Try Vette Brakes & Products - they have the Pyroceram insulator pucks for Corvette J-56 brakes; if they can't help you, try Lone Star Calipers.

I am curious about the pistons you acquired. Does the face of the piston have a threaded hole for the insulator to be mounted?

Click on red CRG square on top right  of this page, click CRG reports. read J56 report to see what year pistons you have. You will need to know what year your pistons are as they are year specific.
