    Hey all,
    I'm finally getting ready to do the rear disc swap, and I found these on eBay:

    Can anyone tell me from looking at the pic if those rotors are in decent shape? Will that rust be scraped off after a few stops, or will I need to get them turned by a mechanic?
    Also, does anyone know a good place to get the e-brake cables and/or proportioning valve? Thanks in advance!

    Ebrake cables www.hondaautomotiveparts.com

    Have those rusted bish's turned man, and no, I can't tell, but you can run your finger from the outside to the hat, and if you feel any grooves then your pads are shit, but you should replace them anyway.

    dont be a cheap ass buy new rotors and if you cant do that then take those rotors off and go to an automotive store and have them test them for thickness, and if able have them turned for like 5 bucks a piece. get new pads either way you go.

    While we're talking about Rear disc spindles, does anyone know if you have to replace the entire hub assembly to replace a wheel bearing? Or can you just press out the old one?

    you certainly don't have to replace anything more than the hub unit, which is just a small plate with four lug bolts on one side and a bearing on he other. Not sure if it's more dissectable than that, though.

    No, just take the hub off and replace the bearings.

    The problem is that they dont sell the rear wheel bearings anywhere! For the front they sell them, but not for the rear, they only sell the whole hub unit.
