I dont think I've ever seen stock rear disc brakes on accords other than the 92-93 EX models.

I have decided to stick to stock. I am not a racer or an Auto X driver. I love my accord and it's my daily driver. It's kinda silly to upgrade my brakes when it does a good job already. Even with my H22A and all the power that comes with it, she stops smoothly and quickly. Thanks for all your feedback.

I have the brembo o.e. cross drilled and slotted rotors, and have had them for 2 years. GREAT investment, but you do have to match the right pads. I used the AEM ones for a while, great pads, then just went and got some crappy cheap ones, WHAT A MISTAKE... lol, they glazed over under some heavy braking. After using regular cheap-o pads 2 times now, my rotors need to be cut bad. I currently go to school @ UTI and thankfully have access to an on car brake lathe. Like other people said in this thread, because of our retarted hub-over-rotor design, the only way to have them cut is in that way. I have been seriously pondering this conversion, quick question if anyone has the answer... the cl has the same 4x114.3 bolt pattern right?

I knew because that's what the ebay company said they did. That was their thing. They took quality blanks and modified them. I paid $100 shipped for the pair. At the time, I thought it was a great deal. I suppose it was fair, but you can probably find them cheaper elsewhere.

im confused as to why everyone says its a pain in the ass to change the rotors on the 90-91's. i put new rotors on the rear today and quite literaly, with the exception of having to use an impact driver to get the two screws out, the job took about 1/2 hour. nothing had to be pressed out and basically was the simplest bolt/swap i've done yet. im doing the front next weekend, so maybe i'll find the 'pressed out' thing then...

so, why am i confused about all this trauma? i'm not trying to flame anyone, just wondering. honest.

EDIT!!...hit the mother of all potholes last night and bent my front wheel. got a chance to look at the rotor on the front and can see now what 'the pain in the ass' part is. excellent info, now i know i have to take them in to get pressed. I love this site!!

oops, got my rotors from R1 Concepts in Anaheim. They are an e-bay seller and do the drilling and slotting themselves. unlike most e-bay sellers, this place actually has an office where you can go and see them and see the shop where they do the work. I was impressed. Set for my wagon was $210 w/ tax.

Coolest thing was most of the people working there were Honda/Acura drivers.

OK I don't know if anyone has done this yet, but Im switching my brake system over to a 1994 Vigor's.

All u need is: Vigor Calipers, Brackets, Rotors, Pads. Same brake system as in the Acura NSX minus the prop valve and hydraulic assist.

Use all original Honda/Acura parts, they are heat-treated unlike some other "performance" brake systems.

Its costly, but will make u kiss the windshield everytime u stop.

I put new brakes on the car a month ago. I'm running powerslot rotors and Wagner Thermo Quiet Ceramic pads front and back. The fronts are rotor over hub with Prelude SR-V calipers. Best setup I've had yet in 7 yrs between two different accords.

I replaced my fronts with Brembo Vented Blanks + EBC Green stuff pads and they work great, when cold + wet they arent that great but once they are warm its incredible...I suggest this for a budget setup....Its somewhere around 200-300 bucks total

I just had my calipers swapped to the '06 CRV's and the break's improved alot.
I'm not sure if this way will work in the US because the CRVs here are MIT.
In Taiwan, cb7 drivers usually swap the calipers to the Preludes' or CRVs'.
We also have the hubs/bearings swapped to the 6th gen. Accords'
to solve the shaking problem.

I never heard of CRV calipers being used... interesting. It's great having you guys from Taiwan here! The usual US approaches are getting stale... I'm sure there are lots of things you guys do that we haven't thought of yet!

Prelude calipers have been done, I believe. I want to do the Acura CL setup. 11.1" rotors and I believe bigger calipers... also rotor over hub, which makes rotor changing easier (I didn't read anything above, so i'm sure this was already said )

Before you want to try the CRV calipers, you must have your hub upgraded first.
Also, the rotors have to be more than 286mm if I remember correctly.
Actually I have 303mm rotors in 16" rims and it doesn't even FULL.

djcaz_aom seems to have made some friends! djcaz_aom seems to have made some friends!
EBC Front Rotors $143
Autozone Lifetime semi-ceramic Gold brake pads $32 (Never pay for pads again!!!)
Stops on a dime.
Another thing to consider is the fact that brakes are only part of the equation. Your tires have alot more to do with excellent braking. If you have no grip, then you won't even stop. Upgraded brakes offer better resistance to fading. If you are going to do a good upgrade, don't forget to upgrade the brake fluid. If you don't have ABS, then consider DOT 5, otherwise move up to DOT 4 with a higher boiling point.
Hope this helps some.
