    Ok thanks for the quick descriptive reply. I ask all these questions because when I lookup those numbers @ Gm parts direct they say they are for the verano & cruzebut all makes & models from diesel cruze to the 2.0 verano. I think thecruze diesel has bigger rotors than a 1.4 turbo stock. So is it an error on GMdirect site? Here are a few links & once again thanks for input guys

    Dust shields #13324458 at $12 and #13324459 at $13

    SPLASH SHIELD - 2013 Buick Encore (95286840)

    PS: I think I got the part number for the new caliperbracket bolt from GM 11546339 that we would need for this upgrade

    There is everything you need. The splash shields are for a diesel Cruze from what was said earlier in this thread, everything else is Encore/Trax parts. They may be common with other GM vehicles as well, but that's what I know works.

    Not so fast. The mounting holes are the right distance center to center but the Encore bracket uses 14mm bolts. The mounting holes will need to be drilled to accommodate. The drill I used is 35/64" just under the 14mm size. Because the drilling process is never perfect, this size drill bit was perfect. IF YOU DON'T HAVE THE SKILLS TO TAKE THIS STEP, STOP RIGHT NOW. You also need a socket for the large nut on the axle in 32mm.

    I hope last question what's the difference from these rotors part number 13502060 $77.52 & 23118342 $55.82?? they both fit the chevy trax. I think GM rotors come in a painted coated & non-coated rotors. is this the difference from these two?

    Look into using the high quality EBC Brake rotors. Nothing against GM, but they do buy from the lowest bidder. Everything I have ever used from EBC has been top quality and I will be installing EBC pads and rotors on my Cruze and my son's TDI soon.

    I already covered this several posts before and I stated that they are the same coated rotor. The more expensive one is from Korea, the cheaper one is from Mexico. Talking closely with parts reps I have not heard much good of parts coming from Korea.
