MarineRK09 is cool... so far.
Question Rear disk swap/suspension

So I have a 90 LX auto coupe. Got my hands on a set of rear arms from a 92 ex. Had them installed today and shop said they didn't fit and they had to disassemble them to get the disks on the car. Well they got them on there so I'm wondering what's going on? Also, I noticed the part numbers for ex LX suspensions are different. Can anyone tell me what differences there are in the suspensions besides the sway bar?

When you say rear "arms" do you mean the full knuckles with hubs, rotors and calipers? What year car was it from?

I was under the impression the trailing arms were different.

Before putting potentially untrue information out there, do a quick part number search on a site such as hondaautomotiveparts.com and double check the part numbers between both models you think are different. In this case, the trailing arms from a 1990 Accord LX and another with rear discs such as a 1993 Accord EX.

When I say arms i mean these guys but with disks (img stolen from timmy0toole's thread about rear disc conversion):


Sorry if thats the wrong terminology

Also, I did a check on hondapartsnow.com just out of curiosity and that where I learned about the part numbers differing in the first place. Just tryin to cover all my bases here.

I should clarify, by suspension I was referring to shocks and springs.

The EX springs were slightly stiffer and lower than DX/LX springs. Not really enough that you notice much, but it's there. The shocks were slightly different to accommodate this. The difference is so minimal that the aftermarket usually doesn't denote the difference and uses one part to cover both applications.

Gotcha! thanks!

Now in regards to the brake swap: Do you have any idea what it could be that "didnt fit"?

Going back to the second question in my first post; what year were the parts from?
