You can always email too. They are good at responding via emails. The timeframe to me was pretty decent. I've had to re-order some bushings from them because of the ones I fudged on and they were able to get it to me in a good timeframe given the bad weather lately.

edit: awesome quality videos btw. Keep it going. This is a different style of build threads and hopefully others are capable of doing the same.

Yeah, I need to for sure because I need a whole bushing set as well. Planning to transfer over the entire Integra suspension to the civic which will make coil and bushing selection not straight forward.

Thanks for the compliment on the videos. Need to start pumping more of them out! Want to add in some more artsy style videos as well that I think others will enjoy that you dont see.

Looks like they have Integra bushing sets available finally! Sadly, my kids ate all my moneyz for Christmas and paying for an adoption is mildly expensive so that will have to wait.

Good news is I have been busy breaking down the Integra further and have the entire interior pulled. Every nut, bolt, wire is removed and now the exterior is getting the same treatment. There is so much money in individual parts on ebay... its crazy. Last night while trying to drop the entire subframe with front suspension, I shattered a 19mm socket with a 5ft breaker bar... so an impact socket is necessary when I go back to battle with the undercarriage. The plan is to swap over all of the integra suspension, knuckles, brakes and subframe (utilize GSR sway, steering rack converted to manual and the T-bracket) which will work perfectly if I can get the PIC bushing set. I'll be restoring the suspension components with those bushings, fresh coat of paint prior to reinstalling so they are just like new when they go on the civic hatch.

I've heard multiple responses on the necessity but I need some advice on rebuilding the GSR calipers or just buying new from Rockauto and sending the old ones in as cores. Thoughts? Also, the brake master cylinder, booster will need to be swapped over and I am curious if the distribution block from the civic DX will work or the GSR...

Been trying to film a bunch of footage so I can pull together several video updates since with 3 kids and another on the way my time can be a bit stretched certain weeks.

Interesting, I've never had that problem when removing the subframe. Was it rusted to ****?

I just finished up on my sisters db7 on all bushings, can't wait to take it out on for a spin.

Yes the proportion valve is needed.

Gather the cost of rebuilding (oem vs aftermarket rebuild) vs buying from rockauto. Do you have time to do the rebuild?

I rebuilt my calipers and I'm totally incompetent. That being said, it's not the easiest process in the world. Getting the piston seals correct is kind of a PITA. But, if you've the time and it saves money, do it. It's kind of fun to learn.

Its not that I don't have the time... it might have come out that way. Just have to batch a bunch of stuff into a day or two a week. What did you use for pressing out the bushings? Hand held type presses or a floor mount? I want to make sure I gather everything I need for when I start the job.

I like this kind of stuff and dont mind putting in the elbow grease, plus it would make for a good video tutorial on Youtube. Thanks for the advice!

I had the lca's pressed out by a shop, but I started taking care of the bushings myself with a balljoint kit from Autozone. I needed some washers and some deep sockets and I was on the way to pressing my own bushings. I'll need to size up the lca bushings so I can try them out when I start on my own civic. It was a good feeling to do it myself. Man this db7 gonna feel real nice on the road.

In todays episode of Stauffer Garage, I paint my tyres or tires, Idlers style to get that cool JDM look and because why the heck not? I also show you some clips of my old car, a 2011 Subaru STi that I had some work done to. Also, a recent pull with the thermostat fixed along with discussions of my plans and how the Yonaka catback exhaust is working... got some weird rattles that I believe are inside the resonator, crap!

I rebuild the caliper on my 98 civic sedan with OEM kit. Pretty pleased with it. Not very hard. I used those stirring stick u get at starbuck to push the seal down into the groove. Have a sanding wheel around help quite a bit. The piston had rust build up around the base of the seal. Cleaning those rust up is much easier with a sanding wheel. I didn't fully disassemble the caliper. Only the piston and the wire ring that hold the seal in. Then I clean out the inside of the caliper, then shove some rag inside it. While I clean, with a wire brush, the body. Air blow the rust off. Then put everything back. No more leak. Brakes is nice and firm.

Good luck with your project. I do enjoy the vids. Keep up the good work.

Short update this week but tore into the Integra shell a whole lot more. Interior is practically stripped and parts are going up onto Ebay to recoup the swap cost. Appreciate those that submitted their builds and they will be featured in the next video.

Cool shots. There's a photography thread in GDD if you're into photography. Be forewarned, though. GDD is not for people with thin skin.
