Just came across this the other day -> Braking system maintenance/upgrades for 99-07 trucks

Also, these rotors don't warp. Most rotors don't warp. In the Vast majority of cases, what's happening is that the rotors surface has inconsistencies in it. So, what you feel as a Pulse, is actually Slip & Grab. Cutting a new surface fixes it so people have always assumed it was a "truing" action that was the cure. Rotors have gotten so cheap (I have No Idea why ) that it no longer makes sense to cut them though.

What ever you do be sure to Bed the new pads to the rotors, re-bedding might even help now. Google "Bedding Brakes" if you're not familiar with the process...

To be honest OP. Stock rotors and whatever pads your local parts store sells as 'premium' and you'll be happy

How would a quick blast in a glass bead cabinet and a new set of pads work? That should restore the surface for cheap.
