    an integra rear end thats about it lol everything bolts right up
    i did it on my 99 civic coupe i ran into a problem with the lower control arms but the 92 - 95 should have no difference - use everything from the integra it's a bitch to take that sh-t apart trailing arm, brake lines, e brake cables, and so on

    ok i have some stuff and i need to know for sure. i have a 93 civic dx and i have the rear trailing arms and upper and lower control arms from a 92 intergra and also the wheel bearing hub assembly. do i just need to swap the disc hub on to the civic trailing arms, or do i need to swap the trailing arms also form the integra ?? someone please help !!! also i dont have axcess to a dc integra so that is out of the question.

    also a side note what about the front brakes will swap from a 92 integra to a 93 civic dx ???

    well i can tell you one thing your never going to get the rear hub off the trailing arm the bolts lock up and they strip out when you try to get them off
    try to use the trailing arm with the hub on it already

    so then according to what i just read the brakes of a 90-93 integra fit into an eg chassis without any modifications, (to the rear) right, well i got a question on the front brakes, what exactly do i have to change for the front brakes to work.
