  1. Gen1 Wheels, Tires, Brakes, & Suspension
    Remember I mentioned my 2013 RS made a certain noise only @ 38-45 MPH.... I called a radio car talk show and mentioned this to him and he suggested replacing both drums and shoes. I have been looking into the parts involved online and Rock auto states what I suspect(just buy 2 drums and a...
  2. Gen1 Wheels, Tires, Brakes, & Suspension
    I was wondering if anyone else has replaced the rear drums on their gen 1. I have 68K on my 2013 RS and they don't stop(assist stopping that great) and I adjusted last night and it seems whenever I adjust the rear drums on this car, the removal and replacement of said drums is more difficult...
  3. Gen1 Wheels, Tires, Brakes, & Suspension
    Recently I replaced the front pads and rotors on my cruze but let the rear drums and shoes remain the same due to very little wear. So what I’m asking now is it recommended to adjust the rear drums after replacing the front pads and rotors? My rear drums seem to sound louder than usual since...

    As you know I bought this car in May and it runs fine just some noise in the rear. I did notice after I bought, the rear shoes appeared to be "new"/just recently replaced with 50K on the car. The drum particularly on the driver side rather difficult to remove/reinstall. Been thinking should...

    55,000 miles in New England entering it's 3rd winter. I've never had drums before, but they are really rusty all over. Can I grind it down a bit? I'll try n grab a picture tonight. I don't want to paint them, too much color from the big drums. Any other ideas?
  8. Gen1 Wheels, Tires, Brakes, & Suspension
    After neglecting the rear drums for 250k miles I decided to clean the brakes, something I should have considered part of routine maintenance. For anyone interested its a simple process and only requires a T30 bit and brake cleaner. I measured 7/32 remaining on the shoes. Here are a couple...

    Anyone knows if switching rear drum brakes for rear disk brakes would be hard to do? Some of my friends told me it shouldn't be to hard.. Since LTZ has rear disk brakes, I guess it shouldn't be either. Anyone knows more about that? What would need to be done to make sure everything is proper and...
