Hawk HPS 5.0 brake pad question

I have seen the Hawk HPS 5.0 pads listed for the Stinger GT fronts, but I have not found anything for the rears. Do they make this pad for our rear brakes, or is there a cross reference to another model that will fit our rear brakes...Thanks for any help.

Would you mix the hawk front pads with something else in the rear?

Sure that wouldn't hurt anything.

Disagree. Different compound pads will change the brake bias of the car... and it could do it in a positive, neutral or negative way depending on which compound is front vs rear. The safest and most predictable bet is to have the same compound all around or a gripper compound up front. You probably won’t notice much on the street if you mixed them unless you’re really stomping down on them.
