Default What I did...

I have a 97 OB.

I put on KVR front pads. No squeaks or noise. I also put on a set of stainless steel brake lines. I picked them up from www.cyberauto.com. Techno-fit brand name. (?) I wasn't really being fussy about name, just as long as they fit. You can get the KVR products through them too. (I was able to find mine locally.)

As for fluid, I went with Motul 5.1 (not silicone stuff like 5.0). Got mine though SynLube. They relabel the stuff under their name.

Have you tried the "Hit a curb" method? I hear it works really well!

Sorry, couldn't resist.

More seriously:

Dale Teague carries the Goodridge SS Lines and both MRT and EBC pads.

Will those brake lines work on an outback? I've heard some people say that they aren't long enough to deal with the slightly raised suspension, but it could have been another brand.
