Well, I was going to suggest getting on tirerack and ordering the hawk hp pads for the front of an 80 series. When I bought mine a couple of weeks ago, they were on sale for $39. Now it looks like they are special order and back at the regular price of $100 or so.
With the 100 Series pads they are installed in the 80 Series calipers without the shims. Also, it is highly recomended to install them on new 80 Series rotors or newly turned rotors as they have a larger surface area and can create wear and braking issues if this is not done.
