Default rear brake caliper replacement questions 2001 se

I will be replacing both rear calipers on my 2001 SE. Looking at the available calipers I see they have loaded, semi-loaded and unloaded types. Also they show sport suspension and standard suspension. I bought this car used and I'm reasonably sure it is in stock condition. Did the SE come with sport suspension?
What is the meaning of "Loaded, semi loaded etc?
I have replaced complete brake systems on several of my cars but have never come across the descriptions I am seeing.
Thanks for any help.

Yes, the SE had the Sport Brakes.

I have not previously heard the loaded question. But after a brief search:

Unloaded (no pads or hardware) & Semi-loaded (with hardware but no pads) Loaded (pads and hardware)

Thanks Sixshooter.
I had previously ordered and received the OEM pads that are complete with all the goodies. Then I found out that one of the calipers was leaking. I didn't want to order the wrong items and then wind up returning them.
I appreciate your help.
