As an ex-mechanic I was always told whenever you replace brake pads or shoes the drums or rotors must be resurfaced or cut. I've know plenty of people who do their own brakes and don't resurface unless it looked out (uneven surface) , and have had no problems with vibration or squeaks. The correct and proper is to always resurface, that's why all professional shops and dealers will always sell the brake job price with including the cost to resurface. They bascially don't want you to come back with a vibration or squeak and have to do the job over again. Remember when the rotors are removed for cutting, you will also get a lubrication on the wheel berrings if your vehicle has them. The majority of newer vehicles have the rotors slip off with no need for wheel berring lubrication. That my 2 cents on the resurfacing.
