REAR BRAKE ALIGNMENT?

2005 Toyota Matrix

Brakes problem
2005 Toyota Matrix 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 77k miles

Our dealer has recommended replacing the front brake pads. They are currently at about 20%. The rear brake pads are in good shape, but they are telling me that I need to have the rear brakes " aligned". I've never heard of that before. Is that really necessary or is this just another unnecessary " add-on" cost?

Thank you for your response.

He may want to align the rear wheels, if they are wearing abnormally, then that may be OK. Otherwise save your money.
