    Alright, as of last night I scored the final piece to my "under car upgrade. I have a 92 Civic CX hatch, 100% stock, with thexception of the 16" rotasw/azenas. This is what i plan on changing to over Thanksgiving weekend...

    Full 95 GSR front and rear Caliper/Rotors/LCA's/A-arms etc.(complete)
    Omnipower street coilovers
    Goodridge SS brake line
    95 GSR MC/Brakr Booster/ PV
    New brembo blanks
    Pads-only thing I haven't made up my mind about.(hawk,axxis,ebc)

    now here are my questions...

    1. If i swap everything for the GSR over to the hatch, my CX splines will not fit the GSR hubs, correct?
    2. if i am right, is there any way around this, such and just swapping calipers/rotors/mounts to the CX spindals?
    3. I need recomendation for BRAKE PADS. This is a street setup only, for daily driving. Its getting an all motor GSR over the summer, but I'm doing the handeling end now, to get everything squared away. I want the fucker to stop hard, but I don't want to replace rotors every 6 months.
    4. straight up, who make the best traction bar out there (jim fab, full race, etc.)

    thanks guys.

    1- i dont think you'll have a problem with axels. bill's b-series axels fit in the cx hub... so why would the other way around not be true?
    2- worst comes to worst, you can make a hybrid axel. tap the cv boost side off, and slap some gsr ends onto the d-series axel setup. That's what we did for e's JDM ITR brake setup which takes integra inners and prelude/accord outers
    3- Hawk HPS
    4- IMO, Full-race.

    full race is definitely better in every category.

    Full-Race is lighter then the JimFab
    Full-Race is stronger then the JimFab
    Full-Race has more clearance then JimFab

    only drawback is that Full-Race is more expensive, but well worth it over the jimfab IMO. only reason i dont have the full-race is because full-race bar wasnt out yet, and jimfab was the best option at the time. eventually i will sell the jimfab and get a full-race.

    The CX splines are the same as the GSR, you'll have no problems fitting the axles.
