alright, so ive been reading this, and according to the information ive found, i can only do the rear disc conversion by using junkyard parts. I hate to say this but around my area there are never any cars newer than 1980 in the junkyards. and if there are, theyre already stripped.im doing a 5 lug swap/rear disc conversion. the 5 lug is pretty straight forward, i just need the rotor/hub to do it. for the rear disc conversion im having a couple issues. exactly what parts do i need? i have rear calipers, rear rotors, and the hubs. am i going to need trailing arms? hydraulic lines? i need a list of what i need so i can go into honda tomorrow and order everything.

if you look at page 4 you will find a diagram of the drum setup and the disc setup. you might (don't know what you've bought so far) have a the parts you need already.

In addition to what you already have, you will also need the rear knuckle from a rear disc CB7. The drum knuckles DO NOT have an accomodation for the rear caliper mounting.

Some people claim that 94-97 knuckles also work, but everyone I have run across places the lower control arms an additional inch apart. You can't get around that without machining the knuckle or changing the rear subframe. I have seen internet DIYs that did successfully use a 94-97 set of knuckles with no modification, so it is likely that there were just two slightly different rear suspensions.

If you are doing the rear 5 lug, it may also be possible to use the rear knuckles from a 1997-2001 Prelude.

There is a DIY on it here somewhere... I will see if I can find it.

The brake lines are different, so you will probably need those, and the e brake cables as well.

the CD knuckle is an inch longer, but i can work with the lower arms on a CB, as long as you have the longer bolt from a CD. Also, CD e-brake cables are too long to operate correctly, so stick with CB cables and everything should go smoothly.

When I had the CD knuckle, a longer bolt wasn't going to solve the problem. The front lower control arm lined up perfectly, but the rear control arm wanted to sit on the OUTSIDE of the rear subframe. That is where the change of rear subframe came in. You can either machine an inch off of the knuckle, so that the rear lower arm will sit in the right spot, you can change the rear lower subframe, which supposedly bolts up, so that you can accomodate the 1 inch spacing difference, or you can get a CB rear disk knuckle. A longer bolt wasn't going to solve the problem.

Also, the CD ebrake cables that I had bolted up to the CB chassis perfectly...

Odd... my swap used CD5 rear knuckles mated to my cb7 control arms and the only thing i needed was the longer bolt. If I was with my car i would photograph it and upload the pics.(spring break is next week, i'll have time to take photos) But, given my experience, CD knuckles can be used with the CB7 subframe.

Like I said before, there appears to be two different versions of CD rear suspensions. Mine wasn't going to fit a CB and there are people who have said that theirs did. Mine were from a coupe, although I have also seen at least one four door with the odd spacing as well.

Do you have problems finding replacement pads??? I called my local Advance Auto and they said they dont carry rear pads for the 90-93 accords.

i just did my conversion on the car today. the rear knuckle assemblys cost me 75 bucks, and it took an hour and a half to install them. i also got the ex rear swaybar and threw that on there also. pretty slick swap if u ask me. brakes seem better too.

I finally did my rear disc conversion. I did 4 projects in one since my car was gonna sit on the lift for a while. So I did a SS 2.5 exhaust with a header to muffler and I did a sus drop to 3 inches with AGx's and Tenz coilovers. Since my exhaust was off and my shocks where taken out I decided to do the rear drum to rear discs as well. I must say the most annoying part was the removal of the heat shields since most of the bolts was so rusted. Other then that it was a very very easy straight forward exchange. You must have a cordless impac gun. I really didnt car if the bolts broke since I cut the bottom shock bolts anyhow with new bolts on hand. I did motor mount inserts except for the front which I am waiting to buy from a Cb7tuner member and finally put my VC on







O yeah I had to change my Oil sensor since my oil light kicked in to ruin my weekend of work. You can see the little box on the ground

the obvious answer is that you have a leak on a line somewhere. check to make sure you didn't leave a bleeder valve open. also make sure your brake lines are attached correctly. when i did my swap my master cylinder took a crap so it may also be that. keep checking for leaks and get back to us.

can you tell me your method to bleeding the brakes? when doing the entire system you have to start from the wheel furthest from the master cylinder. then work you way towards the closest one.
