    Ok i have a 92 Honda accord with a f22a1 in it and i also have a 93 prelude in running condition but it has a salvage title and is covered in bondo from some one beating the shit out of it... i was thinking about swapping the hole front and rear breaks and hub assembly, sway bars and possibly abs as well. i was wondering if any one has done this before or attempted it any feed back would be nice. and has any one heard of a 92 accord with a 93 prelude front end conversion.

    I've heard of knuckle conversions; but I'd double check the back(I know some Preludes had different rear suspensions, especially SH trim).

    As for swapping ABS, I wouldn't bother unless the Accord already has it.

    Yeah as for that no the swap will not work the hubs will not fit in the lower controll arm and if you use the preludes they will fit with a little love but then the accord sway bar wont mount up right and yes i tryed all of it do not try doing this unles you want to waste a hole bunch of time

    OK so a year later i am going to do this again and i am pretty sure that i can make this work. The only problem i had before was that once i got the prelude lower control arm on, hub and knuckle on and the prelude sway bar mounted. (which is bigger around and i could not use the prelude lower control arm without it) I realized that the sway bar was hitting the shock ever so slightly, for those of you who know the prelude it has essentially a tie rod end that attaches to the sway bar, and only two bushings instead of four that attach to the control arm so it can sit at a angle instead of straight up and down. So i am going to get new rotors and ceramic pads (i work at a parts store so not bad for me) and put it back on when i get a couple days off, and just heat up the sway bar and bend it just a little so it wont touch. And i think this will be a feasible swap. At the moment i am only going to do the front. And as i am doing with this i will take pics and then do a wright up on how to do the swap, and once i look and compare the rear end i will do the same for that.
