Brake pad options for factory Ford brakes

I'm starting to hear my front brakes squeal, and though I haven't checked them yet, it is starting to make me think about brake pad options. I know there are a lot of aftermarket brakes pads, and I was wondering if anyone has tried any of them out?

Now that I think about it, does SMB use the factory Ford brake pads?

Herb, I got the brakeman upgrade and it made a big difference IMO. Most significant is the brake fade while towing my SMB trailer. But it consists of different discs and pads, that dissapate heat better (about 1k installed by SMB). Heber told me that Ford pads/discs could be used to get home if I was in a pinch and something failed. Kind of high priced. If I remember, you can get pads only from brakeman. I was told that these pads last longer but really don't affect stopping. I want to look at converting to stock Ford 550 setup if possible, but 8 rims and tires are keeping me where I'm at now even if it's possible.
