i would go the DS performance ones and make sure you put the shims on the back that way you will be sure to get no noise. and they are cheap good pads.

The best depends what your using them for.

Probably the best affordable pad avaliable would be Bendix SRT - but they're about $250.00 for a set. And being Bendix probably noisey. I don't know how these pads perform when cold so possibly not the best for a car just driven fairly normally? I've got a set of these waiting for when my current pads die.

Next down would be PBR Performance, Formula Ferodo and Bendix Ultimates. Ferodo would be my pick personally.

Down from that would be your Bendix Advance and Ferodo Excels. Then the Bendix General CT and Ferodo Targets. Again Ferodos would be my pick as I've always found them to be noise free, and found Bendix to be the oposite.

EBC pads fit in there aswell, but I've never used them before so I've got no idea what tehy're like or what they compare to. But a lot of people on here seem to use and like them so I'm sure someone could fill you in.

I have used Ferodo for about 2 years now and am sick of the squeel, so im going to try something else. (Could be my calipers and not the pads, but im willing to try something else)

The Bendix Ultimate pads are excellent, the ones with the blue stripe through them. They were $60 for a set of front pads for me at Supercheap.

Ferodo, in my experience as well as a few friends, are s**t, they are absolute rubbish, they squeel like a b**ch and cos they are so hard they probably f**k up your rotors, not to mention the huge SQUEEEL that sends shudders down pedestrians spines and the fact that they dont actually work as they should. Get used to your face going red also, the squeel is embarrassing

it depends what type of ferodo's you were using. the exels and things like that in the really cheap range are like you said not that good but the DS performance which is the good road pad is excellent and the formula ferodo is about the same as the ds performance only more suited to the track.

EBC greenstuff, they are not a bad pad.

Im currently using benedix advanced, they are quite good for noise and dust. but i think they are a tad hard in the compound.

In my EL I used to use Lucas Green pads and DBA slotted rotors, never any problems re noise. dust however. But that's the price you pay with slotted.

I have the same probs with mine, gets worse when they are warm.

Not bad braking wise, maybe a tad harsh, but noisier than a screamer in bed.

Ill be going to greenstuff very soon.
