    Rear discs- the easiest way is to get the trailing arms, brake lines and e-brake cables from another 92-00 Civic or 94-01 Integra and bolt them all up. Get the 4040 proportioning valve if you can find it.

    As far as power steering, you should be able to use the pump and pulley from the K block, then hook the hoses up to the power steering rack in your EK.

    you can drop the tank and dump it... or you can siphon it out through the filler tube (you wont get it all but should get most of it)

    There should be a drain plug. I know for sure that 90-93 Accords and 88-95 Civics have this.

    Also, the way the filler tube is designed, it's VERY hard to get a siphon tube in there.

    your subframe needs to be replaced. You need to find an ex chassis that has power steering. Hybrid racing does have the kit needed for the swap but unless you have the subframe for it, the swap is pointless.
