Subaru Stars Please Help 2014 Impreza

Hello guys,

This is my first post. I know there are a lot of other threads about what I'm about to ask but after reading through some I have not found a direct answer to my current dilemma and would really appreciate the help from the community.
I have a 2014 Subaru Impreza 5-Door 2.0L. I need to change the break pads on them, and while I like the stock pads I am very interested in upgrading them to some with a bit more stopping power and durability. My pads have gotten so worn out they have begun to screech and I do not want to go to the dealer and drop $600 on a job that realistically cost $200-$300 max (just buy the pads and pay a good mechanic for labor). I have parked the car and am not driving it to not endanger myself, family or others, but I really need to find pads soon to commute to work.

So please, if anyone has any aftermarket pads that they have put on and are satisfied with if they do not mind posting the type of pads they have and a link of where I can get a full set of pads for every wheel.

I really appreciate the help and I am sorry if I am asking a redundant question.

-J

What the hell kind of driving are you doing that you already wore the pads down to the wear indicator? The stock pads have more stopping power than you need... If you can engage abs on dry road (and I guarantee you can) the weak point is your tires, not your brake pads.

Factory pads on late model cars tend to last 60-100k+ miles with a decent driver.

Why on earth are you being quoted $600? Is that for front and rear? A pad set should be $40-60 iirc, and about $150-200 for labor, per axle.

If you keep on top of your brake flushes, clean and lube your caliper slides, and use factory pads (they come with new stainless hardware), you shouldn't have to worry about brakes for years. If you neglect to care for your calipers, they can and eventually will seize up. Most of the calipers I replace are cheap aftermarket ones that didn't last half as long as the factory ones.
