How may I order these brackets??

I'm currently sold out.  I'm looking into possibly having more machined.  Drop me a line in a month or two to see where I'm at.

I have easily the best news since rudy made this possible. Baer finally makes a 2 piece rotor to fit this setup. There is bad news...they only have a set for the front. They don't make a 14" 2-piece rotor for the rear (not yet). I ordered these things on a whim after checking out the engineering specs. I honestly had no guarantee, but after i got them on, they cleared perfectly. Some things to note:
The pad tension clips will rub if not worked a little. Dont fret if they sit on the rotor though. You need to set the rotor on the hub, grab 2 lug nuts and the 2 washers off the caliper bolts and tighten them slowly back and forth until the rotor seats (don't forget to put the washers back)....or just wire brush any rust off. Then once you torque the wheels on they will seat 100% and the clips will just have enough clearance. 100 ft lbs of torque on the wheels!!!! No more. These are aluminum hats.
They are significantly lighter. I dont have a scale but id say close to half the weight. If you have ever put 2 piece rotors on anything you know the difference they make in both cooling and weight loss at the hubs.
They can be ordered in slotted, drilled, or both.
They are pricey. $895 a pair. Yup. Thats nothing, my 370z's were about 1200 a pair and only 14". This is a bargain. I unfortunately havent gotten to test drive them due to transmission issues but im sure it will be noticeable. 
Here are the part numbers:
Rotor hats - 6140084   (need 2)
Friction disc - 6910309    (note these are directional, also i ordered slotted only)
Friction disc - 6920309    (note these are directional, also i ordered slotted only)
Hat bolts - 6060061   (need 24)
Hat lock nuts - 6160010   (need 24)
They will come pre-assembled if you order everything. I dont think there is a part number for the entire disc assembly. If you tell them the part numbers for the original 2 front discs in this post then they should be able to get you the 2 piece version.  I recommend talking to mark fowler. You have to specify z06 monoblocks on a silverado, but he should understand.  His contact is :

Enjoy!

Very nice! I prefer a slotted only disc. You're right, this whole deal is a huge bargain even with the two piece rotors.

Finally got all my shit together to do the upgrade to my wife's 2009 Bright Blue Escalade ESV.  Only thing I am missing right now are the banjo bolts that attach the brake lines to the new Z06 calipers.  The bolts that came with my Stoptech SS brake lines do not fit.  Different thread pitch.  Cannot wait to get this done !!!  Thanks again to Rudy and Ray and everyone whose made this whole thing possible.
