Default Brake Pad upgrade

Haven't been around the forums in forever, but I'm back with a question! It's time for new brake pads and I'd like to upgrade from Motorcraft. Any suggestions on something decent and reasonably priced? This will be for everyday driving on the stock V6 rotors and calipers. Thanks!

stop tech, can get them on amazon for around 100 for the set, or you could go into autozone ask them and they will sell you a set for around 40

Stoptech. Be sure to bed the pads properly.

Not sure if you are ABS or non-ABS.

Whatever you do, get ceramic pads. Brake dust sucks!
