Default JDM ITR 4x114.3 brakes onto an EK

Okay guys, I'm sure I left out a few steps, as I did this and took my tranny out both today. I put bleed the brakes after the ends of both just incase you guys plan to do either of these on their own. The same things apply for the GSR or any other disk brakes though.

Tools you'll need:
10, 12, 14, 17, 19mm sockets
Something to turn those sockets (I'd suggest air tools)
Wrenches (same sizes as above, minus the 10)
Screwdriver
Rubber Mallet

Fronts:

This is a comparison of what you're doing:

1. Break the old axle nut loose.

2.Remove the old brake assembly. Take off the tie rod end from the assembly, as well as the lower bolt under the brakes. I suggest you pull the top bolt shown here seperated off of the ITR assembly, as you can't reuse the ITR top part (UCAs, thanks nerdsports, but it has 2 bolts that you'll have to drill holes for if you plan to use them).




You also will have to reuse the Civic's (LCAs, thanks nerdsports) as the ITR ends are offset, whereas the Civic's are flat.



3.Once you have the old brake assemblies dropped down, slide the axle out. Now you're ready to reinstall the new assembly. Unbolt the brake line, and bolt it to the new one.

4. Reinstall the brakes using the ITR/Civic hybrid assembly.

5. Bleed brakes and enjoy your new stuff.

Rears:


Old and Busted



1.Unhook the e-brake cables from the center console in the car.
-get under the car, unhook the exhaust and drop the heat shield
-pull the ebrake through the rubber grommet (the whole grommet came out on mine)
-unbolt the 2 brackets that hold the e-brake cables on.
2.Use a screwdriver and mallet to bang off the clip on the brake line where it's mounted in the wheel well. (Where the hard line meets the soft brake line.
3.Drop down the whole rear brake assembly (should be pretty self explanitory)
4.Unhook the brake line where you unclipped it. It's a 10mm wrench application. Once you have this off, have the new assembly with INTEGRA rear brake lines attached to it. Unhook the old and rehook the new, as quickly as you can, as to keep brake fluid from getting all over the place.
5.Reattach the new assembly.
6.Reattach the e-brake cables
7.Bleed brakes.

New hotness:

New hotness

Im planning on doing a complete gsr brake swap myself (very soon) because of bent parts and shot bushings. Oh yeah and wimpy brakes.

Did you upgrade the master cylinder and prop. valve? My car has 4 wheel disk brakes allready so im thinking I just need to upgrade my maste cylinder.

I want to re-iterate that I am NOT DONE WITH THE FRONTS yet. I have bolted them up, but no reason in leaving them up there if I have to drop them agian tomorrow to put the axles back in (tranny is still apart from the other writeup).


If any of you guys have done this and see anythign I missed feel free to post it or let me know so I can include it.

looking good so far ricey

kind of ironic because i just did my rear disc conversion on my eg hatch today and was planning on putting it up later on. (had to clean up go to work and now i just got home)

as for the quote you missing the pics while removing/installing you're just teasing us with the 4x114

I knew it. You guys would find out I'm a big time pic *****.

In all honesty I was just trying to get the old stuff out before dinner so I was busting tail to get it done and forgot about pics. I can take some of the other side if that would be helpful.

DANNNGG!! Gangsta. What rotors are those? I'm going to get these resurfaced for right now, as one doesn't turn "cleanly" as of right now. I'll see how bad it really is once I drive it though.

ricey. the top part (that used parentheses to say you didn't know the name to) is called the upper control arm. and the bottom one (where you used this method again) is called the lower control arm... hehe.

nice write up. wish i could get me some 114, i love them itr wheels. slammed_93_hatch's...uhhh...hatch is so sick!

Sure, as soon as I get the car down off of the jackstands. Fixing the ISB has been taking longer than I thought (and I don't want to bolt the hubs back up only to break them down agian to get the axles in.)

This guy (souk) helped me get my stuff together on here before I bought it.

My rear rotors were warped when I got them, but they are within spec to be resurfaced. I'm going to have them redone for now.

And I have some HX rims sitting beside the ITR rims.

I can see how they look similar
