Hawk HPS or EBC Green are two very good options.

The truth is the stock pads are actually very good.

Trog...how do you like your AEM big brake kit with TRD pads? do they actually improve anything? or still the same?

The problem I found with stock pads and rotors is that the stock pads fade like a mofo after a series of hard stops. Initial bite is excellent though.
