rear drum to disk converion?

Postby 1991civicsi » Sun Jul 06, 2003 6:42 am

Can the rear disks off a 91 crx si be bolted onto my civic si (drum brakes) with no mods??

It should fit with no prob since the rears of both cars are the same.

I thought you needed to swap from a 90-93 Integra. Is there a reason why I thought that or am I just completely and absolutely in my own little world over here.

I'm contemplating this myself since my front rotors are royally fucked anyhow. May as well go all out.

you can do either but the integra setup is a little superior and much easier to come by, i spent a total of 300 on mine including both front knuckles, both rear trailing arms, master cylinder, prop valve, four new rotors, four rebuilt calipers and new pads all the way around, im VERY happy with my integra setup. next is slotted rotors and steel braided lines and maybe some ebc green stuff or some kind of performance pad

So it's better to swap the front knuckles as well?

I'm guessing there's not any improvement from swapping the front trailing arms/rotors along with the rears?

yes there is. if you dont than your brake bias will be all wrong resulting in your front brakes locking up way before your rears would ever

See that's what I figured, but none of the how-tos I've read even made a slight mention of swapping out the fronts along with the rears, so I thought maybe the fronts were identical or something.

So I need steering knuckles, trailing arms, brake pads, calipers and rotors for the front, right? Anything else?

its not called the trailing arm on the front suspension.
It has a double wishbone front.
Upper arms should switch over just fine but new knuckle and brake assembly for fronts. New proportioning valve is necessary and larger brake booster/master cylinder do not have to be done but you wont notice a difference without upgrading it.

What's it called if it's not called a trailing arm? Just curious.

I went to the local junk yard and picked up the whole rear assembly out of a 91 integra including the struts for this swap. After reading this Im assuming I should use the struts in my 90 DX?... Any help would be great.
