Front Brake Replacement Pads

1061 Views 3 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  Smartiez
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!

Ceramic pads............

I HIGHLY recommend the ceramic pads sold at O'Reiley auto parts and other places. Brakes stronger, NO brake dust to clean,
and only squeal or noise,is after sitting in rain overnight,with slight surface rust on rotors...............
