    Trailing arm, pretty much whole assembly, 94-01 integra will work also, maybe prop valve im not too sure about that, but make sure u get the ebrake cables, and a bigger m/c isn't a bad idea.

    I think you need:

    Calipers, rotors, rear trailing arms, etc. from common fitment car.
    e-brake cable from civic EX w/abs or 99-00 Si (del sol and teg are too short iirc?)
    prop valve from car you get the brake shit from
    preferable upgrade to '91EX 15/16 master cylinder

    I might be wrong on some things, but I think that's a lot of the stuff.

    o ok ya I did a search but it wasn't very conclusive...OK so I can go to the junkyard and get the RTA...ebrake lines...rotors...calipers...prop valve...and master? and I can get all this from a 92-95 civic EX? or should I just get the 94-01 teggy....which would be better and how much should I expect to pay for all this...I only have about 150 dollars to spend on it :(

    I don't know how much of it you'll get for only 150 bones, but good luck.

    '92-'95 EX models only have rear discs if they have ABS.
