Default Performance Brake Pads

I'm sick of the stock brake pads. We have replaced them twice, and they still squeak. Not to mention, the braking stinks. So, now that I drive the Outback, my dad wants to get me some sort of aftermarket brake pad that will make the car brake faster, and of course, safer. What's your guys suggestions? I don't think he wants to replace the whole brake, just the pads.

Default re: brakes

I have the same problem with squeaking brakes. Supposedly it is the semi metallic pads, which may be remedied with a more expensive ceramic version. I refuse to waste money until the time comes, but I honestly can't wait to give them a try. Hopefully someone else can offer more expertise with these, but in the meanwhile may be worth looking into.

Didn't have any squeaking with the OEM pads and haven't ever developed any with the aftermarket ones either.

I've made two brake pad changes so far to my Outback.
Put a set of pads from SPO motorsports on there first - went with semi-metallic since I wanted to avoid any rotor issues. The bite is better than stock and dust is minimal.

Recently I swapped the brake lines for Goodridge lines and went with the Axxis Ultimate pads. They really have some bite and the braking is really nice now. They do dust quite a bit, but I don't mind that much now that the car stops more in line with my expectations.
