Default What type of Brake pad came org. on my '01 2.5L Outback???

Would anyone know if my car originally came with metallic or ceramic pads...the previous owner installed new non-metallic (organic pads) which certainly helps to explain the cars poor stopping abilities ..having called 2 aftermarket parts places,... one saying it uses metallic pads and the other saying ceramics came org. with the car..Also the 2 subaru dealers I called said they could not tell me since it comes in a subaru box and a close inspection by them would not help...one very well known dealer on the net offered to guess that it would be metalic and the other dealer said they were manuf. by Fuji??...I hope to find a solution that would provide the stopping power as good as my stock 86 turbo..even my 86 wagen with drum brakes stops better then the '01

Are you rotors worn as well? You can find a set of rotors and decent aftermarket pads for less that $200 and it should be a big start to correcting your weak brakes.
As for the Fuji comment, Subaru is a child company of Fuji Heavy Industries. It you look at alot of your OEM parts, they will have the initials FHI stamped into them.
