    i am hoping someone on here can help me out with this as i am a bit clueless.

    I want to upgrade my brakes and i hopefully have a oppertunity to do this with a set of front and rear Prelude brakes.

    My question is i was going to use this to upgrade to Integra or MB hubs to run 4 x 114.3

    My question is can i run the front and rear brakes from a Prelude on MB Hubs?

    you can run the front ones for sure but not 100% sure on the rear ones

    thats my worry, i know the fronts will fit but i think i remember reading that i can only use MB rear brakes on a MB rear set up

    Most people will sell a 4x114.3 conversion with rear calipers anyway - I know I sure will be!

    i have been very tempted by your 5 stud conversion Ozz

    might have to visit some breakers and get some prices

    I run 4 stud mate, I'm changing to 5 stud in the near future so will be selling my 4 stud :Tongue:

    oh i sware i see you selling a 5 stud swap? must besomeone else!

    Would my Prelude rear brakes fit on a Civic rear disc hub? and would EG rear arms suitable for discs fit on my EK?

    no that would be me selling the 5 stud setup :Tongue:

    all trailing arms from 92-00 Civics will fit any of the Civics in that era!
