Brake pad recommendations

Starting to get squeeky sound. Any suggestions?

So far the EBC Greenstuff pads have been awesome. Lots of dust, but the performance is very good in mixed street, de, and autox use. Wear is very acceptable for the level of performance. Running them with cross-drilled zimmermans.

Do NOT buy the orange stuff. It is so embarrassing driving a Porsche that sounds like a bus when braking.

My vote for greenstuff too...

Are the pads actually worn enough to require replacement? Often a rebedding can restore quiet operation. If you do want new pads, what is your application and driving style -- i.e. around town, daily driver, autocross, DE, ...? I assume from your question that brake squeal is a deal breaker. How do you feel about brake dust? There are a bazillion threads on this forum about brake pads, and just like tires, everyone has an favorite.
