Depends if it has 30,000 or 200,000 miles. Generally, you'll wants to wire brush any areas that the pads touch and lubricate thoses areas with high temperature caliper grease. Be sure the slide pins are clean and well lubed also or replace them.

You do not need a torque wrench when replacing brake pads and rotors. Some of the tools needed to change the rotors and pads are the c-clamp, sockets, wrench, grease, and brake cleaner.

Replacing brake rotors on a Chrysler Pacifica will vary in price depend on the labor cost. The price should be around $150 dollars.

depends on the condition od the pads. If worn or have groves etc from the rotors then replace.

The majority of the stopping power is performed by the front rotors. I would start by replacing them.

Don't know about calipers - have never needed to replace those. If you are replacing, yourself, the parts (pads and rotors) will cost anywhere from $120 up for front pads and rotors (pads $20 up for a full set, rotors $45 up each). If you check the web, there are some sites where you can order an entire set (pads and rotors) for around $90.
