    i wanted to upgarde my brakes on my 89 civic hatch and was wondering what brake booster/ MC combo i could use?

    i was thinking of useing a gsr MC and brake booster but was wondering if i need to re\route ne of the lines and such.

    any other suggestions other than changing pads and rotors?

    use a 90-91 EX brake MC, bolts right in. One from a DA I believe will also work, but one line has to be bent a little.

    buy a real MC like a wilwood or some thing and get rid of the booster

    yes not on my crx yet but i did it on my ek and i loved it you dont need power brakes unless you are driving a cadilac at 30mph down the highway on a sunday drive. Your pedal feal will be great and you will feal more conected to you brakes.

    instead of buying a wilwood mc, if you wanted no power brakes just unhook the vacuum hose...
