    I think like the 5 speed swap, this project can seem daunting due to the thread size when in actuality its not hard at all.




    I think if the OP updated the first few posts with examples of other peoples' setups, it wouldnt be hard at all.





    Anyway, if it helps.. here is my setup again.

    Front

    ~1995-1998 Honda Odyssey Knuckles (which happens to be the same spec as the 1998-2002 Honda Accord V6 Knuckles if those are easier to get for you.)

    ~New 1995-1998 Odyssey bearings

    ~Reused the old Odyssey Hub (waste of money to replace IMO)

    ~5 lug 11.2" Brembo OEM Blank Rotors (fit cars of same spec. ex: ITR, Lude, Legend, etc etc..)

    ~I used the Odyssey calipers that were included with my knuckles. If you dont have the money to spring for the Legend GS, no worries. My brake setup is still 100000000x better than the OE Accord Calipers.

    ~Odyssey Brake Pads.. I plan to switch to Hawk in the future

    ~Goodridge SS lines


    Rear Setup

    ~(NEW) Pre-Pressed 1997-2001 Honda Prelude Base/VTEC Hub bearing assemblies

    ~2003-? Acura RSX Base/Type-S Rotors

    ~Goodridge lines

    ~1994-1997 Honda Accord EX Brake Calipers (my car is an EX but I wanted to make it explicit that you use these calipers.)

    ~OE 5th gen pads of course..

    ~OEM Stub-shaft nut.. staked to hell and back lol



    Wheels:

    1997-2001 Honda Prelude blades
    bam.

    You may look at this random internet stranger and think what does he do in spare time??
    Well it's fairly obvious I'm a trance/dubstep producer.

    Thanks buddy. I hope you get the 5 lug finished. Its mad easy for EX 5th gens since you dont have to do the rear disc swap.
