    1992 Honda Accord LX, w/H22A automatic, Front Discs, Rear Drums, non-ABS

    My brakes just ain't good enough for my chariot. I do mostly town driving, and they're fine. But when I hit the freeway, watch out. The H22 can get me scooting pretty well, so I need to mash em once in a while.

    Couple of questions:
    Where do you look to see which style of caliper you have? There are two for my model car.

    Should I turn my stock rotors, or buy Brembo blanks?

    Is Hawk HPS the best, and where do I get them?

    Are there any performance shoes for the rear that I can buy?

    I am a very competent brake person, and I have access to the equipment to turn my own shit. I could do the brakes in a few hours, but I wanna get the best shit I can to complete the job. My rotors need turned bad, and the rear I'm gonna look at tonight.

    Thanks in Advance, Merry Christmas.

    i would just try better pads first. that will help a great deal. as for the rotors, if the oems are still fine and just need to be cut and you can do it, just stick with that.

    if you want bigger brakes, look at the accord wagon brakes.

    cool, I still have to check the rotor thickness. How about the rear?

    Best deal I found for my Accord when I was looking at Hawk HPS pads was at http://www.kingmotorsports.com

    They stopped great and didn't dust up at all.
