    EBC definitely has good parts. I had their pads on my motorcycle. For people looking to order the factory parts I thought it would be nice to know what can be used since they weren't posted in the original post.

    7,500 mile update. Lots of mixed driving. From a run to Portland from Reno up I5 to twisty 2 lane. A good amount of city driving.
    Very happy with the brakes, no issues noted. Long down hill stretches with confidence. Thanks to all the people who liked this thread and also the ones who viewed the thread.

    10,000 miles on the brake upgrade now. I don't even think about the brakes. They are a seamless part of the car and driving experience. That is the best possible outcome. If every time you drive, you get reminded that there is a change. That would ruin the swap. I am thinking that they will out last the stock setup because of the increased pad and rotor area. Cheers!

    Not sure if the 16" spare you mentioned was a full size spare or not, so just wanted to make sure if these bigger brakes fit with the stock 16" LT rims. I need new rotors so I may try this mod.

    The spare tire I used was the stock cruze 16" compact spare.
    Hope this helps.

    I'm running the stock 16" wheels with the brake upgrade. They work just fine and no interference.

    That is good to know.
    How did the upgrade go? Do you have anything to add for people making the swap?

    I just wanted to jump in here and let everyone know that the caliper carriers are backordered across the US. First, I checked with GM Part Direct and in typical fashion they screwed up. They didn't let me know they were backordered. I then went to my local dealership and had them check across the nation and found two places in California that had them. I then scoured the internet looking on eBay, Amazon, etc. only to have them get crushed in shipping from the one place that had them. I ended up having to buy calipers and carriers from a salvage yard for a lot more than I wanted to. That would be part number 13372779 for those following along. I am still coming in under the $400 quoted here, but I was hoping to be all in for around $260.

    I am surprised that no one is using the Centrix rotors off Rock Auto. I will be doing this soon, but will use those rotors and pads. The cost of those alone will make it quite a bit cheaper.
