Hi Guy,
Not sure if this question has been mentioned or not but I cannot find anything in the forum or anyone getting back to me about this that I have reached out too.
I am wondering if anyone has upgraded their suspension, rotors, brakes and rims yet for the 2015 LTZ 2.0's.

I have done a little bit of homework but hit a dead end and as far as I got some people talked about using the 2016 Camaro suspension, rotors, brakes and rims n their Malibus but I never found out what parts or anything.
So I am looking to upgrade the car for street driving and track racing.
If anyone has any information and which parts please share if you can.
Thanks

Did you figure out the upgrade the suspension, rotors, brakes and rims yet for the 2015 LTZ 2.0's. ?? I am interested in doing the same and also hit a dead end

It doesn't seem that owner ever figured anything out. Perhaps they will update.

I think the closet I am getting is maybe going with the Buick regal Brembo's package, correct me if I am wrong but I believe the regals and malibu's have the same sizes
Yes, the buick brembos fit but you have to either cut your backing plates or use the buick ones. No line changes are needed. Bolt up and go, I have them on my car. Spacing for the wheels is another matter, you have to have 19" wheels and the OEM ones need a 1" spacer. My aftermarket wheels only needed a 5mm spacer but the offset is different.

are you having issues with your OEM brakes on your 2015 LTZ with turbo...your OEMs should be larger than the OEMs on the regular Malibus...so do you need more braking or do you just want to change 'em...

when driving the GF's 2013 Malibu 3LT with the 2.0T I have never felt like the brakes weren't up to the task but I also updated the tires to Continental DWS-06s which are a huge upgrade from the OEM Good years...don't forget tires are part of the stopping ability equation when considering changing out parts...

with my CTS Sport Wagon, I have the smaller of the two brake packages and I would love the larger set but the timing, price of new rotors, calipers, pads, larger wheels and tires to accommodate the larger calipers and rotors have kept me from making the changeover for the small upgrade in stopping ability
