    have a 90 accord ex with drums brakes in the back and found a nice deal on some disk brakes for the rear like $50 for both sides with the whole complete set up and was wondering is it worth changing and will it be hard thing to do?

    I thought all EX Accords had 4 wheel discs from the factory? I know my 94 EX did...

    Huh, I did not realize that.

    Anyways, here's a write-up on an Accord rear-disk conversion. It's for 94-97 model, but it should help you get the gist of what all is involved.

    Is it a rear disc setup from the same chassis Accord? If so it's basically a direct bolt on process and should improve your braking power at least to some degree. If nothing else it should give you a firmer brake pedal.
