    Ok, I've been reading the threads on disc brake swaps, and there seems to be a bit of a discrepancy on what parts I need. some have said that I can use my existing trailing arms. If this is true, that would be great - it's less stuff to ship, and I won't need an alignment afterwards. Can anyone confirn that the discs and calipers from a 94-01 Integra fit on Civic EG trailing arms? What is the complete list of parts that I should request from the seller?

    Yes you can use your existing trailing arms.

    Pros:
    alignment won't be off as you aren't messing with the compensator arm
    as you said, less to pay in shipping.
    fewer bolts to mess with with

    Cons:
    the torx bolts strip very easily (have eight new ones ready)
    you still need new brake lines and e-brake cable.
    all the bolt are inaide the trailing arm, and accessing them sucks, especially if they strip.

    Here's my fun time doing it...http://www.hondaswap.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=26813
