Default What are good brake pads for my L sedan?? Suggestions??

Title says it all, I have the stock brakes, which are a little smaller than the RS brakes. Thanks for the help

webkris... speak up
I know that you can't put rs pads on them.... w/ out serious dremmel work (ask Kris). As for pad replacement, I don't know, I haven't been there yet. But when I do get there... I'm going to do the wrx upgrade (maybe).

Then I believe I would also have to replace the calipers, which could get a bit pricey. I just want to change the brake pads for now.

What's wrong with using the stock pads? www.subaruparts.com

Unless you have some special need ie track event, the stockers are very good pad material.

I have some used stockers that you can have. All you have to do is pick them up.

Later,

Well I got some Reybestos pads at Pep boys yesterday cuz I thought I was almost all the way through the pads, but I take them off and it turns out they have a lot more life to them. I didnt get stock pads because I figured they would cost an arm and a leg. How are the Reybestos pads? Should I keep them or return them?
