Any shop that does brakes. Rear rotors are cheap. You could probably pick up 2 new ones for under $60.

I'm a manager at my local Autozone and I never recommend having rotors turned! The metal becomes thin and will warp the moment your brake hard on them. And in some cases shops remove too much material and I've seen several rotors get hot, become brittle and shatter. A shop will charge you $20+ per rotor to turn them and for just a tad more you can get a nice brand new set

Thanks for the info! I'll def be picking up some new rotors instead of resurfacing the old ones, don't want any warping problems

No problem! Also be sure to get a rotor that will work with well with your selected pads. For example, ceramic pads should be used with rotors created for ceramic pads due to the ceramic being much more aggressive. If you use a ceramic pad on a normal rotor it will wear your new rotor out 3x faster

I get mine at a local guy on the DL....but even Rock auto has some decent prices.

Raybestos front and rear ceramic rotors, front and rear ceramic pads, moog inner tie rod, and a new break caliper for rear drivers side for $100
