  1. Gen1 Wheels, Tires, Brakes, & Suspension
    As the title suggests, my 2014 Cruze leans extremely lower on the rear driver side than any other point in the car. I honestly cannot recall if my car had always been like that because I had never done anything special to it. Recently, I had new wheels installed so now I'm always eyeballing my...
  2. General Discussion
    Over a month ago I had 4 new tires installed and my front brake pads + rotors replaced (Same day) . For the tires I went from the Gen 2 stock size of 225/40/18 to 225/45/18. Seemingly after that I started having acceleration and vibration issues. Mainly under load and when going up a hill or...
  3. Gen1 Wheels, Tires, Brakes, & Suspension
    I have a 2014 chevy cruze ls m/t 1.8. This last winter was very rough on my suspension and I'm suspecting I'm in need of a new strut soon. I'm playing around with the idea of getting some sort of performance suspension. I looked around online and I mostly just saw lowering kits which I don't...
  4. Gen2 Brakes/Suspension Tutorials
    I went through the tutorials in this section and tried to group them in a functional pattern. In general, I started at the front of the car and went back. If you think there might be a better way to group items, I'm all ears. If you add a new tutorial and I don't catch it, post a note here so I...
  5. Gen1 Wheels, Tires, Brakes, & Suspension
    Hi all, I am having a hard time finding a standalone strut or complete quick strut assembly to replace my original 2011 LT RS sport front suspension. I already made the mistake of assuming the standard strut would work , ordered it and found out they are way too tall. Anyone replace these ...
  6. Gen1 Wheels, Tires, Brakes, & Suspension
    Hi all, first time poster on the forums. I have a 2014 Chevy Cruze LT with 55k on it. Been noticing this issue for a few months now, but it hasn't really gotten considerably bad until recently. I'm hearing a noticeable rattling/clunking noise coming from the front passenger side wheel that in...
  7. Gen1 Wheels, Tires, Brakes, & Suspension
    So I just completed a 600 mile round trip in Wisconsin in the winter. 70 miles an hour most of the way. Roads are rough during this time especially, so one needs to keep that in mind. That being said, I asked myself, "Now that I've had this car for 4.5 years and have put 75,000 miles on it...

    https://www.chevrolet.com/performance/cruze/suspension Anybody try this official kit from GM yet? I'm really curious because it's a nice 1/2" drop but with improved spring rates and a thicker sway bar. I have a 18 RS Hatch and I'd love for it to be a little more confident on the road. I think a...

    I have diagnosed the problem to be a CV axle, so i ordered a new front drive side axle. It arrived today and the axle looks way too long, would anybody possibly have a video of a front driver side axle replacement or a link or part number for an OEM front driver side axle, I got a duralast one...
  10. Gen1 Brakes/Suspension Tutorials
    I went through the tutorials in this section and tried to group them in a functional pattern. Normally I start at the front of the car and go back, but in this case I grouped by general categories for now.. If you think there might be a better way to group items, I'm all ears. If you add a new...

    Nevermind, I see this was a mistake.
  12. Gen2 Wheels, Tires, Brakes, & Suspension
    I ordered the accessory suspension from Chevy and it shipped with just a set of springs and some bolts. The description on the website says it includes a larger sway bar, but doesn't show it...
  13. Gen1 Wheels, Tires, Brakes, & Suspension
    Hi everyone, I have a noise from the front passenger side that started towards the end of a road trip (1000 miles total). I ran over a few pot holes and construction ‘bumps’ from uneven pavement on the trip, but nothing worse than I've encountered before. The noise occurs over most bumps and...
  14. Gen2 Wheels, Tires, Brakes, & Suspension
    Hi all, I just picked up a '18 diesel / hatch / manual. Fun so far! I was hoping to pick up the Chevrolet accessory performance suspension to make it a little more responsive. My first thought is that the diesel probably weighs a bunch more than the gas motor, so I wonder if the accessory...
  15. Buy/Sell Classifieds
    I bought my car and it has lowering springs in it and I was wondering if anyone knows a good company or any one that has stock suspension for sale or just stock height suspension?
  16. Gen1 Wheels, Tires, Brakes, & Suspension
    I bought lowering springs a few months back and haven't placed them in the car yet. I was wondering with the high millage on the car what other items I should be looking at to replace possibly. Even more if there is better parts for the suspension that could be replace who do you recommend...
  17. Gen1 Wheels, Tires, Brakes, & Suspension
    Hi, I am looking to see if anybody could help me find a pair of replacement rear struts for a 2012 Chevy Cruze LTz. About a month ago I bought a front complete strut assembly kit from CARID.com (UNITY® 2-11881-11882-001). I was skeptical about getting these struts due to the lack of...
  18. Gen2 Wheels, Tires, Brakes, & Suspension
    I have a 2017 premier hatch with 15k on the clock. I have noticed a popping sound on acceleration and braking, also when going around corners and over speed bumps. It sounds like something has gotten into a bind and is popping loose occasionallly. I have had it to the dealer once and they...
  19. Gen1 Wheels, Tires, Brakes, & Suspension
    I have a 2014 CTD and I was looking into getting eibach lowering spring but I read some posts that said they wont do anything unless you get shocks too, so I figured I should just get coil overs instead. I don't really want to spend a ton of money though so I was looking and there is a huge gap...
