I was told I should turn my front rotor and box sand the brake pad... what grit sand paper should I use (i am not sure if they are ceramic)? I can get my rotors turned at the local Auto zone/O'Riely.

Most times the cost of machining or turning the rotors is close to getting new ones. Plus they will warp faster now that they are thinner. I recommend getting new rotors and pads and installing them yourself.
