I have Duralast gold on for the front end, I've had them for almost a year and all they do is squeak after a bit of driving! The rest of the braking system has been checked out, rotors are good, pistons are good, everything has a good amount of grease, old brakes didn't squeak but these things just don't stop!

I know Akebono doesn't make pads for the size needed on the 2.8, anyone recommend anything?

Looked for them but can't exactly narrow it down, Some say Hella Pagid, one part number I found specifies 06 only but 314mm rotor (brake code AC). Some older thread here said the Hella Pagid pads also squeak, same for EBC Red Stuff.

I'll probably try them out since they're ceramic. Thanks for the tip.

Wanted to update this thread, got the EBC reds and some grease, I'm a little past the break-in period and these things are SILENT. FINALLY. Thanks for the recommendation. Probably gonna throw these on my 04 Aero or Akebono.

Duralast golds seem MUCH harder in comparison and can cause vibration.
