motorcraft pads/rotors

I am looking to replace my front brakes and I will have my rotors checked for wear with a micrometer to see how the measure.

My question is should I go with the regular duty pads motorcraft part# br-1069 or the super duty/severe duty pads part# brsd-1069 ?

I don't haul or tow anything with my truck, only once in a blue moon, but the super duty pads may be needed on a super duty truck.

Are the motorcraft rotors the OEM rotors? Part# BRR-129?
Should those be fine?

My truck is an 06 with 86k miles.

I had my rotors turned as there was plenty of material left at 80k mi.

I didn't buy the Motorcraft pads when I did mine. I bought the Napa severe duty pads and the only difference that I can notice from stock is that they put more dust on my front wheels.

Stick with Motorcraft/OEM parts. Anything else your risking damaging your braking system components.

I bought the super duty pads from my ford dealer and paid I think like $125 for them. The Guy I know at the dealer usually tells me up front what is good and is not for my PSD even if he doesn't make a sale. He said they have had good luck out of these. I've put about 5,000 miles on mine and seem to be doing a good job with little dust. No more then my f150 did. I got rotors turned, pads and install for about $250 from a local guy. Price the dealer at around $400 plus.
