Best place to buy OEM front brake pads

Where is the best place to buy a set of front brake pads for my 2004 Tacoma doublecab PreRunner? I put a $15.00 set on a little over a year ago, and they are squeelin like a pig. It's to the point that I am hearing squeeling when my foot isn't even on the brake pedal. It's not a belt, I have ruled that out. I have tried to give my brake assemblies a thorough cleaning to get rid of brake dust, and that was a waste of 2 cans of brake cleaner. Where can I get the OEM pads other than my local dealership? I am also going to get the glazing taken off the rotors at a local auto parts store when I do this. Are these easy to get off the truck?

Thanks
