My brother swears by these cryogenically treated rotors and this will be the next set I use. I put a set of oem rotors and new bearings when I did my front brakes two years and 15,000 miles ago. Warped again. Next job I do, I will use these.

I've heard the same negative about drilled rotors, or drilled and slotted rotors. I have not experienced negatives with slotted rotors. I had about 100K on a set of Cryo'ed power slot rotors on all 4 corners. Powerslot Part Number: 126.65086CSL-CSR

The last set I got for my Excursion were possibly Power Stop brand, but looks identical.

Ford does not recommend turning rotors, and neither does Jack (FMTRVT), TDS's resident brake expert.

If you're getting brake pulsation, it means there's probably hard spots which can't be turned out. They come back soon after any attempt at turning.
When I redid my rear brakes, I went with Ford Rotors (which happened to say "Made in China" on the boxes) but they're doing well. On the rears, I went with Ford Loaded calipers. I recently replaced the front pads with Ford "SuperDuty". My front rotors were in good shape with minor scoring and I just reused them without turning.
On slotted and/or drilled rotors, you're losing contact area. It's equivalent to putting smaller pads on.

It seems about 90% of the threads with drilled and slotted rotors, they all are cracked and warped.

I had the slotted and cryro rotors on one of my trucks. They worked great!! and I never had a issue with them. For the price and hassle of trying to get them turned I usually buy NAPA best or Ford rotors.

What pads do you all recommend? Are the ones from NAPA any good?

I never reuse the calipers. I used to back in the day but had an issue with the puck sticking after being pushed back in and burning up pads and calipers. I always replace the calipers with new or rebuilt, make the job simple and you get a good brake fluid flush at the same time.
