5 lug and disk conversion ?????

Is it possible to go to a all around disk and five lug? I've found conversions for five lug and for 4 lug disc. I just wanna know if its it's possible and how hard it is. If i should even do it, I mean I could just do one or the other annd if I decide to do that which one should I go with?

I believe you have to get the rear disc conversion before you can do the 5 lug swap. The hub on the rear disc is the part that is changed.

Sure you can. I just finished my 5lug swap. My car was a dx with rear drums. Swaped in rear disk from an se then the corresponding parts to make it 5 lug. Be ready to pay lots to convert.

It actually cost more then I thought it would. Lots of new parts were added.

Used odyssey front knuckles
used odyssey front calipers
new front slotted/drilled rotors
new odyssey brakes pads
new lower ball joints

used 93 se disk knuckles
new se calipers
new pads
new prelude hubs
new type r slotted/drilled rotors
new rear brake lines
new misc bolts, screws, and washers

new Tein basic coils
98 type r gun metal wheels

Here are the pics.

my old setup with drums. I was lowered with kyb agx and intrax springs.


I had to buy a rear disk setup so I replaced the whole rear assembly so I could get a rear swaybar. The calipers on the setup was shot so I ended up buying two new rear calipers.

my old setup


How it sits now





what I paid to get it done.
Used odyssey front knuckles $150 for the pair
used odyssey front calipers $100 for the pair
new front slotted/drilled rotors $100
new odyssey brakes pads $30
new lower ball joints $60

used 93 se disk knuckles $175 (really $325, paid a member on here $150 and never received them. Still haven't seen my refund or the knuckles. Needed rear disk so had to buy another set.)
new se calipers $275
new pads $25
new prelude hubs $150
new type r slotted/drilled rotors $100
new rear brake lines $45
new misc bolts, screws, and washers $100 all oem from Honda

98 type r gun metal wheels $450

1760=$17 take or minus a few dollars


Just be ready and know what your getting into. Depending on what you need to replace or don't use will be less.

I had just finish the swap and had only drove the car around the block a few times to see if it was running right then it went into storage. Will find out when I fully break in the rotors in the summer.
