Best break pads and rotors for Excursions?

What do you guys recommend for front break pads and rotors? Thanks

2000 Ford Excursion 7.3, AIS intake, 4" MBRP exhaust, PHP Hydra Chip, Bilsteins (5100 in front and 4600 in back) and x code front springs to be added when I can find the time to put them in.

im using yellow stuff pads and stock rotors. before that i had ceramic pads from Orielly and they work really well until i started towing the trailer with the truck on it and the 3 horse trailer.

Define "best brakes"

Brakes that last longer with low dust don't do as good a job of braking, especially when towing

Brakes that wear and dust will generally do a much better job at braking.

I've been liking napa's severe duty lately. Low noise and dust while still stopping ok.

I guess I'll define best as good performance and long life. Not really worried about dust. I don't really tow anything but a dual ATV trailer and a bass boat and generally I'm light on the breaks, I drive like an old lady for the most part.

2000 Ford Excursion 7.3, AIS intake, 4" MBRP exhaust, PHP Hydra Chip, Bilsteins (5100 in front and 4600 in back) and x code front springs to be added when I can find the time to put them in.
