Most any auto parts store will have ceramic pads, possibly in a couple of
different brands. Ceramic pads generally are quieter and usually have less
brake dust. See Raybestos ceramic pads here:
As a matter of fact, I put ceramic pads on my wife's 98 Buick yesterday.
The ceramics I chose ran about $40 (front axle set), no core. It took about
an hour to get the old ones off, the guide pins cleaned and relubed, and
everything back together and torqued into place. (An easy hour...wasn't
trying to rush anything.)
On her car, the guide bolts carried 63 foot pounds torque.
Lug nuts 100 foot pounds.
