I would not buy that; kit. A true upgrade would be one of the big brake kit options. For better than stock get you some hawk pads with centric blanks or slotted. Drilled and slotted is more for looks. Slotted good in rain.

Changed out your brake fluid and make sure the calipers are good. Way less unless you need new calipers.

This is what I would do.
Hawk hps or Ceramic pads up front.
Posi Quiet Ceramic pads in the rear.
Centric Premium High Carbon Brake Rotors or Centric Premium all around.


The HPS pads do dust a lot and will require proper bed in.
check amazon for cheaper price and always look for free shipping.

Rotors... or these...

pads for front or these...


rear pads....

The HPS pads dust a good bit and will need to be bedded in properly.
