Stock blades are notoriously poor, so you should definitely switch that blade to a better quality one. Whether or not to use your Freud full kerf rip blade depends on which specific blade it is (LM71, LM72, LM74), the thickness of the wood, and what your cutting objectives are. Most bulk ripping blades won’t leave a “very clean cut” (tearout shouldn’t be an issue when ripping), though they can be “glue ready” right off the saw. I’d think a 3/32” thin kerf blade would be easier on your saw’s motor.
