    I know what you are saying. Looks like your race is still on the shaft. The shaft should not have any tapering on it like the pic portrays. it should just be a long shaft=== and not ==< catch my drift?

    Thats why I was asking if you can see the ball bearings exposed on the accord wheel bearing. the rear of both wheel bearings should look the same. If the accord one looks different then your race is still on the shaft.

    Take lots of pb blaster and try to take off the race, being careful not to score the shaft at all.

    More pictures should help us too. Trust me I had the same problem. The accord bearing came off like butter, but the rear race was stuck on the shaft.

                          Pics on the DIY are broken, anyone got working pics?

                          Why shouldn't you use 94-97 EX rear discs if you have an LX and want to do the 5-lug? As I understood it, the rear end from 90 to 97 were basically identical....
