Thank you mattix. I'm an aircraft mechanic licensed A&P. I do all my own maintenance except where I just don't have the time or expertise. Brakes are a simple job if you're willing to get dirty.
Mattix point six is a little off. It is recommended that the rotors get resurfaced with every changing of the pads........not replaced entirely. There are only two reasons to replace the rotors instead of resurfacing them. Warped out of spec or where resurfacing them makes their thickness out of spec. (stress cracks of course). I've never heard of a manufacturer saying you need to replace both rotor and pad at the same time (save for some higher end sport cars).
If Firestone did not tell you the rotor cannot be resurfaced then yes, you got raped. However the price is right on for the job. Might be a tad low actually considering it was the front (which tend to be about 15% more).
