What all do I need for parts, and also what years of integras will work for me? I have a '91 HF and want to do a rear disc conversion and switch over to the bigger front brakes too. Any help would be great, thanks.

You can pull from any DA integra. Thats 90-93 if i'm not mistaken.

For the fronts you will need:

- nuckles
- calipers
- flex lines
- rotors
* stabi bar

For the rears you will need:

- trailing arms
- calipers
- flex lines
- rotors
- parking brake cables
* lower arm
* stabi bar

Also:
- Master cylinder, as it has a different bore to accomodate for different caliper piston sizes.
-Proportioning valve.

Note: the DA knuckles are taller from lower ball joint to upper ball joint. Thus when installed at the same ride height your front uper arm will have a higher angle and thus will induce more negative camber. i forget how big the diff in height is, but i think its prob not a big deal unless your car is lowered quite a bit.

Oh wait, you have an HF. You better just grab everything from the front and rear suspension off of a DA integra. Your susp and brakes are so small right now, an upgrade to dx/si components will likely make a world of difference.

Ok, thanks for the info. I think i'm gonna do the brake conversion, camber kits and good alignment so i dont keep wearing on the tires, and put in all polyurathane bushings this winter. Any places where I can get this stuff cheap, but yet quality stuff, and any particular brands that work the best?

Is the rear disc conversion really necessary? I know the appearance of disc poking through the wheels is a bonus. Does the conversion require much effort? The larger disc up front would be nice, are they just a cross over? Bolt the SI's on and sell the HF discs?

Thanks for the help.

If you use a teg master cylinder, be sure to grab the brake booster too. The Integra master cylinder does not bolt up to the CRX one. You can use the 88 prelude MC, or one from an 88-91 Civic EX (15/16ths bore).

Hey guys, is this a good deal?, he is asking $100 plus the shipping. I asked to see some more pictures.

You are bidding on a complete rear disc brake setup from a 92 integra. This system will bolt right up too any crx or civic 88-91 or any 90-93 integra. This auction includes everything you need, calipers, trailing arms, e-brake cables, proportioning valve, master cylinder, control arms, ect... Only thing you will need is rotors and pads. Due to weight, UPS is required. Shipping will be around $60. Email me with any questions. Thanks for looking.

From what I was told, any rear disc brakes from 90-01 Integra, minus Type R, and any 90-00 civic with rear disc. If you have the trailing arm and the hub, that's all you need. Using your control arms they bolt right up. You will need the proper ebrake cables and the proper rubber brake hose for the caliper. I wish someone who verify that they don't offset the wheel tho. I can get my hands on some cheap trailing arms from a 94 teg, but HT said it would make my wheels stick out about 1/2 to 1 inch outwards on both sides. Does anyone know here?

I'm fairly certain that all the rear trailing arms are the same. I think that the spindles are the same as well, but I can't say for certain. i do know for certain that the upper and lower control arms do vary by chassis. So, just maintain your stock uca and lcas and you *should* be fine. Right now I'm using DC lcas on my crx because i got a new pair for free when it came time to replace the the old ones. i think the difference in length is negligible, might even give you some nice negative camber. Just need to align for toe and you're fine.

I saw a comparison of the rears a while ago.. the teg brakes do increase the rear track, but its an inch or a half inch total for the entire track (ie. moves the wheel out a 1/4" per side)

Ive got an 88 SI and it just 2 weeks ago completed my rear disk swap. Everything off the back of the DA bolts right up. Just make sure you grab the parking brake line because yours will not interchange. I learned the hard way. Find a teg without ABS and get its proportioning valve too but be careful those things suck coming off. In the worst case scenario it fine without the valve but you brakes will be just the same.

take the front nuckle and brake of any 90-93 Teg (got 1991 on mine)
keep the lower front CRX LCA
Master from a 1990 prélude 15/16 is bolt on on brake booster CRX (don't forget a 40/40 PV)
in back i use the OEM CRX swing arm because Teg 90-93 push the wheel out 1/8 inch and really don't whant that on CRX tigh fender! :p (i think if you take swing arm from 92 and up it work)
just swap the disck brake nuckle whit disk,caliper,back plate,hose brake and 90-91 CRX SI hand brake! :D
