I am certainly no expert but I would do both at the same time as you are already there anyway. Worse thing would be to have to come back in a year to do the rotors because now they are too thin.

I don't think that's too bad as long as you have some money in the bank as a cushion for repairs. Maybe like 1500. Also helps if you have a second car on case this one isn't running for some reason. ...

Likely rusted on. Consider using a brake rotor puller. I bought one from OTC tools. You can probably rent something from advance or autozone. Big problem in areas that use salt in the winter.

Ignition coils tend to wear out by that milage. Not a bad idea to change them all out at once so your not back in there in a few months.
