The calipers are the same, either for a base C6 or a Z-51.
Therefore, also the brake pads are the same for the two models as well.
However, the brackets are different sizes on Z-51 models in order
to move them out further to make room for the larger rotors on
These are from a base C6 corvette. So the calipers and pads are okay
for z-51, just not the brackets.
They were glass-beaded and then painted with high temp ceramic paint.
We chose to paint them because we were told you dont ever want to powdercoat calipers. Powder-coating creates a thermal barrier, trapping heat that the caliper is desperately trying to shed. I believe stock z-06 calipers are painted and not powdercoated for this reason. Sure, a powder coated surface is stronger than paint , but shedding brake dust would be the same I guess. Its a painted finish and wipes or rinses right off. Hope that helps.
