What to Buy?? Need brakes and Rotors

Ok guys and gals,
had my brakes done about 60,000 miles ago and I am wore pretty thin, time to replace again. Last go round had it at the dealership and they replaced with OEM pads, but told me the rotors were frozen and would break when they tore them off, so when I had the brakes done next time to plan on replacing.

What should I buy? Let Ford replace with OEM parts or are there some quality aftermarket rotors and pads that I should buy.

'06 F250 CCSB Icon Leveling kit. Cooper Discoverer ATR 315's on stock 17s. 108k or so on the odometer.

hope that will help. Thanks for the input in advance. Also thinking about getting a steering stabilizer, if anyone can point me in a good direction there. Thanks.

I went through my ex and put rotors & calipers on all 4 corners, but also went with ceramic pads. There was quite a bit of difference from before and after. I recently also switched out all the rubber hoses with the braided SS Russel brake lines. That made about the same difference on top of the ceramic pads. I think next time if I planned ahead i'd do slotted rotors too, but going through everything wasn't exactly a plan.

Price wise...I'd stick with OEM rotors. They're quality rotors that hold up to the task of our SuperDuty's.

I would go with OEM brakes, i tow a lot an OEM seem to hold up the best. I have a Procomp Single Steering Stabilizer, made a lot of different, well worth the money. i bought mine from River City Diesel, i can post a pic of the stabilizer if you want.

Hawk pads and stock rotors should do you.
