2014 LT program car, Pull Me Over Red

I have a 2014 LT 1.4T and a set of Eibachs. I have been looking at the Bilstein B8's and one of the options for the rear shocks is with or without IDS suspension. I am pretty sure I do not have the Z-Link, but am clueless as to what the IDS is.

Any thoughts?

To my understanding, if you have rear dial brakes you have it, I don't believe they have IDS suspension in the cruze with drum brakes in the rear

I assume you meant disk. I have drums. Is IDS an RPO code?

My phones autocorrect is rediculous.. disk is a very commonly used word.. but yes, you don't have ids if you have a cruze LS with rear drum, they didn't put a zlink rear on the ruze with drum brakes either, I may be wrong but that's what they told me when buying my car

Not to beat a dead horse, but one more time to be sure:

LT with drum = no IDS

When I bought my car they didn't make the chevy cruze with rear disk brakes without the z link. It was either LS drum brakes in the rear or rear disk with z link. But if you have rear disk with z link then you have IDS.



That is what the zlink would look like

2014 - Unless it's a RS package. They have Z link.

Unless it's a 15-16 ;)



I need to ask this a different way I see.

So IDS = Z-link?

(you can beat me with a stick later!)

IDS is a system that monitors the four wheels, I don't believe there's sensors to so so in a rear end that has drum brakes, the Interactive Dynamic driving System is only available with disk brakes.

Kind of like abs, many pickup trucks with rear drums don't have abs available on the rear with drum brakes.

I don't believe there's rear disk without zlink, so therefore if you have rear disks and a zlink, you have IDS :)

Hope this helps

It did. I am trying to figure out which Bilsteins to get to go with my Eibachs. They list two types for the rear and the discriminator is the IDS.

I'll be doing that next year, I do have IDS, big money for the whole suspension though
