time for new brake pads...

Been noticing my brakes squeal last couple days, wanna change the front pads soon, possibly this weekend. I'm on a tight budget right now so I'm gonna have to pick up some from Advance... Any particular brand/material I should try to get from there? Can't afford them fancy high dollar pads lol thanks in advance guys!

Thanks, Keith.

Do I need to get the "ceramic" or "semi-metallic" pads?

How are your rotors? I did mine at 74000 and rotors were so nice I just put good Raybestos pads on and didn't touch the rotors. Cheap, like $58 for front pads. Drove it easy for a couple days and they seated in good, no regrets.

Not sure on the rotors' condition. Hoping they're fine since that'd be more money I don't really have right now lol. The truck doesn't shudder or wobble when braking so I'm hoping they're good.

Got the front pads changed out, rotors are smooth with no grooves or anything. Checked the back and those are gonna need pads AND rotors, they're grooved

The backs will have to wait until I can afford the parts... that should be okay right?
