When I bought my 2005 C6 I didn't get the Z51 package, and of course now I'm sorry I didn't, but I would like to change out my stock rotors and replace them with the Z51 drilled rotors, can anyone out there tell me is this possible without going to GREAT pains?
Can I use the same brakes? or do I need new calipers? Bearings?
Price of all 4 rotors? where to purchase them? Is it a difficult job?
Any and all info would be greatly appreciated.
thanks

Z51 rotors are about a 1/2 bigger than the normal ones. I would just buy a set of aftermarket drilled rotors to replace the ones you have.

Is that a picture of your yellow 06 vette? She's a real beauty, mines Le Mans Blue Met.
If I just buy aftermarket rotors will I have to just replace the old ones or is there anything special I'll have to do, like the brakes or the calipers?
thanks

Just the rotors, but make sure you buy them for a standard C6 not a Z51, people like Baur (spelling maybe wrong) have them.
