Is there any difference in clearance from the caliper to the wheel vs stock brembo's?

What shipping did you guys get from Amazon. I left it with the free shipping option, since it's the same as standard. I hope it doesn't take forever. I ordered two days ago and they haven't at least shipped them out yet

So, looking for rotor choice alternatives for this setup so I can weigh my options. Not finding much out there that's made for the ZL1.

So my question is this: will a set of rotors designed for a CTS-V fit? These are aftermarket rotors, not the one piece that came on the CTS-Vs. Just want to make sure the V's don't have some wonky design difference that's different than a ZL1 before I order.

A lot of members used the actual cts v rotors in the 6 piston swap, so if it's designed for the cts v then it will work. But the cts v rear rotors have a different offset so we can't use cts v rear rotors from what I've read

Duly noted. I'll give the company a call tomorrow and see what they say, but if need be, I'll just buy ones made fore the CTS-V in the front only, then get some made for SS brakes in the rear.

I'm in the same boat as you. I was gonna get the cts v dual cast from amazon but I decided to be patient and grab the two piece zl1 rotors off amazon for a lil bit more.

I've got my eye on some from Brake Performance. I know they're nothing special performance wise, but I like the warranty and I just think they look cool lol. Plus they weigh slightly less than the CTS-V rotors.

Yea they do look pretty cool. And if you can get some rear matched SS rotors it would be sweet. How much are they asking.

Not bad at all. I would imagine they would be the same size as the oem cts v

Their website says they guarantee OEM fitment. I'm sure performance isn't any better than stock but they seem decent quality and the warranty gives me peace of mind.

Yea they should be good then. I just love how massive the ZL1 rotor is. I never imagined getting them until this post and I seen the amazon price. I'm gonna wait 2 weeks before I purchase the rotors. I ordered the 6 piston calipers, pins, and pads to get that out the way, now I gotta make a decision on rotors

I called them and they said they should fit, but they don't have any in stock whatsoever for any of their front rotor styles. Need to check around and see if another re seller has any since she told me the wait could be over a month.

Hopefully you can find similar ones around the same price

I couldnt find any other than some on rotorsonline.com and they didn't offer a warranty longer than 1 year so I'll just have to get the Brake Performance ones and hope they get some soon.

Just got a call from Brake Performance. Apparently they do have the rotors. I think the woman I talked to was mixed up. The person I spoke to on the phone today said they just didn't have front brake pads for the CTS-V rotors (they come with a free set of brake pads), but did have the rotors so they're just going to ship me two sets of rear pads, I already have some hawk pads so I'll just sell them anyways.

I'll definitely post some once I get them on. The woman on the phone said they were the same size as the cts-v 1-piece rotors, so now I need to double check and make sure that they'll fit. Don't want to be ready to put them on only to find they have a different hub fitment or something and spend $60 on shipping to return them.

If it's oem cts v size then there shouldn't be any fitment issues

I hope you're right. Just a little anxious since I'm probably the first guy to do this with these rotors. I spent hours yesterday looking and found 3 companies that had rotors that weren't just factory replacements. I'm really surprised there aren't any companies making these yet for the ZL1 besides RacingBrake.

There are other options look for zl1 and cts-v rotors on the web and you see R1 Concepts, Centric, DBA and others make rotors.

Amazon Prime!

The one caliper in stock was at my house the next day.

OE Brembo pads and the stainless lines for me.

This is the best Camaro brake thread ever!!!

Wondering too how the cheaper pads will do.

I ordered the OEM pads and received them today.......The pictures do not do them justice as far as how different the material is betweern the OEM pads and the AC Delco pads

I have received data in regards to the factory pads temp ranges from testing at GM and will share what I can later....

Finally, I am using the Silver CTS-V rear calipers to match the front and they ARE NOT a direct bolt on. Both the GEN1 and GEN2 calipers require modifications to use. I KNOW "but everyone says they bolt on" They are all wrong as a modification is need to both to use.

I ordered both sets-to view/confirm the differences....I will post a separate thread about the calipers, differences and mods that need to be made to use them.

You might do better to just return them for a refund. The rear ones are the same as the stock ones on any SS/1LE. Just take your stock ones and paint them to match the fronts. It'll save you money and you can do whatever color you want.
