Need new brake pads

Any suggestions?

99 v6, stock brakes, etc.

I just need some that are decent quality for now, preferably that don't squeak, and are on a tight budget. I'm hoping to upgrade the brakes soon, so I don't really want any super hard compound pads.

Re: Need new brake pads

just get oem ford, they last a long tie, they are good for stopping power, little dust. or just find some bendix one at kreagen or something.

Re: Need new brake pads

I'd really hate to see you put the cheap pads on, but if you're going to do the upgrade, that would be best for now, providing you don't wait too much longer. In fact, depending on when you're getting the new brakes, you may be better off just waiting and not even getting new pads unless they're in really bad shape...

Re: Need new brake pads

some of the best pads give the most dust.

Re: Need new brake pads

I don't race, street, drag, autox or otherwise, so that's not an issue.
