I made a how to on this subject
http://www.yourcobalt.com/forums/install-guides-diy/20614-how-change-your-speedometer-gauge-cluster.html

THIS HERE LIST IS THE ANSWER TO EVERYTHING REGARDING GAUGE CLUSTERS
  • If you get the same year speedometer as your car, it will work 100%
  • 05-06 work with 05-06 and everything will work fine
  • 05-06 will partly work with 07+, you will only see the mileage and temperature, you lose all other DIC features
  • 07 will work on 08+, everything will work except the TPMS light (TMPS still works though)
  • 08-10 work with 08-10, everything will work
  • LS/LT/SS/Sport doesn't matter. Sedan/Coupe doesn't matter.
  • The Speed and RPM will recalibrate and will show the correct information if changing from 120mph to 140/160
  • You can buy speedometers on ebay for $60-110 shipped
Back on topic..
This took about 1.5 hours. Paid ~ $90 shipped on ebay

Wait Wait Wait, why am I reading everywere else that the years have to match on the donor cluster, or the only things that will work are the odometer and temp??? Now I'm totally lost.

Today I replaced the cluster in my 06 LT with a cluster from an 05 SS, works fine, didn't really look at mpg or anything cause I can't get to my buttons but the lights, speed, fuel, rpm, temp, and overall mileage work just fine.
