      I'll have to check on the exact sizes, but yes the pad will have full rotor coverage.

      just purchased the caliper kit for my bday yesterday, going in on Saturday to test fit the calipers shown. I'm going to try their street pad (ET300) and race pad (XT960). I'll gather piston size and as much technical data as I can...

      So you'll need new fronts, but you would want to keep upgraded rears if you have them.

      I'd imagine if you're upgrading, you could sell your front brakes with those fresh lines included.

      Received more info today...

      Pad Update:
      below is the pad that will be used with the RacingBrake caliper.

      SPECS:
      FMSI (Friction Materials Standards Institute) Pad D#1149
      R32 FMSI #8519 = 63.8x19.3x116 (Width/Thickness/Length)
      RB460 FMSI #8259 (actual pad) = 60x16.5x139

      This pad is also used by Jeep and most any brake manufacture will have any compound you need (street/track).

      These pads will have a little more friction area compared to OEM.

      S/N FMSI D Number FMSI Friction Number Make Model Location Year
      1552 D1149 8259 JEEP GRAND CHEROKEE FRONT 2006-2007

      Even given the vehicle model info above, it's still challenging for me to find a selection of pads that I can tell for sure will fit.
