Default Stock WRX brake pads - where to buy?

Local dealer said 79 bucks for front brake pads?? Are they made out of gold?
I would like to order front and rear pads from somewhere, so I'm looking for a place I can save some $. I figured I'd stick with stock since they seemed to work fine for me. I mostly commute with my car. (It's a 2002 WRX wagon if that makes any difference).

Thanks,

tripm

if the oems end up costing more than you thought, might want to look at axxis pads over at stoptech. i'm running axxis ultimates all around, i think spent <110 for all 4 and i know the price went down recently. if you want some stock pads, i've still got mine. lots of pad left, you can see a picture on my yahoo site.

got them at stoptech. talk to matt weiss, he's the subaru guy. very helpful and very hard to beat his customer service. they had a huge backorder a little less than a year ago and he kept me in the loop the whole time. don't think i can list prices or a link from their website, but lets just say the prices are very reasonable they dropped even more than from when i bought them.

personally i'm running axxis ultimates, i think they're an excellent street pad, and they also work well in freezing temperatures. there's another thread floating around somewhere about how the axxis pads dropped in price, maybe in the vendor forum.

you guys seriously will be very happy with the axxis pads. the only worry i had was that they wouldn't work well in cold weather but i've gone through one winter with them and still work well (but i'd still recommend warming them up with a couple slight to moderate stops, can't be too safe).

with the ultimates, lets just say my silver wheels look gunmetal. haven't used the metal mashers or deluxe compounds, i hear the deluxe ones dust very little. haven't noticed any extra noise, i'm using stock rotors right now. just make sure you bed in the pads well.
