Default Replacing front brakes help/advice

I have been having bad vibrations when braking preceded by some brake noise in the past. It hasn't been too long since I had my brake rotors turned and got new pads at the shop and so I think I'm going to do this myself to help save money.

I am planning to replace both front rotors, pads, and bearings on my 09 Ford Ranger XLT RWD with ABS. I was wondering if there was any special parts I would need or just make sure the rotors were for ABS with tone ring. Also I was wondering where I would find factory specs on torque for the nuts.

I will have a friend who has more experience with mechanics helping me out and we both have looked over guides on here and youtube videos. Just didn't want to follow some of the guides and find out my ABS doesn't work or is having problems and prevent any surprises. Thanks for any advice/help!
