Default Brake Parts - Help

I am looking for new brakes for my girlfriend's 04 9-3 Linear Sedan. I found a couple places on line, but am looking for the best bang for the buck. What rotors and where from? What about pads - prefer lower dust? The fronts are 285mm, rears are solid (272mm I think). I typically replace the rotors when I do brakes due to the convience, but the Saab rotors are more expensive than my usual trucks. Is it worth replacing them or should I just turn them - assuming their is enough left? The car has about 35k miles (mainly stop and go) if it makes a difference. All the pads are not completely shot, but I am getting a grinding from the front right when stopping from slow speeds - I am assuming this is a failed pad. Sound right to you? I greatly appreciate your help and look forward to returning the favor after I learn a little more about these cars.

Any ceramic pads should be ok as far as dust goes...get the rotors turned, no reason to shell out that much cash
