Time for new brakes! Going with cross drilled and slotted

Its time to put new brakes on the truck and I just ordered ebc yellow stuff pads. I want to get new rotors and was wondering what a good brand of aftermarket rotors were. Im kinda leary about buying rotors off of ebay cause I do tow some and dont want some cheap rotors that warp or crack after a week of use. So I was wondering if any of you guys or girls had tried a aftermarket brake rotor and liked it. Also for you do it yourselfers how hard are the brakes to do on this truck. Ive always changed my brakes and its easy on the dodge and chevy trucks but this is my first ford. Is there any special tools that I will need. Thanks in advance guys!

Cryo'd Powerslots work well with Hawk LTS pads. (My set up.) I was told to avoid any cross drilled rotors as they are known to crack on our trucks. Repeating what I heard.

Factory rotors will crack -- I wouldn't be punching holes in them by cross drilling or whatever.

Thanks guys thats exactly what I needed to know. So now cross drilled rotors! Who can I get a good set of cryod rotors from? Also what do yall think about the ebc yellow stuff rotors?

This question is to Cobbs or any other vendor on here that might have a steering stabazlier. I saw the steering stabalizer on your site (cobbs) How much better is the bilstein vs the pro comp one?

I just read a bunch of reviews and it seems that HAWK pads are the best pads. I think the yellow stuff pads might bite harder but have alot more brake dust. I just ordered the hawk cryo rotors and im going to try them with the yello stuff pads.

I Also Heard That The Hawk Pads Were Nice, But Have Not Tried Them Personally! The Only Reason I Used The EBC Green Pads Was Because I Had 22" Fooses On The Impala Ant Thought That Seeing The Green Pads Behind The Wheel's Would Look Cool! Lets Just Say Look's Ain't Worth The Fact That I Had To Wash Just My Wheels About Every Other Day!
