    i have a 96 civic hatch and i want to get upgraded brakes, front and rear. i looked around and havent found a brake conversion "complete list of required parts" from anywhere. from what i gathered, i would need: 96+ gsr front steering knuckle w/ rotors & calipers; 96+ gsr rear lower control arm w/ rotors & calipers; 99+ si e-brake cable, brake booster & master cylinder.

    -is there anything else i need?
    -would it be easier to get a complete 99+ si brake conversion instead of mixing it up with integra parts?
    -are the 96+ gsr and 99+ si brakes identical?
    -can i use the gsr rear sway bar? or si?
    -can i go with integra LS brakes? it would be cheaper, right?

    thanks for any help in advance

    you can't use integra Rear control arms on an EK.
    yes you can use a teg's rear sway bar IF your lower control arms have spots to mount endlinks.

    All teg brakes are the same, so you don't have to get a 96+

    For fronts, you need...
    Teg knucles, rotors, brackets, calipers, pads

    Integra/civic rear trailing arms with calipers, rotors, brackets, ect
    Ebrake cables
    Disc brake proportioning valve (civic/integra/del sol will all work if they were rear disc)
