Default Front brake caliper size

I have a 2017 Grand Sport with the two piece front rotors. VIN 1G1YY2D79H5107845.. I purchased a set of PowerStop brake pads to alleviate the brake dust of the Brembo pads. The replacement pads will not fit into the calipers, pads being about 1/4" to wide. I was standing next to the Shop Foreman at Russell Chevrolet Shewrwood, AR. and saw the problem. I contacted the GM help line and was referred back to the dealer. I contacted PowerStop and they sent a second set of pads to be sure the pads I bought were not miss labeled. The replacement pads still do not fit. I then contacted CarboTech and was given a link to the industry standard pad dimensions ( http://www.ozparts.eu/HB649Z-605 ) and they were to same size as the PowerStop pads.

Do some of the 2017 GS Corvettes with the two piece rotors have a different specifications that the "norm:"?

Went by the Chevy dealer's parts department to compare the front pads with the PowerStop pads.

None in stock and were $400+ so, of course, did not order the part solely to compare to size.

Still puzzled.

Give me your best price for your street performance CarboTech brakes for my 2017 GS coupe.

An remember you are guaranteeing they will fit. The powerstop pads did not fit.
