I've used Powerstop on both our departed 2012 Forester and on my 2012 F-150. The difference was amazing, versus the stock pads and rotors. I recommend replacing pads and rotors: replace them with a kit - to make sure you get all the necessary bits. The investment is worth it.2014 Forester 2.5i Limited, 57K miles, Most driving is around town
Front pads need to be replaced. Is it important to use Subaru pads or are after market pads, say from Firestone, ok to use?
