Brake Pads for 2009 Subaru Forester 2.5X
I have a 2009 Subaru Forester 2.5X and have been looking at getting new brake pads but looking to upgrade from the standard OEM pads. I was wondering if anyone out there has tried any higher performance pads and if anyone out there can recommend any specific brake pads? I was looking at the Raybestos Professional Grade Ceramics and the Hawk Performance Ceramic pads...the price of the Hawk's are about double that of the Raybestos and I am wondering if it is just a brand name thing or if anyone can actually vouch for the Hawks that they are worth paying double for. Also any other suggestions would be great, I am just lost with picking out brake pads since I havent tried enough brands to know.

I'm not familiar with the Raybestos but it sounds sort of generic.
All they did was replace the pads? Just wondering cause usually from what I know you also want to resurface your rotors before putting on new pads. Also do you know if the test was done on a Forester or on another vehicle?
Looks like they used a Subaru after all - a WRX!
Raybestos (circa 1902) is a year older than Ford Motor Company. Raybestos doesn't sound as generic as Ford.
