Vigor brake swap - will the whole knuckle swap over?

Reason I ask is I'll be replacing pretty much all of my front suspension anyway, so it would be easier for me to just swap in a Vigor knuckle with it's bigger caliper/rotors all in one fell swoop.

If a bearing or two is bad, I'm fine with that. I can just tear it back apart and swap those out. But since I have everything apart I think it's worth a go if the knuckles are the same.

Should work fine. I did that with '99 CL knuckles. I got the bigger brake diameter with the rotor over hub and kept the 4 bolt pattern.

If you have the stock drums, do the rear brakes too. When I did it I ended up with too much forward brake bias and the fronts would lock up too easily. Unbalanced brakes really hurt brake performance, and can make it handle badly under braking.

Are the 3.0 CL or Vigor rear calipers larger than the standard CB calipers?

They really won't be that much larger if they are. Honda used almost the same rear caliper across a ton of models in the 90s and early 00s.
