Best Brake Pads?

My 2001 is on it's original brake pads. I want to get some pads for the inevitable brake job coming up soon.
I believe in getting the best possible parts for brakes. If I went to a FORD dealer and asked for OEM pads, what brand and model would that be (so I can buy then for less somewhere else)? And would those be the best? I am impressed with the mileage these have served so far (45,000). Thanks-Brian

Re: Best Brake Pads?

Used to get Raybestos but I haven't seen them around in a while, Duralast and Wearever seem to hold up fairly well with normal driving, just go with the better ceramics.

Ever notice that there's so many high performance parts available for GM products?

Did you ever think that maybe they NEED them?
