    I have a 1995 civic dx and I am wondering if I can move my front rotors and calipers to the back (which are now drum) when I install an AEM big brakes for the front? Is this even possible? :unsure: Will it work? Please help!

    I don't think it will, but that is just my guess. I believe you have to find another car in a junkyard that has rearbreaks already, like an acura or something and then they should bolt on...but I forget I was going to do this myself, but its been so long sence I looked into it, anyone wanna help me out here?

    a you would not be able to have an E brake,
    b, the fronts are pretty massive for the backs.

    My buddy did it to his car, he took the whole rear suspension from an acura integra and put in on his hatch. When i mean whole thing i mean the entire control arm, brakes and frame section that is bolted to the chassis. Thats the only way u can do it too, cuz the parking brake is mechanical and u have to have the disc brake system that is built to work with the parking brake line from the factory.

    yeah man- don't try to move the fronts to the back. look into a rear-dics conversion.

    if you have an EG-chassis, the del sol si/vtec, EG civic si, and DC2 gsr are the easiest to score and hook up
