I must say that the ‘Lego’ possibilities with Honda cars are fantastic ! I continue to play with my toys and move on the full front knuckles rebuild with big brakes installation. Here are the specs :
- OEM knuckles are swapped for knuckles out of a VTEC civic version.
- Calipers will be NISSIN 17CL15VN from a TYPE-R Integra
- OEM pads
- 282mm new EBC discs (Rover MG-ZR reference)
- New wheel bearings
- New extended ARP wheel studs
Swapping the knuckles was needed to have a bolt-on installation of the ITR calipers. Everything seems to be ok but I must say I’m a little bit worried with one thing : the extra-weight added with this new setup …
ARP studs and aluminium extended wheel nuts. I’ll go back very quickly to steel nuts as I don’t trust those one anymore !
… but after a big cleaning and piston removing, here we are : no rust at all inside ! Calipers will be rebuilt using brand new OEM Honda seal kits.
.. And my new set of shoes ! OZ ultraleggera, 15″ x 7″, less than 5 kilos for one raw wheel. And happy to be lucky.
Lucky because it was impossible for me to test wheel and ITR calipers clearance before buying the whole set.
