What front break disk do You have? Stock or aftermarket?
If it's stock my option would be to go for a little softer pads to prolong lifetime of beak disk in front and especially rear drum.
Hard to say how hard are these pads in real life.
Easily Depends on someones style of driving and combination of break parts used.
If the pads are too hard they will not wear off. They will eat off the break disk faster. Therefore it will be much cheaper to change pads more often than disk or even whole rear wheel which includes the drum.
I found my combination. I'm using an aftermarket TRW MST210 break disk in combination with ordinary TRW 1057STD break pads on the front. And still have factory shoes on rear.
