So doing a little research today I figured out you just need to switch brackets to put the tbss or ext trailblazer 12.90 inch rotors on the front. Pretty simple! But looking into the back single piston brakes there was no options. So after doing a little parts checking I came up with this. Silverado SSs came with an option for 13" rear rotors and dual piston calipers. So I grabbed a rotor and caliper with bracket from the parts store. Well what do you know obviously GM probably did the same thing on a test truck. All it seems you have to do is make gap for caliper wider on backing plate to accommodate the dual piston caliper. See how the wide vented rotor takes up the gap? They appear to line right up. So you get giant back brakes to match the front bigger brakes. The other mod will be slotting rotors for smaller lug pattern. Which is very close anyway. first pic is stock rotor with huge gap behind it factory. Second is Silverado SS caliper and rotor with lugs knocked out for fitting. See how the gap from dust plate to rotor is correct with Silverado SS rotor. (And the huge venting?). So i ordered drilled and slotted tbss 12.79 front rotors and 13 inch drilled and slotted rears for a Silverado SS. This thing should stop on a dime and never fade the brakes.

Holy Grail

Finally got the motor mounts. I Think I'm going to swap the rear end soon. Got the Massive bar set up. Picture does not do these justice. They are nice.

Got brakes bled and 20"s on rear with new rubber. you have to trim the backing plate and grind off a little nub that is in between the bracket mounting bolts.
