if you were to buy the parts and do it yourself the pads would run about 35-45 for front and about same for rear. I think I paid around 60 each for rotors.
A good shop has to make money both off of parts and labor to cover overhead etc. this is a cake job with a lot of built in profit. If you are not doing it yourself shop around at good reputable shops. If you don't have warped rotrs then you may get by without replacing them But if you are questioning it go ahead and get some new. it will give you better service then having them turned down in most cases.
