Only if they are worn. It's the rotors that warp, pads wear down evenly.
I am having good results with Centric Cryo treated rotors from Tire Rack.
I am using Hawk HPS pads. Much less dust and brake slightly firmer than OEMs. A little less bite on soft touching, but once they engage they are solid. Silent too.

It's good to do a brake fluid flush at 60k miles if you have not done so already. Has nothing to do with warped rotors though.
