Depends on if you have 4 wheel disc brakes. If ya do.. its rotors, if not its drums. I would assume, however, since every cutlass I;ve owned has had 4 wheel disc brakes, that yours would too. Look through the holes in your wheels, and see if there's a metal disc or not, or if you want to be sure, see if it looks the same as the front.

What does it mean to machine the brake rotors and drum brakes?

The rotors in disc brakes and the drums are what the pads and shoes rub against to stop a car. With use, the surface can get grooves in it or a build up of rust scale; reducing the braking efficiency. To machine the rotors and drums, they are put on a lathe that cuts a new smooth surface on the face of each. Depending on wear, any given rotor or drum can probably be turned 2 or 3 times before needing to be replaced.

Auto Zone will generally keep in stock brakes, rotors and drums for most American made vehicles. Brake shoes purchased at Auto Zone are also guaranteed for as long as you own your vehicle.
