Eudm Accord front 5-lug swap

Ok guys, I live in Europe and would like to do a 5-lug swap.
I have been looking at 95-97 Shuttle (same as Odyssey) knuckles but can't find reasonably priced ones. 600€ for a pair is laughable.
Same goes for 01-02 Accord V6.

I found that the 01-02 eudm 2.3 accord has 5-lug.
Does anyone know if the knuckles would fit my '92?

If I look around for a while I could maybe find a whole car for that price and use the shortblock and some other parts on my car. I could then sell all parts I don't need.

very good question, I would assume the 01-02 eudm 2.3 accord would work. Looks like you might be the first to try.

I would bet that the fit or “bolt up” ok. But the axle splining might be the difference.

Looking at these drawings you might be right

Do you have an 01-03 Acura TL/CL there? I swapped the front knuckles off an 03 CL and they worked perfectly. You have to grab the caliper anchor brackets though since the rotors are a bit larger at 11.8" vs. 11.1" and you'll need a minimum of a 16" wheel to clear those brakes.

I paired it up with some Legend GS 2 piston calipers, but using a Wagon caliper, Prelude VTEC or Acura Vigor/3.0CL caliper will work also.

When I did my 5 lug swap, from what I remeber I just changed the hubs, rotors and brakes on the stock knuckles. I had rear discs though.

The Euro Accord of that gen (CH chassis) shares a lot of commonality with the 99-03 TL and CL. The spindles should fit the CB chassis. I am not sure if the ball joints are different sizes however.

@Losiracer2: we have no Acura's over here. Your setup sounds nice though

@gloryaccordy: what hubs did you use? I have rear disc also.

@SSMAccord: do you mean the type R?

It's just difficult to find parts for a reasonable price here. Not many Honda's where sold here and most will have been scrapped or exported by now.

You will definitely need new hubs. I'm almost certain I used BB6 Prelude hubs all around.

The Type-R was one of the CH variants that had 5 lug hubs. Some of the other trim levels had 5 lug hubs and the lower trim levels had 4 lug hubs. I am not sure of how the matrix breaks down for those. Type-R versions would have 2 piston calipers and 11.8" front brake rotors as well.

If you search Ebay.co.uk for Honda Accord Uprights or hubs there are knuckles that represent the parts that would fit. At least there are as of the moment that I am typing this.

Thx for the replies. I found the type R knuckles on eBay, but we don't know if the balljoints would fit. I would also have to find some calipers and brackets. Would 11.8" rotors work with 16" Wheels? I don't really want to go 17"

Maybe it's easier to buy 4 new bb6 hubs, front bb6 rotors, rear integra rotors, pads and source some used calipers and brackets.

I located Shuttle knuckles, hub, bearing and rotors for 240€. Would 97-01 prelude vtec calipers and brackets work with these?

Still tempted to buy the type R knuckles though. But does anybody know if i can run them with 16" Wheels?
