    I have everything I need except rear brake hoses.

    I know you can use the 99-00 si hoses, could I use integra rear brake hoses?
    There is an insane amount of integras in the local junkyard and I was wondering if I could use those cause I can get them for cheap.
    This is on a 97 EX coupe.


    Thanks

    They are different, in length. Are you talking about the soft line from the hard line to the caliper?

    I'm just going to get the integra brake hoses.
    hell if they don't work then I'm not out much.
    Might even be able to get them for free.

    Ok started on my rear disc conversion yesterday, started out fun but got kinda troublesome.
    The bolts that hold the spindle on (torx bolts) rounded off, so my buddies and I took the trailing arms off the car. Luckily we have 2 milling machines so it made drilling out the bolts easy.
    We re-tapped the holes, everythings good. The trailing arms are re-installed and everything bolted and torqued.

    I have all the brake lines and hoses ran, still need to install the proportioning valve and get some pads. Ment to get them yesterday but it was 9:00 before I knew it, so advance was closed.
    Going to get them when I get out of school today and get paint for my calipers (since they came painted a horrible orange color.)

    Will post up pics when I'm done.

    I found a problem yesterday, the prop. valve is the wrong one, went to the junkyard to see if I could find one, no luck.
    So my car isn't drivable until I get a new one.
    This sucks.

    I thought about it, but I'd rather get a prop. valve thats already proportioned correctly.

    My research on Prop valves have came up with this
    Prop valves that are the same as the 99-00 SI(will work with rear disks)
    99-00 SI
    96-00 2 Door DX
    96-00 3 Door DX
    96-00 2 Door HX
    96-00 3 Door CX

    Prop valves that are NOT the same as the 99-00 SI(will NOT work with rear disks)
    96-00 4 Door EX(With or without ABS)
    96-00 2 Door EX
    96-00 4 Door DX
    96-00 4 Door LX A/C
    96-00 4 Door LX ABS


    If anyone has anything to add to this just post it up and I will change it.
    This is looking up part numbers and matching them with the SI part number.

    Also the integra rear brake hoses(the soft lines) worked for my trim.
