OK I've been looking all over the net and can't find the answers to what I' looking for.
I'm wanting to upgrade my brakes. Have been looking at the J56 calipers and rotors. These calipers can take up to 14" and 1.25" wide. But they are expensive. I've been looking at the J57 calipers used on the ZR1's. They can handle a 15" rotor, but I can't for the life of me find out what thickness rotor it requires.

If I can take the J57 caliper and use the Rotors from a ZO6 (14") then I will be good. I'm making all my own brackets anyways.

OK I think I finally found out some information. The Front J57 calipers are setup for 1.42" wide rotors. J56 calipers are set up for 1.25" wide rotors. The rear J57 calipers are setup for 1.34" wide rotors and the J56 rears are set up for 1.1" 2009 C6 ZO6 front brakes use the J56 rotors that are 14" x 1.25".

Is there a reason that I can't take the J57 calipers and use on the ZO6 rotors?
