13" rotors? Says single piston calipers, but they sure look to be dual pistons to me. Either way, single or dual, they should definitely work bettter than the stock S10 calipers and rotors. Looks like 17" is the minimum wheel size. 16" is the minimum size with the LS brake setup. Seems to be a pretty decent "bolt on" setup for the $$... 8)

I was thinking the price isn't bad and plan on running 17 inch wheels anyway. Getting ready to rebuild the front and rear suspension so figure might as well upgrade while at it. Lol

Older post but wanted to update it. I called McGaughy's yesterday and asked about this kit. I was looking at the Willwood brakes and this kit. They are in fact duel piston calipers and are a converted late model Chevy truck brake system. The person I talked to said that the Summit website has the description wrong. I ordered this kit yesterday since I need new front spindles also and it will be here next month. I am wondering if my C6 front brakes will bolt up to this or not. The rep wasn't sure if they would fit or not but did tell me that the pads are a direct replacement GM part and not some offbrand pad that would be hard to find. (Had this happen to me years ago on a similar brake kit) So for the price whether the C6 brakes fit or not excited to get them.

Update...Cancelled my order yesterday for these brakes. I received another email yesterday morning that they will be another month out and will now ship by the end of August. I have received three of these back order notices from Summit and had enough. I don't know why it is taking so long because I called today and acted like I was going to order this kit and they told me that they would ship out today. I ordered them through Summit because of free shipping. If I bought them through McGaughy's it was almost $200 shipping. So now back to the drawing board fro front brakes again.
