I need new brake pads and rotors. Help!

My brakes have been squeaking like crazy, and I had a free tire rotation today, so I had them do a brake inspection while they were at it. They let me look it over myself, and my front pads and rotors are completely shot. They quoted me at $320 to replace everything. I figured I'd do it myself for a lot cheaper.

So now my question is, what pads and rotors do I go with? I am thinking the Wagner Ceramic Thermo-Quiets for the pads. I don't know a single thing about rotors though. So what do you all recommend?

I have Wagner Thermoquiet Ceramic pads and slotted rotors I got off Rockauto. They have worked awesome so far, which is about 5 years or so

I don't remember the size but Rockauto won't let you get the wrong one if you select your truck info correctly
