So you are looking for calipers, pads and rotors or just pads and rotors?

I have a set of 2008 z06 rotors w/ 22k miles in exc cond for $200, but shipping would probably kill you. Where are you located?

You'll be looking at C5 or base C6 brakes in that range. The lowest I've seen C6Z calipers (only calipers) go for was 800. They're pricey!

The base c5/c6 brake setup with good pads work surprisingly well.

Also will need appropriate wheels to boot, you used to be able to simply buy the Z06 brakes new for 200$ a caliper for the fronts but I believe the prices have gone up since they're not actively manufactured still.

Aftermarket calipers pads and rotors only as a kit when I glanced which might not be direct fit but was only $600 which may be a good route for what Iím trying to do compared to used if I canít find them for what I have right now. I picked up my wheels for cheap couple $100 bucks just need a few tires. Still gotta get a new battery and alternator as I donít believe mine is strong enough or good anymore battery wonít stay charged and itís simi new I hardly use the car. Thatís why I started buying stuff for it to get it going again although not the right direction at once eventually I have a lot to replace all rubber components bushings ect. Have a lot of plans eventually to get to just broke most of the time haha
