Two piece front brake rotors incorporate a steel rotor ring and aluminum rotor hat, reducing rotating mass/unsprung weight about 8 pounds.

Seeking vendor recommendations

Thanks.
I think you should get lightweight wheels instead. Get some Enkei RPF1 wheels.

Thanks.
in the 4th gen GS forum, there are problems with the two piece factory rotors (which prompted lexus to issue a TSB).
the vendor that handled the aftermarket solution is R1concepts (CL vendor).

you may be able to work with them on a solution for the LS.
though keep in mind the demand for a two piece solution is much less for the LS than others, so they may be less inclined to help.
they may charge a ton for the R&D for a one-off product for you!
