Quick Q: Pad/Caliper Compatibility?

85 300TDT
Is it recommended to use pads that are made by the same manufacturer as the calipers? Does it matter?

ATE(Tevsi), Pagid, PBR, Textar...I dont think all of these guys make calipers (could be wrong).

Just get a pad set made of desired comound and go with it?

Looking at pads...many have different backs that contact the piston...cosmetic? Trivial? Heat sheilds different?

Ok, it wasnt as quick and simple as I'd hoped.

Thanks for your time.
