C7 side skirts can be very hard to find. They can be very hard to find for a very good reason. It is a phenomenon we have talked about before on this site. The consumers are talking about a product differently than the automobile industry does. It is this disconnect that makes finding the right products for your vehicle so difficult. The common people are speaking about things almost literally in a different language than the people who are making or designing the items are themselves. The difference of semantics causes a lot of confusion and problems for both sides of the coin. The consumer has a hard time finding what they want and the manufacturer may be convinced that they have developed a product that does not sell, therefore, they might be inclined to scale back production because of the, seemingly, lack of volume of sales or searches. Either way, ultimately it ends up hurting the consumer because they have a hard time finding the product because of semantics initially then they have a hard time finding the product because of the lack of sales volume later.

One more thing you could be confused about is if you are looking for the type with more support or strength. The reason someone might be looking for this is that the rocker panels or C7 side skirts provide a measure of support and protection in case you get into an accident.
