    There was a topic posted here about converting to rear disc brakes awhile back, they mentioned two different rear axles used int he cruze. Sounded like if you had a 2011-2012 1LT,2LT or LTZ(the axle with the zlink) you could convert to rear discs(only the 1LT has drums of those three).
    That would mean the LS & Eco manual are using a different axle.

    IN 2013 the 1LT nolonger get the zlink unless you buy the RS package.

    Lifetime: 10.6 cents per mile @ $3.73 average price over 52K miles

    The main beam is the same, but for what the parts would cost you would be better off looking for a complete rear axle assembly from a junkyard

    Its held in by 4 bolts 2 in the frame rails and 2 on the axle/ spring perch, my advise buy a zlink somewhere and see where you need holes and go from there the 2011 ls has zlink so the only difference in axles could be the eco

    If you do this, won't it mess up the brake balance/ stabilitrak etc?

    Brake balance should be controlled in the ABS block by the EBCM, there is no longer a proportioning valve to worry about so it should be able to adjust. If it doesn't simply a matter of swapping EBCM's
