    does putting the back brakes of an acura intergra (rear linkage and the rest) make a difference in the braking of a honda crx....same kind of question ...does it make a difference on the front brakes (putting on civic brakes) changing the whole brake system in the front...does it help or change the braking capabilities

    if anything the upgrade to the front discs makes a larger differnece. keep in mind 70-80% of the braking is done by the front brakes. converting to rear discs is neat but not really needed.

    Additionally, is it possible to put the front calipers on the rear??? As in buying front calipers and installing them on the rear (not swap the fronts to the rear - just to be clear). Maybe this is a dumb question but the reason I ask is because the rears loaded calipers (or not loaded) are way more expensive than fronts - they're (the rear calipers) also a smaller size and I thought uniformity would be easier when changing pads... Just wondering. Dave

    Not possible without a LOT of fab work.
