Brake linings is actually the portion of a brake pad(disc brakes) or brake shoe( drum brakes) that comes in contact with the rotor or drum as applicable.
What the person meant, I believe, is that the brake linings are worn so the pads should be replaced.
If you do get them to do the rear brakes, I'd be curious to know what they charge now-a-days to resurface rotors.?
However, almost guaranteed that you would save a lot of money to get someone you know or some local mechanic to do it for you. If the rotors are in fact in need of resurfacing, the cost of new ones should be compared and considered.
