Anyone replaced the standard brake calipers on a Z51 with the powder coated replacements out there? Several guys offer powered coated versions that are rebuilt cores. Want to go with red calipers. have 19000 miles on an 06 so will probably do pads at same time but was told the calipers are the same as on the std non Z51 versions. Any thoughts?

I got my calipers from MikethePowderCoater and installed them at 23k miles.  I now have 130k miles on the car and when I clean them up, they look almost as good as they did the day they were put on...

There is a difference between the non-Z51 and Z51 calipers...Mike can advise you.
