Best rotors and disks

I have a 99 f-350 and need new rotors. What are the best to avoid the normal warpage and where is the best place to find them?

Cryo'd powerslot rotors and Hawk pads.

A lot of guys like the Hawk LTS pad. However, I run the Hawk SuperDuty pad and like it very well.

Is yours an early 99 or a 99.5, I believe they are different.
I went through two sets of stock rotors (they kept warping) before I went with drilled and slotted rotors from irotors. They have a website but I bought mine from their eBay store, all 4 for around $300 shipped. That was about two or more years ago and I love them. No more warping and they stop great with little to no fade. I highly recommend them and the cost is close to the same as cheap stock rotors.

I have the Cyro'd Powerslots and Hawks LTS pads. Just for your info Hawks doesn't recomend the Superduty pads on a stock truck. They don't build up enough heat to properly seat the pads. They are for race trucks or trucks that carry a lot of weight like welding trucks etc... I was sold these and developed a really bad pull to one side. After changing the calipers and hoses I realized it was the pads. I called Hawks and they made me promise not to drive the truck until the correct pads could be installed, they over nighted me the LTS pads and problem was cured. They said I should have never of been sold those pads for a stock truck application. Don't want you to go through what I did. Stay away from DPPI for this reason and others, Tire Rack.com has good prices on them.
