Best Brakes for the buck???

So I've been doing research and looking for brakes. I've never installed them myself but I'm having a friend help me so hopefully in the future I will be able to do it on my own. He suggested Raybestos pads. I was also looking at the ford motorcraft pads, but wanted to see what you guys suggest. I don't really take corners at like 100mph or rag my car out, but I do mainly short distance driving involving frequent traffic. Also what tools will I need in order to replace the pads/ measure the rotors.
Thanks Justin.

Sounds like the stock motorcraft replacement pads are right for you

Id go with ford pads or ebc greenstuff.. or hawk pads.. As for rotors i change mine every two years or 20k but i drive hard. For the front pads u will need a C clamp to compress the caliper.. The rear is tricky u will need a brake caliper tool from autozone or autostore the rear pads turn in.

Hawk hp plus was a huge increase in stopping power for autocross, Their street pads would be a big improvement for you.

Yup, but depending on the year you may have to modify it to work... I did with my '01... When I did the brakes on my car I got the Napa cross drilled and slotted rotors for the front, and ceramic pads the whole way around...
