with the dual pistons, the larger of the 2 would be on the bottom which doesnt allow full contact of the top piston.

Unless you can mount them on the opposite side, of a CB. Hopefully that made sense....

I think that's what people do (flip from left to right)

I really don't think all that trouble is worth it though

My friend had a 2002 Altima 3.5 SE which weighs like 300-400lbs more than a CB... all he did was upgrade the rotors + pads, and that thing stopped on a dime from like 120MPH back to back to back

Prelude caliper/rotors are the same size up front... u get Brembo blanks + nice pads... u don't need much... and u dont have to worry about calipers.

P5ylance is someone to admire P5ylance is someone to admire P5ylance is someone to admire
you can mount the legend caliper with the bleeder valve down and how its supposed to mount (but on our cars), and when it comes time to bleed it, all you need to do is remove the lower bolt holding the stuff in, loosen the top bolt, swing it up, stick a spare rotor or something solid in there to act as a rotor, and bleed normally.

mounting bleeder up will make it convenient, but it won't take advantage of the different sized pistons, IIRC.

For the sake of keeping this swap a direct bolt on mod,
Does anyone Actually know if the '00 V6 calipers provide the same performance as Vtec calipers.

If thats the case then this swap is a double win, you go 5 lug and get a brake upgrade.

I am dropping another question.
Who has used extended studs on these?

If you check autozone it says the fronts are bigger than the rear studs.
Thread Pitch is same 12x1.5 but the stud shoulder seems bigger.

I am looking to do my fronts as well, anyone know where I can get some extended studs to finish my wagon?

and able to answer my own question, figured I would post in here for those that try.

Knurl is 12.35 on front and 12.25 on rear.
just remember that, so when ordering your extended studs just make sure your lengths are the same.

have a pleasant day, compliments of Cici from Ichiba.

Bump for info. If u have abs, and do this swap, do u have to bleed the abs system first?


Some ppl say yes some say just bleed the brakes only.

ok, back from the dead. I'm going to the junk yard tomorrow. So what 6th gen accord should I be looking for it to be direct bolt on in the front? Is there a specific year (2001?), Obviously 5 lug spindle, v6? Coupe or non coupe?

Sorry but the pictures really confuse me.

Does anyone know if I'll have issues with using a front knuckle off an 03 Acura CL? It uses larger 11.8" rotors so I'm thinking in order to use my Legend GS 2 piston calipers, I'll have to use the CL front caliper brackets and pads.

What about the hub offset, will it still match the CB7 offset OK? I'm planning to run 2g 17" 5 spoke 01-03 TL-S wheels initially.

The rears I've got Prelude 97-01 hibs and 02 Accord V6 rotors.

The 97 to 01 prelude hubs... Type SH or Non-SH?

I tried using the Prelude hubs (bc Oddy hubs are hard to find) with CRV drums, but the drum does not sit fully flushed to the hub. (There's about a quarter-inch gap between the hub and the drum.)

Will I need to grind off a bit of the edges from the hubs to properly seat the drums onto the hubs?

Just also wondering if anyone else ran into this because my lugs have less to little thread for the rims to hang on to...
