Changing the brakes at XC90 2.5T

In next 2 months I plan to refurbish my 6 years old XC90 2.5T VOR with some Heico products and I need also your opinion regarding the brakes.

I suppose that this kit including the front and rear brakes sets ?
In description is also written:
Details
- including stainless steel brake pipes front and rear

I get answer from Heico:

most of the sport brake kits on the market are only for the front axle , because 80% of the brake performance is on the front axle !

What you get is: 6-piston calipers, 370mm discs, brake pads, steel flex brake lines (brake lines also for the rear for a better pressure point)

- including stainless steel brake pipes front and rear
- deceleration values of over 10.35 m/s²
- braking distance 100-0 km/h = 35,4 m (Volvo = 41,2 m)
- fits with VOLUTION® VII. 19/20 inch or VOLUTION® X 19/20 inch.

The new sport brake kit with aluminum calipers fitted with six pistons are a real eye-catcher with their blue lacquer glaze and HEICO SPORTIV logo; and perforated, internally ventilated 370 millimeter diameter brake disks provide for a better response in wet weather and improved heat dissipation. The result: excellent stability, deceleration values of over 10.35 m/s² and a much shorter braking distance than series-production vehicles.
