    i would like to upgrade my 96 civic dx front disc.
    i searched but only shows rear disc conversions.
    do i just change the rotors from the dx to Ex rotors?
    what else need to be done?

    You need to get the entire knuckle assy. To my knowledge integra calipers will not bolt up to civic spindles. This upgrade is well worth it btw.

    If im not mistaken, the EX and Si front brakes (on the 96-00 civics) are the same size, and the DX fronts are smaller. So you can upgrade to EX fronts seeing as they are more popular than the Si's.
