    How much it should cost, depends on what shape the rotors are in. If you have waited until the brakes are grinding, the rotors might not be reusable. Replacing rotors can in some instances double the cost of the brake job. Using RepairPal's estimator should give you a ballpark figure on what pads and rotors should cost to replace.
