Default gsr front rotors on civic?

alot of people have been telling me that I can put gsr front rotors on my dx civic coupe, is this true? Will this really affect my stopping power and do I have to make any mods?

yes, it is infact true. but EX rotors are the same size as GSR....however...GSR has bigger calipers.

if you put the Teg knuckles on also, yes.

Just get a Teg front brake swap (knuckles to calipers) and install on your DX.
Best $150 you'll ever spend!

I put them on the front of my 96 civic dx and it helped stopping power quite a bit, the pedal felt a lot better too. All u need are the knuckles,calipers,discs, the stock brake lines will fit, mine did. Definatly a good,cheap upgrade.

I just did the whole GSR brake swap. You should get rear disc brake too. The GSR front calipers are better so I would suggest doing the whole knuckle/caliper assembly. If you do this swap do the 1" master cylinder/booster and proportioning valve.

How much you wanna bet?

Rememeber I said you must use the Teg knuckles also.

Simple unbolt/bolt-on swap.

If you plan on getting the rims do the whole swap. It will fit fine w/ the wheels you are going to buy. Everything should bolt right up. Make sure you get an alignment right away. My alignment was so far off on the front, I was drifting while driving straight.

yep, just finished them on my '93 Si - best upgrade for the money (brake-wise).
felt a LOT better than my old slotted + ceramic pads vs the gsr rotors + nearly-dead stock pads (which I was suprised). I believe '94+ civics w/ abs or 4wd (ex/si) had the larger 10.4" rotors (same as gsr), so the dx/cx/lx's had the 9.5" rotor. anyways - swap the whole knuckle/rotor/caliper + reuse the civic brake line that goes onto the caliper. hope that helped some.

I think the Teg front brakes would be enough for a street car. IMO rear discs on a street Honda are for for aesthetic appeal than anything else. If you're going to take it to the track, might as well get all 4 corners done.

* Still awaiting the response of the dood who got GSR brakes to clear HX wheels
