Default rear disc brake conversion

I am doing a rear disc brake conversion on my '92 Civic HB Cx (yes, I have read the threads/ search already, but I was just curious to hear what everyone has done and if they like it or not). Apparently, you can use either the Civic or Integra control arm. I need to replace the bushings on both of them so I don't care which I use. Thanks

I recently have done a full gsr disc brake swap onto my eg hatch.
problem is the parking brake doesnt work. ive tried searching my **** off
looking for someone that has posted or done a writeup and no luck.
just wanted to know if you were able to fix that problem. thanks in advance.
ive tried adjusting the parking brake but there still is no clamp on the rear discs.
is there any other way than swapping over to civic si parking brake lines?

I have the rears installed right now. The parking break takes a lot more clicks than I prefer, but it works.

Teg cables for my 97 coupe - they were short, but nothing zip ties and new mounting locations couldn't handle.

Unless its a sedan, you can make the integra cables work. I dunno, maybe it'll even work okay with the sedan.

I still have my setup from an SiR but i trying to sell it along with a prop valve. I've done 3 of them, in all instances i was luckily to get complete lines with them i always used EG lines. if you can run eyemount LCAs much beefier then 96-00 LCAs
