountered with cross drilled or heavily slotted rotors.
  • Visual wear indicator. Rotors should be replaced when slots are worn down and no longer visible.
  • Optimizes overall brake performance. Note: Cross-drilled, heavily slotted and dimpled rotors reduce the contact area of the rotor with the brake pad. This environment reduces the effectiveness of the brake pad, can cause damage to the desired transfer film and increase rotor surface temperatures.

Surface Finish:

  • Swirl ground surface for improved brake pad bed-in and "green" out of the box performance.
  • Specific RMS finish accelerates the creation of a proper transfer film when run with Hawk Performance® brand brake pads.
  • All rotors are finished with a GEOMET® coating that protects both the internal and external surfaces from rust and corrosion.

What is GEOMET®?
GEOMET® is a proprietary water-based coating dispersion containing metal oxides, metallic zinc and aluminum flakes. The zinc and aluminum platelets align in multiple layers forming a metallic silver-gray coating. Applied as a liquid, the coating becomes totally inorganic after curing at 575-600F (300-315C).

WARNING! This rotor is intended for street use only!

    HPS - High Performance StreetSuperior Stopping PowerHPS - High Performance Street disc brake pads are world renowned for increasing stopping power on your street legal vehicle. Increasing the performance of your vehicles braking system is easy when you choose Hawk Performance’s HPS braking compound. This unique Ferro-Carbon formula was developed for street performance using the safety and quality of Aerospace and Motorsports severe-duty friction technology.The High Performance Street compound offers a higher coefficient of friction over stock brake pads and can provide you 20-40% more stopping power and higher resistance to brake fade than most standard replacement pads. Less fade means you’ll have a highly durable brake pad with less brake dust..HPS Ferro-Compound Features:
  • Increased stopping power
  • High friction/torque hot or cold
  • Gentle on rotors
  • Extended pad life
  • Low dust
  • Virtually noise-free
  • All Hawk Performance High Performance Street brake pads provide a limited lifetime warranty, ensuring products to be free of defects from manufacturer’s workmanship and materials.Note:Hawk Performance burnishes its High Performance Street brake pads as a final step in the factory, but all brake pads have to be bedded-in with the rotors (new or used) that they will be used against. Properly bedding-in new brake pads results in a transfer film being generated at the pad and rotor interface to maximize brake performance.

Brake Pad Installation Procedure1. Install brake pads properly. Be sure pads are securely positioned in the caliper.
2. Flush system with fresh brake fluid.
3. Check all hydraulic parts for excess wear and tear.
4. Check disc for proper thickness, parallelism, and lateral runout.
5. Check disc for scoring or grooves over .012”depth. If either applies, resurfacing is required.
6. If discs do not need resurfacing, then contamination from the previous brake pads must be removed. Sand discs with 130 grit sandpaper using moderate pressure. Use soap and water to clean discs’ surface after sanding and machining. Discs should be free and clear of oil, grease, and brake fluid.
7. Inspect calipers for freedom of movement. Lubricate where necessary.Burnishing Instructions1. After installing new brake pads, make 6 to 10 stops from approximately 30-35 mph applying moderate pressure.
2. Make an additional 2 to 3 hard stops from approximately 40 to 45 mph.
3. DO NOT DRAG BRAKES!
4. Allow 15 minutes for brake system to cool down.
5. After step 4 your new pads are ready for use.
