Any suggestions for brake pads for a 98 catera? i've heard lots of good things about ceramic pads...very firm stopping and eliminate brake dust.

I used the EBC green stuff pads. They improved stopping. It really was like night or day. Pepboys can order them for you and they are about the same as regular pads for price. I think I paid 69.99. I've had them for over a year of agressive driving. They also reduce brake dust. I also added the EBC Slotted and Dimpled front rotors. They cost me $160 for the pair.
