    Before making any changes to your car you must have the skills and the tools. If you don't have both, have your licensed auto mechanic do the work. No exceptions. Brakes are a life and death situation. Going is optional, stopping is mandatory. Thanks to the Sonic forum for much research on...

    Iv'e never had a car with drum brakes (at least I don't think so), and in the future I want to replace the rear drums with discs. How expensive is this venture? As Ive never done a brake conversion myself. I wouldn't want to do it myself unless it were really really easy.

    So the other night I was driving back to Hays from the Wichita area and a deer ran out a little bit in front of me. I hit the brakes with medium force and they locked up briefly before I let off. Even though slowing down was important, I had to let off when I did because in the second or so that...

    Installed Brembo brakes yesterday on a 2012 Cruze. It's the kit that is listed for the Sonic. Since the Sonic and Cruze use the same calipers and rotors they bolted right up. The spacing for the caliper bracket was the same. Just had to remove the dust shield, and use a 15mm spacer so the wheel...

    I have the ZZP bbk. Pads are garbage, and I am on my 3rd set of rotors which are once again cracked in so many places I can't believe they still sell the pad/rotor setup. So, with that said... I already know the hawk HB249F.575 pads work with the big brake kit and that it's meant for the...

    I know that the disc bolt pattern is different 5x110 vs the Cruze 5x105. What I would like to find out is, is the caliper mounting hole spacing the same? I am OK with drilling custom holes for the disc mounting. But if the caliper mount is going to be an issue, I will have to rethink the swap...

    Hello, I have a UK model 2010 1.8 LT CRUZE which has 50k mileage. For the last few days I have been noticing that when I set off at the traffic lights my brake lights remain on even after taking my foot off the brake pedal. This happens sometimes. Sometimes releasing the clutch pedal makes...

    Has anybody done the rear brakes and rotors yet? Any special tools needed, like to remove the rotor from the hub or anything? I haven't looked at it yet, but thinking about doing it myself.

    Engine off, pressing on the brake pedal three times to release the reserve vacuum, reach a very hard pedal when only depressed about a half an inch. With the engine running, the pedal goes down about an inch and a half. Never experienced this on other power brakes I have or had. With my other...

    Is there a part shortage for GM P/N 55581014? My 2012 Cruze ECO has a very rough idle and I have almost no brakes in reverse? Is there a known issue with this (or the factory part) or is a new design in the works? I have been unable to drive my car for over two (2) weeks and my dealer claims...
  11. Gen1 1.4L Turbo
    I have received three (3) statements from my dealer re: my 2012 Cruze ECO 1.4L turbo A/T. First noticed that when in reverse, I could barely stop the car as if there was no vacuum for the power assist brakes. A couple of days later, at a stop sign, (while engine was still cold) the idle was...

    Hi Guys: I replaced the front disc pads and hardware kit on my 2012 Cruze at 70,000 Miles . In addition I had the rotors turned to give me a clean start with the new pads. When I finished the job, I found these two small (what appear to be) clips on the garage floor. See attached photo. Any...

    Hi I'm wondering if any of you could help me with the following problem. Whenever I would drive at around 80-100km/h the ABS light turns on for a short time and then disappears, after which the vehicle service light turns on and stays there. It only disappears once I turn my car off and turn it...

    I bought my new 2011 Cruze LT 4years ago and put 57,000 miles on it. I love my car, my dealer and the 32 miles per gallon I get. However I have a brake problem. I think I need a new power brake booster. Two years ago I had a problem with braking on a cold engine but the recall to replace the...

    Hey y'all. So I'm bored and looking at car parts. Zzp makes a rear disk kit for the sonic that's $400. Doesn't fit the cruze. I'd like to invite everyone to harass them into making one for ours. I already sent them an email about this as well as motor mounts that don't completely ruin engine...

    Hey guys, I'm getting a new set of tires put on this week and know I'm due for some maintenance on my brakes. If I wanted to upgrade from the factory pads etc, what would you recommend? I'm not feeling a big brake kit type of upgrade, just better pads and whatever else you can just bolt on...
