Default Integra Rear Disc Conversion on an EG hatch. (lots of pics)

===REPLACING DRUM TO DISC===



^this is my car before the rear disc conversion^



^first off remove this two philips screw holding down the armrest (i just have those 2 holding it in place while OEM armrest has those 2 and 2 more in the rear)



^then roll back the rear carpet until you can see the 2 ebrake cables. unscrew the adjuster nut so you can get some slack to remove those hammer head thingy. after both cables are loose, push the 2 rubber garment things down so that after you remove the two 12mm bolts from underneath, slide under the car and pull the cables free.



^after the cable is out remove the 14mm toe bolt and the two 17mm bolts holding the arm up.^



^then remove the lca bolt (thats the wrong bolt. i meant to remove the bolt to the right of it)



^finally unscrew the 10mm for the brake line. after you unscrew the line get some pliers and remove the clip thats holding it in place. little drops of brake fluid will be dripping so get something to catch it. then remove the two 14mm camber bolts and the whole trailing arm should start to drop. ( in this case, as i was removing the bolts, i brace the trailing arm on my thighs.^



^should look like this after removal. (sorry for the crooked pic. i was tired)^



^finished. one side that is . as for installing, just follow the steps in reverse.^

===REPLACING ROTORS===



^thats what happens when its been in the junkyard for a whiles^



^first remove the two 10mm bolts holding the sheild thing up top. then remove the two 12mm bolts holding the caliper. ^



^then remove the two 14mm bolts holding that thingy? (the thing the pads seat on)^



^should look like this after^



^those two rotor screws didnt have a chance to strip. (thats my hoodrich mini) ^



^brembo blanks from nopionline $47(great place. fast shipping )

after you mount the new rotors on, reverse the steps. i know i missed some steps, as in bleeding, pumping, installing pads, refilling fluids, but you get the idea. this post too some time so you guys enjoy



finished both sides.



^while im posting pics, here's my car a few months back^



^and heres it is 2 years ago when i had the b18b, silverstone metallic that i enjoyed for 2 months before someone reversed into my driver fender and door^



^now it been thru a major makeover. dont mind the valvecover and mounts. they're black now.^

nah never sport the same paint twice. IMO i rather custom paint over OEM. next color will be some more kandy. its cheaper.

$150 for the whole trailing arm from the junk yard. $46 for the rotors. type R mc/booster, RS mc/booster, and 4040 freebie from some friends around the way. im not sure whic mc/booster i will install yet. as for how long, about 4 hrs by myself maybe 3½ if i didnt take pics. but i had my brother come out after and pump the brakes

Nice Post and car!
I have some questions:
1. To convert it to disk brakes, do you have to replace the whole trailing arm assy?
2. How about cable sor the e-brake, did you replace it too or did the old cable bolt on?
Thanks!

Now I have no excuse not to install the GSR discs sitting in the garage

Great write-up!! Nice hatch. Kind of exotic for me. I really loved the silver look you had 2 years ago.

Good writeup. A little more thorough than mine to say the least. to you for taking all those pictures.

As far as the MC/BB and prop valve goes. With the 4040 prop valve you just undo the lines you have and rehook the lines into the new prop valve. No flaring required.

Same with the new MC. It's 2 bolts to hold it to the BB and then a couple of nuts to get the hard lines out.

I don't know how to get the BB out.

4 nuts behind firewall, and a clip and pin that holds the BB onto the brake arm

Yes. You will need the rear brake lines. I used some ITR E-brake cables and can't get them to release all the way....I think...I dunno. I'm still in the middle of it and am kinda stuck.
