F350 SRW to 450/550 Brakes

Rotors warped and need new pads. I am on 38's right now so could definitely use some extra stopping power and was wondering if anyone has actually converted to 450/550 rotors and calipers and if so do they require swapping knuckles as well? What would be more cost effective, F450 brake swap or Powerslot Cyro'd Rotors and Hawk pads?
Also I have 20" wheels so bigger rotors/calipers shouldn't be an issue.

'02 F-350 SRW 4x4, 4 inch RC lift stacked on 2.5in mini-pack up front, PHP Hydra, Riffraff 6637 kit, Magnaflow 5-inch turbo back, 20x9 BMF Novakane, 38x13.50 Toyo MT, 2 inch Motorsport-Tech steel spacers, etc.

I'm happy with my Hawk HPS pads. There are some dust but braking power is really good.
