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).

Missing the mark

Got the kit and overall it does improve braking outside in many sectors. Pros: shortens braking distance. Cooling over stock. Less brake fade on extended use. These areas outshine stock values on the double. Cons: not lighter in weight over stock, but its gains mentioned above more than covers it. Pad coverage leaves 1cm of unused surface, this leaves performance off the table and causes an unsightly appearance after use. I can imagine it will get worse over time. Modification required: removal of the brake dust Shield on the Cruze. Nothing else. Notes: clears 17 inch rpf1 rims, Cruze.

Really happy with the overall experience. Install was straight forward and the performance is as expected. Car is more enjoyable and safer to drive. Well worth the money.

Great stopping power, but I ran into an installation issue.

When I bought this larger brake kit last year the online store still advertised this as working on 16 inch rims. I had my trusted mechanic install the brake kit and when he drove it out of the garage, the calipers grinded against my rims. We managed to get the 12" kit to play nicely with my summer & winter rims by grinding down the heat fins on the rotors. This modification hasn't adversely affected my Sonic's stopping power. Unless I was to take this on a track, I doubt the heat buildup will ever be an issue with the grinded down heat fins due to the slotted rotors. Overall, despite wrongly being advertised as fitting 16" rims (this error is now fixed, thanks!) this big brake upgrade kit is an amazing upgrade for any Chevy Sonic!
