You can just replace the dust boot and pack some grease in there but if you have been riding on torn boots for awhile you should replace the whole joint. Reason is that dirt gets in there and damages the ball and socket of the joint.

Busted... So what parts would you recomend for the front swap? Sounds like everything is a direct swap from a `97-01 Odyssey?

What calipers will work (front and rear)?

And what bolt pattern are the new hubs if you recall off hand.

for the front you can use everything that comes with the knuckles of the odyssey. this means the calipers and rotors as well. you can also use prelude VTEC calipers (doesn't matter what year just as long as it came from a VTEC prelude), legend calipers (like busted's setup), and even NSX calipers if you can get your hands on them. basically anything that is compatible with 11" rotor can be used.

as of now, you can only use the accord calipers in the rear. i haven't seen any other caliper swap...yet. i'm sure someone will be able to swap something else in there.

bolt pattern is 5x114.3mm. i learned this the hard way !

possibly the 97+ ITR caliper possibly, right? since the rear pads for the cb7 and ITR are the same part number, could you assume that the calipers are interchangable? i dont think that would necessarily be an "upgrade" but that goes the same for the 5th gen accord rear calipers.

busted, just like doing a rotor over hub conversion, can you use let's say a 97-up prelude hub for the 5-lug up front?! can it fit inside the accord bearing? why change the whole knuckle? just a thought since i was looking over the hub conversion and the 5-lug idea came about. is this possible?

5-lug Honda vehicles rock an 85mm bearing and 4-lug rock an 80mm bearing so the opening in the knuckle is not big enough to accept the larger diameter bearing.

i just put the prelude brg on the rear and with the accord nut it only goes on with 4 threads. so the prelude nut should fix this?

From what he had written about the DYI is that you could can use the Prelude spindle nut for the back with no problem at all and you'd need to do is make sure you hit it hard and stake it securely in that slot.

Bump! Nice DIY.

Question: Would I be able to do this swap if I purchased the "rear disc conversion" from TAS? Or would I have to do an OEM rear disc swap?

I always meant to ask. Why did you use the ITR rotors and not the prelude ones.

Bump for answer. I know it was said the Prelude rotors wont work. Why not?

Is it because the prelude rotor isn't tall enough, so it wont fit on all the way?

the rotor doesnt go in far enough so it will not fit with the stock accord caliper bracket.
there is a way of using the prelude rotor you just need to make a spacer to space the caliper out toward the rotor that way the caliper will be centered over the rotor that is what i did
