Thanks for looking!
Based on GM Late-Model Brake Job - Tomorrows Technician
it looks like TTY bolts would likely be required if you have to remove a caliper bracket to do any of this. I haven't personally seen one, but have done lots of others. I can't imagine they would have redesigned such that the a caliper bracket was a permanent part of the caliper . . . meaning the caliper possibly could be removed from the bracket like a lot of cars do.
Someone who has worked on this platform could perhaps chime in with more.
