What are the best brake pads, and where should I get them? I have the Carbomet pads on the front now, and they're starting to squeal. Should I just go with some Bendix or another brand which I can pick up at the local auto parts store? My brakes need all the help I can get, so better pads are worth my money. I would like to hear about experiences with a variety of brands before I make my purchase. Thanks.
