Legend GS calipers on a V6 AUTO?

Ive read in some posts about the 94-95 legend GS calipers on a 6MT accord and was wondering if they would work on an AUTO?.. Also, am I limited to only running 10.1" front rotors or can I run the 6MT 10.8's?

IF I do this, I also purchase legend GS pads and rotors? or will the accord rotors work and which ones the 10.1" or 10.8"?


THanks

if you have a v6: use old rotors and only buy calipers (loaded/semi-loaded)
if you have a 4cyl: get new rotors + calipers (again, loaded/semi-loaded)

Loaded means it comes with pads, unloaded means without pads.

How are the aftermarket brake caliper? I am looking at A1 Cardone caliper since I cannot find the factory Legend GS caliper.

The 7th gen auto has 10.8 up front and 10.1 in the rear. I think the 6MT has 11.1 in front.

Ok I have stock sized rotors coming in that are slotted and cross drilled. If I find a set of these 94-95 Legend GS calipers they will bolt right up? And which pads should I get? Accord pads or Legend GS pads?

I have a 2003 V6 Auto Sedan

Ok I found some at autozone.

Here is a thread someone wrote up on this conversion

http://www.v6performance.net/forums/...ght=brake+pads

sy272004 states and I quote "Important Note: you have to replaced OEM Right caliper with GS Left caliper for reason to have bleed screw at the top"

In the thread, however, I see that the bleed screw is different on both calipers, indicating that he got both a right and a left caliper.

If anyone can clarify please do because I am ready to go get a set of these calipers at autozone

Drivers Side

Passenger Side

http://www.autozone.com/autozone/cat...me=Fenco+Reman



They are 117.99 each with a core charge of $44.00 for a price minus core of $73.99 each.

Hopefully they wont mind if I give them back Accord cores.....
