Nope, but I'm curious as well, considering I'll eventually have to do these in a few years, when it is time.
One of these?You will require a tool to 'Screw in' the caliper piston.....otherwise a normal part replacement event.
Ohhh, now that's a neat one.....I don't know the span on the Cruze rear pistons though.......heck, I'd buy it just cause its cool.....likely fits one of my cars (except the Cruze.....eco...rear drums)
You might be able to have Autozone "borrow" one of those when you have to do your brakes. They do rent out a variety of tools at no charge as long as you return them.
143K miles and plenty of road salt.Made in Taiwan, do not use an impact wrench. A good high quality impact wrench can be adjusted to be a lot more kinder than a hand wrench. To me, this is another way of saying this is a piece of crap.
I only buy good tools, many well over 45-50 years old that provided years of good service, like this one.

Math says, this tool will more than pay for itself with only one use, then you will have it forever. With a clean piston, and a good screw, was very easy to turn. How many miles on these brakes, and do you live in a road salt area?
This applies to any rear disc brake system that does not use a 'Top Hat' type parking brake.Is this only for the Diesel cruze? I own gm vehicles all my life and most had rear disc and never need a tool to screw the piston in. Just pushed it in the same way as the front. I believe the parking brake is inside the disk and not using the actual brake disk you stop with.
