  • 1.8 Brake Pad Questions...

    Hello all,

    So I have gotten some Hawk HP+ pads, front and rear, for a 1.8 brake upgrade. (currently have NA6 brakes)

    I plan on purchasing a set of NB2 sport brakes with the larger rotors and everything else that's needed to do the swap.
    On summits page, where I got the pads from, they say they will fit an LS Miata from 2000-2005 but I'm not sure if I trust their information and would rather have a definite answer before opening packages too far.

    Will all 1.8 brake pads work with any 1.8 calipers and rotor assembly?

    Or are there differences between the non-Sport 1.8 pads, and the Sport 1.8 Brake pads?

    The bigger brakes were an option on 01-02, and came standard in 03-05. You will want to make sure to get the Sport 1.8 brake pads.

    Do you have a link to the Summit Racing page where you bought the pads?

    This link shows the difference between the non-sport and sport pads.

      Thank you for the Moss miata link. I should be able to look at mine and tell if they will fit, but I have them at home and not in front of me atm.

        Looks like you have the pads for the normal brakes. According to Hawks website, those part numbers are for the "Normal Suspension" models.

        The part numbers you are looking for are:
        Front: HB431N.606 http://www.hawkperformance.com/perfo...pads/hb431n606
        Rear: HB468N.492 http://www.hawkperformance.com/perfo...pads/hb468n492
