Now that I think about it, I've read that one can get the suspension from a 6st V6 accord to make the five lug conversion, so my question is what RLCA should I get since I am planing the conversion, the 90-93 or 97-02?

Non-adjustable rear lower control arms are '90-'93 Accord specific as the track is wider in the '94-'97. The length of the control arms accommodates this.


Why are you under the impression that because the 6th generation Accord front knuckles (since we're on this topic it's ONLY the '00-'02 Accord V6/'00-'03 TL/CL that have "S5" stamped on the back of them) can be used that it should have any implications on the rear lower control arms?

I am under the impression that the 6st gen Accord is a one-for-one swap with the one onn the cb7... I have read so many different way to go about that right now right now I am a lot a bit obscuredon the whole "5 lug+rear disc" I have a few junk yard around where I'm stationed at (NC), so which ever way I go I am sure they'll have all the pieces I need, all I have to do is STOP reading so much about it!

No, you need to read reliable sources like the DIY guides. The one you're referring to is by da9b16 (Lee) and refers to the front knuckles of certain 6th generation Accords. Reread it very carefully before going out and buying something.

This thread doesn't have anything to do with that, though, so if you have further questions on the matter then refer them to the appropriate threads.

I've been seeing Jarrett post a lot lately. He's also answered a lot of asinine questions and very basic ones as well. Seriously guys beginners especially, go to every single "TOPIC" sub forum and read the "stickies" one by one. Read every last drop. I did once and i forgot most of it but at least the rhetorical stuff isn't asked.

Lower tie bar... Which is pretty much useless.

On our rear subframe design the brace is redundant. In effect you're making it marginally stronger, but not as much as you would if it were a solid design without pivots or threads. Even then, it's not tying in an additional point. Not worth it.
