Question Front Brake Parts 1987 560 SL

I need to replace my 1987 560 SL's front rotors, brake pads and rebuild the calipers. I'm ordering:

Caliper rebuild kit
Hoses (just for fun)

I don't think I have Bendix calipers, but how can I tell? Is there anything else I should order as SOP? Thanks, mscotta

1.) Wheel bearing grease (the special MB type)
2.) Extra brake fluid (for complete bleed and refill)
The calipers are marked (can't remember if it's inner or outer side; may need to pull a wheel off to see it.
The Golden Rule

1984 300SD (bought new, sold it in 1988, bought it back 13 yrs. later)
