They're only listed for the LX? That's not right. Maybe you mean they're only listed for the EX?
Anyway, all you have to remember is that the EX has ABS. In 2001 the EX had an option of ABS (I think?).
ABS has nothing to do with it though 'cause look at AEM's High Performance Brake Pads. They list them for all of the trim levels.
You need ABS brakes on ABS equiped cars, but you can mount ABS brakes on non-ABS equiped cars. The sensor will just not be used. It won't plug into any harness. The non-ABS master cylinder will just apply pressure to the brake fluid as soon as you step on the brakes.

Edit: Now, AEM's Big Brake Kit is for the LX and EX. Basically for all trim levels. In the case of non-ABS equiped cars the sensor will not be used. That is if it's even shipped with that kit. Maybe they just have a mounting location so that you can transfer it from the stock location.
