Hello there, from my best knwoledged, CV, Constant Velocity joints are nothing to do with disc rotor warp damages. The warp damages came from the overheated brake or *a very high heat temperature drop suddenly during braking. (*usually a sudden heavy rainning occur)

that is all i can help.

It won't warb the rotors, but a torn outer CV boot can sometimes result in symptoms (e.g. wheel shuddering when braking) very similar to a warped rotor. When the CV boot is torn, axle grease is flung out all over the place, and if any of it gets on the rotor you can get a stick-slip action in the brakes that feels like a warped rotor. One way to tell the difference is to drive very slowly and gently apply the brakes. If you still feel the pulsation with the brakes only barely engaged, you have a warped rotor. If the pulsation doesn't appear until you reach higher speeds and/or brake harder, you should check the condition of your CV boots before immediately buying new rotors. As for curing it, you need to replace the boot, clean the rotor, and probably also change the brake pads.

Why did the disc brake on the front driver's side wear out a lot faster than the disc brake on the front passenger's side?

sounds like you have a stuck brake caliper on the dirvers side. You may have a bad rotor on that side. A warped rotor would cause the disc brakes to wear out quicker. A new rotor is usually cheaper than getting one turned; usually between $20 to $40. Your caliper is sticking pushing the brake pad out. Look to see if brake hose is twisted. Had samething drove me nuts changing things saw the hose took the twist out. Have not had the same problem since, been 8 months.Bill

How do you tell the difference between Rear Drum Brake and Rear Disc Brake?

If you can see the brake caliper and rotor, then it has disc brakes. If all you see is a large drum then it has shoes. If you can see the front brakes thru the wheels, you can identify disc brakes. If the rear look like the front, then they are also disc brakes. However if the rear look much different, then chances are they are drum.
