    You have to have the spindles, rotors calipers, brakelines ( from 92-95 Si), and ebrake cables ( from 92-95 Si). They will swap right on to your trailing arms.

    Doing it with just the spindles is a pain, and I would say your better off just getting the whole trailing arms, and bolting them on, but you'd still need the ebrake cables.

    That's what I've gathered so far. I'll soon be attempting the swap, from a 1994 GSR to a 1995 Civic Ex - I'll let you know how it goes.
    From what I can tell, the 4th gen, 5th gen, and 6th gen Civics all use the same rear suspension design, as well as the 2nd gen CRX, 2nd & 3rd gen Integras, and all Del Sols. some discs are bigger than others, though.
    all the parts that 92b16vx mentioned are must-haves. In addition, a lot of people recommend the rear disc proportioning valve (marked '4040'), and a few like to add a bigger master cylinder.

    The 88-00 rear discs are all 9.5 inch solid rotors, regardless of model...

    If you're going to replace the entire trailing arm, go ahead and change out the trailing arm bushings. It's worth the time and extra cash. Using the old broken ones will make the rear end of your car feel like crap.
