If you're changing the pads-turn the rotors. It's a simple rule of thumb.

$7 or so each at your local auto parts store. Just take them off, go to the shop, tell them the year, make and model. They will mic the rotors to see if there is enough "meat". Should take no longer than 15 minutes each.

in my area it's retarded to have them turned. Places around here charge $30 to turn a set of two. And even then the rotors are so thin they'll need replacing in less then a year. Better off getting new rotors.

I suggest you take it to the shop in your area that either performs service on police cars or a race shop should direct you in the right position. The speed on the lathe must be slowed down considerably and the cut depth kept to a minimum.
