It's about time to replace my brakes, so I'm planning on getting Hawk HPS pads and Raybestos rotors.

My question is, will the Hawk HPS front pads work in a Non-ABS Cobalt? On ZZP's website, they have you select front or rear, then Non-Brembo Cobalt or Brembo HHR, so that made me wonder if the pads might be different between a Non-ABS Cobalt and a Non-Brembo Cobalt SS.

The ABS doesn't care what pads, calipers, or rotors you use. If your wheel bearings are bad, it only matters what hub you get.

In the past on my old car I have used the Autozone gold pads with there new duralast gold rotors that are black in color they held up great and looked good for over a year with no rust :)

Cool, so my Non-ABS Cobalt will be able to use those pads. Thanks guys.

Time to start ordering things.

Hmm. Just got an email from ZZP that says that those pads are only for the Cobalt SS and won't fit the LS/LT. I guess the SS used different pads?

The SS has different brakes, yes.

Ah. I knew the Brembo SS had different brakes. Didn't know the Non-Brembo SS had anything different than a base w/ ABS.

Looks like Amazon carries Hawk HPS for the LS/LT. Those aren't different for ABS vs. Non-ABS right? Because mine doesn't have ABS.

These?



Also, I can't seem to find anywhere and just don't know, do I need to buy 2 of these to replace both front brakes? Or is this a full set?

Yup, those are the pads.

It contains the full set - inners and outers for both sides of the front.

Awesome sauce. I'll order those and the Raybestos rotors.
Rotors aren't sold in pairs, right? I'll need to order 2?

No, rotors are sold by themselves. You'll need two.
