Car is stock. FF Semi-Metalic Beck/Arnley fade like crazy.

I don't think EBC DP2762 will fit... or will they?

Any other options??? (pads only, don't want to give up stock 12in wheels)

Go with the Monroe ceramics off Rockauto they're the cheapest not semi metallic pads I found I'm currently doing brakes and bearings on 2 of my cars. Ceramics don't chew up your rotors as much and if installed right make less noise with longer life. OE is semi metallic metal on metal makes a good amount of heat. Don't forget to pump fresh fluid through and inspect your braking system if you're getting enough heat to cause fade the fluid in your calipers may not be looking too pretty. Check your wheel bearings as well an overheating hub can generate enough heat to cause fade but often will make noise before that point is reached.
I haven't forgot about the trans dipstck just have had my hands full.
