Brake Rotors and Pads

I'm pretty sure I've asked this in the past, but I can't seem to find it now that I actually need it. What is a good brake rotor and pad set that is fairly cheap?

Brakes

I put Powerslot rotors and Hawk pads on my truck when I bought it. They solved my warped rotor(s) problem (mainly the rears), and they stop my lifted truck well. They still leave room for improvement when pulling my 25' tritoon.

They were slightly more expensive that Autozones stock crappy parts but well worth it. I would rather spend a little more to be able to stop better and prevent an accident or miss a child who might run out into the road.

Was that for all 4 corners? And where did you get them from?
