Suspension & Brakes - Sonic/Cruze 12" Front Brake Kit
In stock form your Sonic/Cruze has 11" rotors and single piston cast iron brake calipers. This is a far cry from a performance braking system and barely meets what we would consider minimum requirements to stop the car. ZZPerformance is proud to solve that deficiency with an affordable brake upgrade kit.
  • Easy to install
  • Twin piston aluminum calipers.
  • 12" Cross drilled and slotted zinc coated Rotors. 1" Larger than stock
  • Shaves 8 pounds off the factory brake setup, saving you fuel and increasing handling
  • Easy Install. No Special tools required. Just knowledge of bleeding brakes.
  • Tested and fit on 17" wheels.
  • Cruze kit only works with 1st gen 2011-2016 (2016 Limited models only).

ZZP doesn't disappoint

Parts are of quality as expected. Others have mentioned in previous reviews that the backing plate will need to be trimmed in order to clear the larger rotors. While this is true, on installation, make sure to trim a little extra around the caliper mounting area as well. Other than that, installation is plug and play. Pairs perfectly with the rear disc conversion on the cruze. 10/10.

Good brakes are a headrush

No joke, got a pretty good headrush when I was breaking in the pads. Install was a bit more involved than I was expecting, mostly due to have to trim the dust covers to fit the new oversized rotors. Other than that, it was mostly straightforward. They stop very good, and have a little less pedal sensitivity than I'm accustomed to, which may be solved by braided steel lines.
