    rep goes by post count and if someone gives you rep.. whether it be positive or negative.. click usercp to see if anyone has given you any

    to start posting on other things , find the correct forum and click "new thread".. and dont threadjack other people

    also, be sure to read the date when replying to threads.. some may be old, really old.. dont set the record

    if you can get an impact wrench chordless or compressor use that....the acual size is a 36mm. one you get that off you have to pop out your upper ball join and lower ball joint. once you have done that take off the caliper and place is somewhere secure. the whole steering knuckle will come out. get it to a hydrolic press. you have to press the hub assembly and stuff off with a hydro press. also there will be either as 12 point or a 6 point 10mm socket on the back of the assembly you have to take off.... let me tell you it is a bitch to do. its easier to just let a shop do it, but if you dont have the money to let them do it...there is how you do it


    the axle might be stubborn lightly hammer it out of the splines. a haynes repair manual is roughly 18 bucks, and tells you how to do it step by step.....or if you have a chiltons repair manual they are better the chiltons covers all honda accords and honda preluds from like 84-96 or something.
    good luck

    I just did my front brakes on my 97 accord and let me tell you getting that freakin nut off is a task i never want to do again.. I took me about 30 minutes per-side to get that off, if you haven't already use some Pb blaster and soak that mofo. Just keep trying and you'll get it off eventualy!

    As for the swap, if you are looking to boost then i would vote an F22b1 out of a 94-97 Accord EX, if not then i would go with the H22a Red top lsd tranny engine, the h22a might have to have engine mounts if im correct i don't remember right off the top of my head but the f22 should be a bolt up, correct me if im wrong Techs.
