Default 2002 SSEi - needs front pads

So, my gf is in the states with my car. Says the front left is squealing, so I'm thinking new pads.

I was trying to navigate Rock Auto to pick out some ceramics, and I can't figure out that site at all.

All I want is the best set of ceramics I can buy that aren't Chinese. I'm assuming that'd be AC Delcos.

Was looking at those too.

So who is better? I know AC Delco is OEM.

never used either.

i used to only buy delco stuff but the last ten years or so the stuff i get ends up being the same as the cheap stuff so i dont buy any delco stuff any more.

i have heard others say wagners are good and looks like the set you need is on clearance right now

These will be in a set right? I don't have to buy two so I have both sides?

If your putting a good set of ceramic pads, you may want to look at new rotors to match. R1concepts rock. And that set up will rip your face off.

Yeah, these look to be good ceramics. Doesn't answer my question though. Are these sold in sets (enough to do the job) or pairs (one for each side)?
