Hey my fellow Smarties!

I own a 2009 Passion and it's time for new front brake pads... Can some of you recommend decent pads without braking the bank. I don't need the rotors replaced. A mechanic mentioned getting OEM Textar brakes but not sure how good they are. I'm looking for pads that will give me the least squeal when braking. I've heard certain cheaper pads do squeal. Also, would you happen to know the stock model front pads that came with the 2009 Passion?

Thanks for your time and info!

Thanks, guys! It seems the O'Reilly ceramic pads C1252 are an excellent choice. Appreciate the feedback.
@jetfuel, thanks for the info re: noise coming from the back brakes.
