that can be the problem on superduties when they turn the rotors.....they are then thinner and more prone to warpage. since you say the shake is felt through the steering wheel, your rear rotors are probably fine. i would reccomend replacing the front rotors, cause if you use the brakes hard the thinner rotor has more trouble dissipating the heat.
also.....most shops dont, but hand torque each of your lugnuts.....fords newest spec on the lugnuts on superduties is 150ft lbs. torqueing a wheel actually reduces the chance that a rotor will warp.
