can anyone detail what is involved in swapping drums for discs. I have drums on my 07 sedan in the rear... I already have a set of rear rotors, pads and the actual rear calipers... what do I have to do
If you have all of that check the junkyards for the rest of what you need, probably won't be too expensive considering there is not a huge demand for such parts. I personally hate working on drum brakes that's why every car I've owned has disc all the way around, plus it just looks better.
its a bunch of searching around. I think the job will come in at around 500 bucks, figure 100 for each knuckle, 150 for the rotors and pads, 50 for each caliper (already spent this money) and another 100 or so for the lines... I just put on some pretty open 18s and I'm hating the drums behind them.
thats a pretty good write up, but a little unclear about the parts involved. I just ordered up the spindles with hubs and new stoptech stainless steel brake lines for the front and rear. I'm supposing all thats left are the e brake lines (why do these need to be changed?) and the proportioning valve
Nope no need for the master cylinder. Just everything ADI said. Proportioning valve is important. Make sure its from an EX with disk brakes. I think its worth it, feels better when I brake. Also, I would suggest a rebuild of the caliper. My passenger one lasted for 2 years then seized.
I think if you have the LX drum proportioning valve you are sending improper pressure to the back calipers. Its either more or less I don't remember which one it is.
And if you are going to spend the money to actually do the conversion why not do it with the appropriate pieces. Its freakin $30 bucks. If it didn't matter then why would honda spend the time and money to make a different one?
before i get attacked. I have searched for days with no real answer and i havent seen any posts of it being done only rumored that one person did it in this forum but not sure who. if there is real info please send links. I have a I4 7th gen coupe that is auto ajd am doing a manual swap. I got...
So I am going to make a thread that tells you exactly what motor and transmission combination that will work for the accord 03-07 v6 if you want to swap it. I am tired of people sending me PM. Now start reading or have something read it to you, and learn.
Accord 03-05 stock motor J30A4...
Hey random question... I know and read about j series heads but have anyone ever tested a real life power difference between say a j30/32 and j35 or j37 head?... Ive read about the flow and all the theories and i know for the most part once you are that far into the engine other things change...
