    Very interesting. Good to know. But, IMO, still well worth the price difference for that alone...

    How much are the replacement discs for these, out of curiousity? That price makes the two piece much more attractive than they were at $1000+ and if the replacement discs are at least no more than a stock rotor it seems like it turns into a no brainer fast.

    Someone here said GM won't sell the replacement discs because they are pre-torqued at the factory and don't want the consumer bolting these things together.

    But GM will totally sell you every other brake part..........

    GM does not sell the discs, only complete rotor

    Is the disc portion of the 2 piece rotor available from any other source?

    Lame. All in the name of liability lawyers. Think of how more cost effective it could be if you only had to replace the braking surface. Oh, I forgot, GM thinks I'm too f-ing stupid to properly secure a few bolts in the process of doing my brake job. Did I mention I hate lawyers ?

    I believe these to be the "floating" design. I'd be lying if I said I knew exactly what the difference is though....

    I really need a set of these. I assume all GM dealers are carrying them now, but thanks for the update Lindsay Cadillac! If I have difficulty when I'm ready to switch I'll let you know.

    Do yourself a favor and just call Luke directly for the parts. In most cases he can get them to you faster and cheaper then local dealers.
