Looking to get new brake pads but I can't decide on Hawks HPS or AXXIS ULT for my LX front brakes. I'm basically looking for quietness and whichever one creates the least amount of dust. (I'm aware that if there's no dust, the brake pads aren't working)

Get the HPS. I have the AXXIS pads and they dust quite a bit. They also squeal just a little bit when they're cold.

I wouldn't recommend any brake pad "upgrade" if you're concerned about dusting, since most pads that provide more bite, will dust as a side effect.

Stick to the OEM pads.

P.S. I have Hawk HPS on my Si and have to clean the rims every few days because they turn BLACK from dust... they stop like a mo'fo though so its worth it to me.
