Default 2005 GT Convertible Brakes ???

Hi all. I'm new out on this thread and thought it would be a great place to research enhancements to my (relatively) new vehicle. I bought an 05 GT Convertible (HO Turbo) in Oct 09 and it's run great sans the lower then expected gas mileage. Now it appears my brake calipers are hanging, specifically the passenger front. It seems to be periodic and random. To be on the safe side I'm going to replace both front calipers, rotors, and pads. I'm thinking diamond or dimpled and slotted rotors with ceramic pads but not sure if there is an upgraded caliper or which caliper would be best. Any thoughts? While I'm there, should I do wheel bearings as well? I plan on doing at least rear rotors and pads for appearance, should I do calipers and bearings back there as well? Any monsters hiding in this type of repair?
I appreciate any advice and feedback!
