Personal opinion here but... Im a fan of going back with oem parts! Ive always heard that having a pad that is too hard and doesnt wear much puts more heat into the rotors causing a warping issue. So ide recommend maybe goto carqurst and ask for the oe part...

Wagner or Bendix makes a good pad.

I swear by Hawk, but I'm not sure if they make a Super Duty pad for your make year.
Marine because.

I put in a set of Wagner, their top of the line pads, whatever they are called...about 3 months ago. They have been right on, great stopping and minimal dust as well, makes cleaning wheels easier.
