hectic702: you can replace the master cylinder but it's not necessary (read below why). the fluid gets to the rear via brake lines just like it would on the drums. the drums are mainly hydrolic. the cable is just for the e-brake.

HondaFan81: i bought the whole set at a local junkyard. yes i retained the stock smaller brake master cylinder, brake booster and proportioning valve and i am happy with the results. any car would benefit from any upgraded parts but my stock setup all worked fine for me. the proportioning valve could make the most difference due to a better braking bias between the front and rear wheels. typically people use the prop valves off the DA integra RS (non-ABS) which are stamped 40/40. they are bolt on, but i find the current accord one to be fine. the EX/SE booster is the same i believe. the EX/SE master cyl is only larger by a few mm. it's not worth the effort unless your current set is already failing (we do have 12+ year old cars).

i have great braking feel up to now (it's been a year and 2 months now). it is more positive and responsive compared to the drums. what more when you upgrade to stainless steel lines; i don't have them though. going 65mph, i can lock up my 17's with 215/45 tires on the freeway.

i got lucky with my parts. it was all in good condition and complete down to every brake line i needed. as for the calipers, they were in decent condition so i didn't touch them. my rotors were pretty decent as well so there was no need to resurface them. when you get a set, i recommend that you change the pads, resurface the rotors, and overhaul the calipers just in case. you never know what car or condition they came out of. i chose not to do any due to the satisfactory condition my set was in. i'm still using the pads that they originally came with from the junkyard!

my buddy is going to be giving me his discs off of his 92 accord(what a dumbass) and i am going to be giving him my drums. my question is when swapping them will it unbolt and bolt up with no problems or is there different lines i need to use. he will be getting my whole drum setup and i am getting the entire disc setup. my lines are going to his car and his lines are coming to mine. please let me know ASAP becuase i am going to be doing it shortly

dang that's a really good deal and yes your friend is a dumbass for doing this. anyway yes it will unbolt and bolt up with no problems at all. you just have to make sure you remove the correct parts. don't forget that you will need the emergency brake cables on top of the regular brake lines. just remove the whole suspension assembly.

from the donor car, remove the:
-upper arms from the chassis
-WHOLE lower crossmember (so you can use the rear sway bar too!)
-trailing arm from the chassis (near the jackpoints along the sideskirts)
-regular brake lines
-emergency brake lines

of course there are obvious things you have to remove in order to remove the parts i just listed (like the exhaust heatshield in order to remove the emergency brake cables).

just remember that you CANNOT transfer over the ABS sensors and lines so just leave those in the donor car. cutting them might trigger the ABS light in the instrument cluster of the donor car. good luck man!

I swapped mine over, and i also upgrade my front brakes to the Ludevtec 11.1in rotors and calipers. I need a new Master cylinder!

on to another important question. i took all mine of the doner car along time ago, so i cant remember where the mounting points are for the sway bar, any help?

*edit*

Nevermind i know why i cant do it, i dont have the stabilizer brackets that the bushing a C clamp thingy attach to the chassy. ***!

THere is a nice set of these in the junkyard. I told him $240, and he said "per side maybe!".

How much did you pay for the rear disks?

an OEM bar can work if you swap over the rear crossmember as well. the 92-93 EX/SE crossmembers have the holes for the sway bar brackets. all trailing arms have a hole for a sway bar be it a DX, LX, EX, or SE etc.

note:
90-91 EX has a rear sway but are still drum brakes.
all DX/LX never came with a rear sway standard.
all accords with rear discs have rear swaybars.

BUMP for an old thread!! hehe I have a question for y'all...I'm getting a set of rear discs...Comes with upper arms, brake lines, etc etc EXCEPT for trailing arms...My friend told me that the discs will bolt up fine with the trailing arms that I have now (w/ drums) He said that he's done some research, and the part number for trailing arms w/ drums are the same with the ones w/ discs...

Jus curious if anyone can plz confirm me on this matter...I jus want to make sure that these babies will bolt up fine on my trailing arms, so that way I won't have to look for trailing arms for discs..hehehe can anyone plz help me on this?? Thx in advance! Oh and pic below



Ronald

Yeah, it will be fine. Just more of a hassle to bolt them up.

yeah ronald the trailing arms are the same but it will be a bit harder to do, but not impossible. the ebrake cables on the drums go through the trailing arms unlike the cables on the discs which only outline the trailing arms. other than that and some more bolting and unbolting, you should be fine!

good luck with the install and post pics when done!

btw, it looks like the set you have in the pic is missing the screws that holds the rotors to the hub. make sure to not forget that .
