    I want to do an integra rear disk brake swap on my 93 civic ex. What parts do i need and is the swap hard? Is it worth doing the swap?

    Make sure you get the proportioning valve or your front brakes will engage before your rear....

    swap is not hard at all. all u need are the rear hubs off of an integra and just swap them onto your ex trailing arms.

    you dont need the prop valve but its a good idea to get it.


    by the way i just did this myself and think the brakes are much improved over the drums but many people will debate that.

    The only benifit from drums is they weigh less. I you have aftermarket rims, it is a good idea to boost your braking. plus discs look better. I did this swap. I used the entire trailing arm and everything attached to it. such as brake lines, cables for e brakes. i didn't switch the proportioning valve i don't have a problem, but i havn't driven in the snow yet.
