The gentleman on SilveradoSS dot com that manufactures and sales the brackets to use the C6 Z06 brake calipers goes by rudy91040. He still had some available the last I heard. He also has a thorough write-up titled Z06 Brake Conversion on the SS site that will explain and show you what is involved in performing the installation. These brackets are patterned off the brackets Ray (supersub) built and modified slightly for more trouble free installation on a wider variety of spindles. I have the brackets Ray originally built and they work flawlessly on my stock spindles. I also have an older set of brackets that were designed and built by JYD and while we were thankful that he made them available, they were also designed around usage of the 14” PowerSlot + rotors and don’t lend themselves to proper fitment with the Baer 15” rotors like the ones available from rudy91040. Of course, besides the parts listed below you will also need a set of brake pads, to which you do have some choices from GM to Hawk, but MTI Racing also has a set that are full single pads instead of the padlets (6 individual pads) that are reported to increase the braking ability over the padlets and give better rotor wear.

Below is a list of parts you will need to make the conversion in conjunction with the available brackets:

Baer rotor part numbers:
front right- 6910962 qty (1)

So rudy, Ray, & JYD are the only ones who've make conversion brkts. to your knowledge correct? And of those, JYD is out, Ray has his on his truck so that only leaves 1 true one remaining?

From what Ive been told the Vette's work dam well, and at a fraction of the price as they're available used/jobbers/scrappers...I recall someone on here did all 4 corners for the price of 2...

Still trying to get my eggs in one basket here. Lets get this straight. What is the difference in a 05+ truck compared to a 99-04? just larger rotors and different calipers to fit around them? just a different caliper bracket?

Im weighting my options. maybe a z06 conversion? or im thinking off getting the ssbc 4 wheel 14" rotor upgrade, but trying to figure out how to do that. Id really like to upgrade the rear calipers to 2 pistons atleast, but if i get the kit for a truck the rotors will be to skinny for the 2 piston suv calipers correct?

Yes, the 05+ fronts are a larger caliper, pad and rotor. They are made by PBR and may in fact be the same as the Baer Alumasports.

I have run the SSBC +1 kit and I was not at all happy with it.

I have recently converted to 05 fronts, 2 piston SUV rears and hydroboost. Even with the factory rubber hoses, I am quite pleased with the result.

When I installed my alumasports I thought the calipers looked identicle and both had PBR on them....only one was fancy red.....but the alumasports did make a difference

SSBC makes good stuff. I had 14" rotors and upgraded 3 piston calipers on the front, braided lines, aggressive pads and the Hydroboost would put you through the windshield on 22"s on my wife's Yukon XL
