you might have a froze caliper piston, he is asking for all of that because whenever you change a caliper out you dont just want to change the caliper but do the brake job while you are there because more than likely the rest of your brakes are worn as well and if you just do the caliper you will damage you brakes more because of uneven wear sometimes a caliper gets locked up from extreme wear on pads past limit, he is actually saving you money in the long run. now as far as price it doesnt take much to change a caliper out, if you pinch off the line hooking directly to that caliper and unhook it along with the two bolts, all you have to do is put the new one in and pump the brakes back up and then bleed them to ensure all air is out of brake system, and depending on make and model, bleed them starting from furthest wheel from master cylinder....in other words you should be able to find a better price cheaper considering they want to replace the rotors instead of resurfacing them so that is alot less time to just replace them it is merily just parts changing, I hope i could help

Both of these guys have the right idea, a brake check wont reveal an issue with the rotors like this, you may have a grove worn in from having to suddenly stop at a high speed that you dont hear/feel when going fast. A resurface of your rotors should fix the problem. Even if they look fine you should have them resurfaced, no need to replace them. You were probably on a freeway and had to step into the brakes quickly, the ABS will cause your brakes to quickly tap against the rotors as to avoid locking up which can give a small grove from the quick tapping and releasing. So your brakes are prolly in good condition just a bit uneven from the quick stopping. :)
