I just did mine. The pads (wagner thermo quiet ceramic) were $58, and they were unable to machine the rotors, so I went and got the NAPA ones for $104. Super simple to change everything out. If you can change oil, you can change pads and rotors.
Basically unbold everything, pull the old pads out, put lube on the back of the new pads, use a C-clamp to push the caliper back, slide the pads into the calipers and you're done.
For the rotors, lots of WD-40 or PB blaster, and a hammer (uses a wood block if you plan on having the rotors turned). pull the old ones off, a little anti-seize between the rotor and the hub and slide the new ones on.
Personally, unless the rear brakes are causing problems, I would touch them.
