Wagner Pads if they have them around you. I put them on my 05 Ranger and I love them. They are not the worlds best pads by any means, but they were cleaner than the motorcraft ones, and better than the NAPA pads. They are sold at advanced auto parts around New York here. They come with a "Lifetime Warantee". I trailer alot, and I go though pads with local driving alot since I tow a 7x14 enclosed dual axle trailer full of my tools for contracting including supplies. They stop me fine. I hope this helps.
