I was looking at pads on Tire Rack and they look pretty good (Satisfied Pro Ceramic Pads). I am looking at Ceramic for the least amount of dust. They also work quite well. Anyone treid these?

Also, it looks like Hawk doesn't make a regular front pad?

Ceramics, if you buy decent ones (I used and recommend the ones from Bendix) will improve stopping power, but they tend to eat away rotors a bit quicker. I've heard a lot of high pitch squeal complaints about Hawk HPS pads.

The only Satisfied pad I would even try is the GS5 (or 1-4 if they made them for our cars). I wouldn't even try the GS6.

Hawk does make a ceramic pad for your car (p/n HB241Z.710). I don't know too much about that, but Hawk seems to make a good pad.

I would seriously go with the Bendix CT-3 (p/n D591CT). I'm not just saying that because I work with Bendix. The CT-3 pads have good stopping power, low dust, no noise, and are easy on the rotors. The pads have good life also.

As for the Hawk HPS pads, I'm currently using them and for the most part I'm liking them. The HPS are a semi-met pad though. They are dusty, but not too bad. They have very good stopping power. But when they get hot, they do tend to be noisey.

I should have posted this last night, but I was tired.

Advance Auto is your best bet. You can also buy online from them.

The cheapest place that I've seen is actually at Amazon.com through their partnership with Auto Barn. The picture at Amazon is not the correct picture.

I've seen them on ebay at times also. I did a quick check and didn't see any currently listed (of D591CT).

LoL, sound's like how my wife drive's! Well after messing with the guy's here at my Autozone with the brakes, I just gave them the finger and took my money somewhere else. And the Rotors that I got at the same time sucked too, they warped after a few months. So I just sayed screw AutoZone left the Rotors, Brake Pads on the counter for the guy's. :eviltongu

Warlord, (the Advanced Auto link)I can't tell but it looks like that is an axle set. But which end of the car? Can you use those for front and rear?

Thanks Strongt, that seems insane for Brake pads. Is there a way of knowing what is on the car now but looking at them?
If you want a premium pad that does what you want, expect to pay a few bucks. If you go the $20 route, don't expect it to do what you want to.

You would have to look at the pads on your car know in order to know what you have on there.

If you are 100% sure you have the OE pads (which is highly unlikely unless you don't use your brakes), than I can look that up for you without needing to remove the pads. Let me know.
