    I use to work at a parts store and the semi-metaics are all very close to being the same from what I was told. Some of the higher priced Raybestas(NASCAR on the box) and even the Rancho flavor semi-metalics are said to last the longer.

    Rock ON!
     
  3. I use the carbon mettalic and they seem to last longer and brake better. More money though, they are like OEM pads !

    I've had a problem with the front brakes squeeking all the time. I got the softest pads available. My pads were from Carquest, and I think they were Reybestes also. If you get the semi-metalic's (organic) try and get ones with a lifetime warr. They wear out pretty quick.

    Performance Friction Pads at Autozone There around $25.00 but worth it. They are a carbon metalic pad. My blazer never stopped so good and there lifetime to. I use them on all my vehicals and suggest them to everyone I know. As you might have guessed I worked there also.

    On my last brake job, I decided to spring for the more expensive Raybestos Carbon Metalic pads. They work great, and havn't given a squeak or sign of wear in 2000 miles. My mechanic says that he has had a set on his tow rig for 30,000 miles and they are still going strong.
