I bought new

What was the reasoning for the new shock mounts? I have yet to install mine and previous experience with shocks was buy shock and reuse metal mounts as they really did not wear out. Is there something I need to look at to determine whether or not I should buy? Do you have a part # as well.

2nd Question - did you use any Camber bolts? I purchased a set of Eibach bolts with my struts and wanted to know if they are needed or not.

The fronts needed to be done as they were worn. The rears, I replaced just to make sure. They weren't bad, but I didn't want to find out they were bad in 10k miles and have to pull the shocks off again. Not that it's difficult on the rear.

I bought the mounts from rockauto, KYB for the rear ands Monroe for the front

I did not use camber bolts and don't believe they are necessary on stock springs.

I forgot you went stock height. I have Eibach springs and the sport struts.

Just adding my $.02:

Since my Bilstein sport struts are warranted for life, I chose to purchase the rest of the needed parts that also has a lifetime warranty. Moog seems to be the only manufacturer to offer this warranty for the parts I needed.

You will need 2ea K160334 – these are the Cruze specific strut mounts – they are hard to locate for some reason, but the Moog Tech Hotline verified them for me.

You will need 2ea K150275 if you have standard struts – These are stock strut bellows (wrongly listed as strut mounts everywhere I looked), this is not needed if you have sport struts.

You will need 2ea K750519 – These are the end links



You will need 1ea K200843 – These are front sway bar bushings

I have no affiliation with DST, but Tammy was of great assistance in pricing and locating parts for me. I ended up purchasing just the Strut Mounts from DST as the others were cheaper on Amazon. This is the only place that seems to have access to these mounts.

Just to confirm, these are the extras you can get to go with everything? I recently got new mounts and links but debating on ordering the covers and bushings.
Sorry for the delay, I did not know you had asked a question and wasn't monitoring this thread - so - it looks like XR answered, but as a follow up:

The generic answer to your question is yes. The mounts though, ended up being the wrong type
and I am still waiting on the replacements. Whenever they show up, I'll list the new numbers here.

Hello everyone i am pretty sure i will be ordering the b4s as the 6s are not available anymore and i dont need the extra love i think the 4s will greatly improve the drive over the never changed 200k miles struts that have been thru 2 crashes now lol.

My question is besides new mounts do i need those front strut bumpers ? i cant seem to find any pictures or youtube videos if anyone replaced those or not. I plan on keeping original springs unless i need to get new ones.

Thanks.
What do you mean? Can you take a picture of them?

that or the bumper/shock absorber bump stop dont know correct name
Yes you should keep the bump stops. Some have shaved them, but I have not. They are your travel limiters that keep the suspension from hitting metal to metal.
