I recently purchased a 2012 Cruze LTZ with sport suspension (XJ2, pre-72XXXX) for my daughter to drive around town and to school. I bought this car knowing it basically needs all of the suspension replaced (control arms, sway links, bushings, struts, shocks, watts link/ bar bushings, as well as steering components). Considering the car was extremely clean inside and out, this is something I was willing to commit to.
After searching for parts on rock, it appears there are not readily available loaded struts for this suspension. After searching around I have found several posts of people looking to make their basic setup to sport, anyone have any exp with changing their sport to basic? From what I can tell the main difference is in regard to the ride height (shorter stiffer spring on struts), it looks like it uses the same control arms and sway links, is there any other differences up front or things I need to worry about (after I replace everything its going to be aligned)?
Any help or info would be appreciated, thanks.
