Go to Ford for some orignial ones. They may cost more money than aftermarket ones, but they may also have a heavy duty version. I have been a fleet mechanic for a towing company for some time now and we only have Ford trucks. We never machine rtors, and always use original Ford ones.

Rotors need to be changed when they have been resurfaced too many times or becomed too warped to be turned and leave them thick enough for safety.
