If your rebuild kit comes with the pistons and is not just a seal kit, then I assume they are referring to hard=steel and soft=phenolic (molded plastic) for the piston type. The easiest way to know which one you have is to stick a magnet on the piston of your existing calipers...if it sticks, it's steel...if not, phenolic.
