best brake pads for day to day driveing ?

ok , I'm now interested in knowing what are going to be the best brake pads for my four wheel disc f150 ? .. and where do I get em ?

keeping in mind my driveing can be a little sporty at times and I'm about to install my hotchkis swaybars and hotchkis / bilstein shocks and finally get around to lowering the back end

my rotors are pretty freash I had the brakes done with 4 new rotors not so long ago - the current pads are ford

new brake lines are in order to as mine are o-e and getting old
- stainless hoses are a goal too if the cash flow allows at the time

* added pics of pretty new suspension bits to the album - front springs and ground force shocks went in a couple of years ago

I think my front passenger shock got cooked though when the caliper seized and my truck got close to burning down from the heat - the abs sensor and lead melted right outta it
... mmm but it could be the tire - the first 3 buckets full of water I threw at it instantly evaporated
I have a pretty good shake from that front corner at highway speeds

Can't help with any brake pad recommendations, always run the Ford parts myself, but nice looking suspension gear, congrats !!

thanks
and thanks again for the pic transfer lol
I still need to work out how that works here

7K in vet bills last year for the "rescued" dog kinda slowed me down - he needed MAJOR rear suspension work
it kinda suckered me in
the first leg needed fixing , vet said 25% chance he'd have the issue with the other one - which held up till just after the first one healed

I bet someone took him to the shelter thinking they would fix him up but no , they just passed it on ...
T-G for visa and those "low" monthly instalments

oh well a supercab ain't much good without a copilot

On the Lightning I went with Hawk PC pads and rears I stuck with Motorcraft. Fronts have less brake dust than factory and stop very well. No cracking or anything in almost 2 years. Have heard great things about the HPS line as well.

If you tow or haul you should check out the Motorcraft Super Duty line, they work great on the FX4.

The last few brake jobs I've done, I went with ultra premium pads and rotors from Napa. Nice stuff. I'll be using them on my dually when it's time.
