what kind of brakes do you want, performance, quiet brakes, no dust, cheap, expensive?

axxis pads are decent mix of things. If you want a little more performance the ultimates would be the way to go. If not, get the deluxe pads.

If price is no object and they have pads for your car, get a set of Endless pads.......they'll set ya back about 200 bucks a set though ;)

I just ordered a set of Axxis Deluxe plus pads, I havn't received them yet as they werent in stock but the guy is friendly and responds quickly to emails. I ordered from www.precisionbrakescompany.com. Unfortunately they only carry two of the four axxis pads (Deluxe plus and metal master). They also carry stainless steel brake lines ($60 for a pair and $110 for two pairs)
I also found another place www.zeckhausen.com they carry the metal masters however I havn't used them.

I hope this helps.
Once I have my pads installed I'll make a post.

primitive racing carries axxis www.get-primitive.com

Stoptech carries a bunch of stuff, call them if you don't see your application on their site. www.stoptech.com

Any semi-metallic pad has a tendancy to make some noise on occasion. It's nothing I would consider real annoying.

Carbotech has some good pads as well, and carries axxis

I don't think they'd have an application in their bobcat series pads, but if they did, I've heard a lot of good things about them.

I like Albany Semi-m from Auto Zone 24.99 a set. They may be better pads out their but these hold up well on a mail Rt. with close to 400 stops each day. In my opinion they are much better than O.E.M. and I have used plenty of both. I think these pads are really Bendix pads but can't say for sure.

I have a set of Raybestos pads sitting in my garage. I have a stripped bolt on my caliper, so once I have some time (which will probably be never :x ) I will take that bolt out and change the pads, since my driver front is squealing when it's not applied.

Anyway, has anyone had good/bad experiences with Raybestos? I've heard Subaru OEM's kinda suck...
