    I have had my H22A in my 96' civic HX since last September, since then I had to get my brake pads and rotors replaced in January and it seems they are going to need to be replaced again very soon....I was told that I should look into upgrading to an EX braking system and getting aftermarket rotors and pads for that.....anyone know what that process will involve parts wise or if someone may know another alternative to help it would be greatly appreciated....thanks in advance

    I would go with a gsr brake setup on all four corners, best bang for the buck, check out www.hmotorsonline.com, they should have what you need.

    dont bother with the slotted bullshit
    just get brembo blanks for half the price and stick with the hawk pads

    i have hawk HP+ pads and brembo blank rotors on my sol and have no problems with braking EVER... 5 track days... several autoX... a shit load of VERY agressive driving

    slotting is to protect against glaze, hawks dont glaze
    dont waste your money

    try to find one of the same year, but i believe 94-01 will work
    you'll need most everything though.

    That just makes the swap a whole lot easier, which I would recommend anyways for simplicity.

    not so easy if the REAR TRAILING ARM(not lca) is bent or damaged and you dont know by looking at it.

    no you dont have to replace the whole thing.
