2004 Focus SVT brake pads.

So I am trying to purchase front brake pads for my 04
Focus SVT. Honestly I just like the stock motorcraft pads, however
Ford online parts store says they have discontinued those kin do pads. Now I just need some suggestions on other pads that are as good as those .

Moderate city driving. Mostly highway driving.







Thanks !!
Mark!!

Anything thats ceramic will do... I just go to Pep Boys or any other auto store and buy the most expensive ceramic pads they have for my svt. They only end up being like $20 more but well worth it, they perform better and last longer. Ceramic all the way... Just my 2c.

Moved to "Brakes, Suspension & Chassis".

The cheapest semi- metalics that fit are fine for everyday driving, actually grip better in occasional use vs. some of the long life ceramics. Longest life & low dust vs. better initial grip/ replace more often.

Everyone has a favorite High Performance Pad, Hawk HPS (high performance street) is often mentioned.
