Brake Setups for an 06 6.0

So I've got a 2006 250 extended cab short bed 4x4. I've got 43,000 miles and my front brakes are SHOT. The passenger side caliper is/has been seized so the pads wore out very quickly. It was amazing the Ford dealership said nothing wrong (even though I brought it in several times and told them to check the brakes) then at 37,xxx miles they tell me I will need brakes soon. Thanks guys! haha

Anyways, looking to front pads/rotors/calipers. What are my options and what prices am I looking at. I think I may want to upgrade the rotors and pads to something a little better than OEM, but its all cost driven. I cant afford to spend a fortune since I need tires now too. It'd be nice to stop this 8000lb beast a little faster though when I need to. I was looking at Hawk pads and EBC pads, anyone have any input, or places to get this stuff? Any suggestions at all would be greatly appreciated! Thanks guys and gals!
