Default Rear disc conversion 95 honda civic dx

Ok. So I'm trying to do a rear disc conversion on a 95 honda civic d's. I'm currently in the process of removing the rear trailing arms from my crashed 94 honda civic ex and have run into an issue with removing the rear trailing arms. There is a line running from the car to the rear disc brake hub which also runs along the rear sway bar to the other hub. I have had people tell me to cut it but I don't know if this is something I will need to transfer from the ex to the d's to make the brakes function properly. I'm on a time limit as my landlord wants the car removed being that it is totalled. I'm in dire need of assistance and would appreciate any help you guys can give me. Thanks

Post pics. I bet the line is for a wheel speed sensor for ABS. Does the EX have ABS?

These lines I highlighted in yellow are for the wires for the wheel speed sensors that you wonít need if you are swapping these brakes onto a non-ABS chassis.

Yes that's the ABS sensor wire, you won't need it.

You will need all the parking brake cables etc. they are different from the drum version.
