Why do I have to put new brake pads on if I'm replacing the rotors
2002 FORD FOCUS

They have worn to rotor surface if reason to replace is vibration and squeal then new pads are a MUST

Yes, I would replace them, the old rotor may have caused the pads to wear unevenly or have grooves wore into the pads. Your decision.
