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 harshness.

Just a guess, if you were to buy that kit and some mounting brackets for the calipers that are OEM for the cruze, you could probably just screw everything together and go.

That's what I was ultimately thinking. Pricing it through gm parts direct is a pita, but doable. It says the hub mount is different though.

A lot of sonic guys have had nothing but issues with that kit.

First which rear tear end do you have on your Cruze?

Its a 2013 Lt rs. I know that there were two different axles used on that. Don't know what I have outside of that.

I believe I read some discussion before that you can convert to rear disk by using parts from a rear disk equipped cruze. May want to check into that rather than spending money on a aftermarket kit.

Is that for people who don't have the Z Link axle or for people who do?

That's what I had priced out some time ago. All o.e. ended up in the 6-700 range.

Yea if you buy all new dealer parts it's in the high 700s you can buy a rear end for around 4 or less or find a part out like I did

Okay. I might have to holler at lkq sometime and have one shipped to my shop.


I should say after I get other things straightened out.

I almost did this some time ago, but then something surfaced about that not even working for some crazy reason.
