    The AEM kit if for the front, and if you drive a newer (after something like 1986) Honda you have front discs. There are better brake kits some of them are made by http://www.haprecycling.com and http://www.fastbrakes.com they will fit under 15" rims and come with Wilwood 4 pot calipers. Where the AEM kit cost you your first born child to get 4 pot calipers.

    as far as rear's go, i got mine off a jdm civic... the conversion was quite easy. here is a good link about the conversion... note, he did not mention the difficulty of hooking up that damn e-brake... grr, took me 30 mins and 3 bloody knuckles :p

    EDIT:
    forgot to put the link ;)

    There is an article here at HondaSwap about a rear drum to disc conversion. READ IT!
