my coupe has pretty much the same setup as yours but 93 wagon rotor cause i am still HOR
Ok ill look at the stamp when I go to the yard, I need t25.. Ok got it, and about matchin them with the rotors, well shit I hope they won't b all spongy, ill be gettin I listed, wag bracket, and caliper, which should say t25 on it.

I got my set of napa rotors for $60. Theyre actually more expensive but i got a 50% discount through school. Anyways i have really been hard on them. And they still work great. with no warpage of cracking. Cracking is really more relevent in cross drilled rotors.

Okay by no means do to much about brakes, but my old rotors cracked, don't mind keeping the hor setup. I was thinking about getting some brembo blanks and some decent pades. Will this help my braking any? Or do I need to upgrade to some bigger rotors, and it seems like if I get bigger rotors the caliper need to be changed also?

hmm.. not really wanting to go 5 lug.. i already have a nice set of 17" wheels that are 4 lug LOL.. plus then i'd need to go 5 lug in the rear as well LOL

i'm mainly interested in the CL brakes to make changing brake rotors easier.. that hub over rotor design is shit.. rotor over hub is much better. dont know what honda was thinking when they did the HoR.

well, you did explain it backwards...

the cb7 comes with a hub over rotor design, the CL is a rotor over hub design. When the rotor is over the hub, its a floating rotor (easy to take off), when it is hub over rotor, the rotor is bolted to the car.
