Proper sized socket to remove lug nuts (usually 19mm, unless aftermarket)
10mm 12 point socket - Wheel bearing bolts
17mm Socket - Caliper bolts, ball joints, tie rod end, caliper bracket bolts
10mm 6 point socket - upper ball joint nut cover, ABS wire bracket bolts, Brake line bracket bolts
14mm Socket - Brake line to caliper bolt (optional)

Yes to all 3 questions if the car is a 90-97 accord.
You didn't list which year accord.

I don't think you're suppose to use CL bearings. You're suppose to go with Accord 90-97 bearings and use the CL hubs to press it on the Accord bearings. The Accord bearings are designed to be able to bolt onto the Accord front knuckles. I don't know if CL knuckles are the same as Accords.

We already said he could. Instead of flatly saying we're wrong, when ur not sure, you shouldn't even comment on it. Furthermore, bearings don't bolt onto knuckles, they press into hubs which bolt onto knuckes.

The CL rotor will have the holes for the screws. If you use the accord rotors, which will work, they will just hangs on there until you mount caliper back on. The accord bearings and cl bearings will both press into the cl hub, which you will obvsiouly be using, or ur not doing a conversion.

I know u can use either the '98 or '99 cl 2.3 rotor. Keep in mind, you will be using the 2.3 parts not the V6 parts CL.

You have to use a CL Premium and not the base model one.

I've posted a link to AccordinglyDone a ton of times with all the current brake setups that are compatible. Do a quick search for it either here or there.

Dude, reason I said go with Accord bearings is because its been done many time and this is the first time I actually see people saying that CL ones will work. This is for the OP to consider.

I've done mines many time and what I do is use the four bolts on the back of the accord knuckle to pull the bearing/rotor back together instead of pressing them in which will save me time/money! And I know they're pressed into the front knuckles but I don't use the press to press mine in, I use the bolts to pull them together once I'm ready to get them in back in.

OP, just get them from TASAuto all assembled together to save you the hassle.

Ok, fair enough. TBH, I never asked tasauto which bearings they're using. Didn't think it would matter.

Doesn't matter if it is premium or base they are the same. Though things could have changed since i did mine 7-8 years ago.

If you're asking for a cheaper option rockauto has a Dorman assembly for $60 each, so basically $130 or so shipped for both.

Actually now that I'm looking at the picture of that assembly up close, it's for the Accord, I'm not sure why they got that Accord hub in the CL section. I would say call rockauto and ask them if you really get the CL hub or you're getting the Accord hub because that picture is for the Accord hub and the oem cross reference is for the Accord hub as well. The CL hub part number is 44600-SY8-A00
