    Yes, the wear sensor is only on the front.

    Discs wear down pretty much the same rate as pads these days, also it quite often works out cheaper to buy a disc/pad kit than the items separately.

    You'll also need a new wear sensor as they're not re-usable once they've been activated.

    See how big the lip is on the disc, if its hardly noticeable you'll get another set of pads out of them but if its a decent lip change the discs.
