New front brake pads?

Looking to do new pads on my Excursion since owning it. Wanted to know what others use for pads? Not cheap replacements..Was looking at the EBC Green pads. Would like to see some input on this subject.

there are some good pads at part stores, but hawks and ebcs are good. i got performance plus pads. do a ps flush, brake fluid flush, some ss lines and you'd be amazed at how much better a truck will stop.
