The kit is for S Plaid & Long Range, and X Plaid w/black calipers that has upright - Not for standard S & X with red calipers due to the difference in spindles.

Standard S & X Front Spindle (Caliper is axle mount)

Rear rotor upgrade (Iron 2 pc lightweight or CCM rotors) are added to the option:

See how RB's attention to the details on brake pad design, for an overall system performance improvement than just stock replacement (eg. only big rotor.)

A larger pad (in area) means a lower braking temperature for the same heat load, and can last longer on rotor and pad than a smaller pad.
