EF SDN to DA Suspension and Brake Upgrade clarification..

Hello all, I am new to the EF sdn scene I just got my first one.

http://www.honda-tech.com/showthread.php?t=2718820

^^^ my sweet ED ^^^

And the first mods I have in mind are all suspension and brakes.

After reading through this write-up:

http://ef-honda.com/ben/EFhybridsus.php

I belive I now understand what is needed to upgrade all the suspension components on my 1989 SDN.

I belive this is everything I need from a DA integra:

For the Front
Hubs - inculding brakes/calipers.. w. brake lines ect.
Front LCA's
Strut/spring setup

For the Rear
Rear trailing arms - including brakes/calipers w. cables ect..
Rear LCA's
Strut/spring setup


Now if I understand correctly the only thing you cannot use from the DA Integra is the Front upper control arms. Since they are 1/16 longer you must still use a Civic/CRX UCA.. Correct?


Thanks guys ..

also what seats will fit into these SDN's .. ive looked cant get any definiative awnsers... DA SDN Maybe?[/url]

for the front i would only use the hub not the LCA.   and for the rear, only the trailing arm, also with the rear you can use the upper control arm if you want to get rid of some camber if your lowered, if not lowered just use your civic rear upper control arm.

and i dont really see you gaining much by using the integra springs/struts, they might be a lil stiffer, but i would just use what you have unless they are going out

Why not the lca for the front?

i will be lowered so i will use the DA rear uca's

as for the spring/ struts i will be using a koni yellow/gc setup for an integra... i may even venture into extended top hats.

thanks for the input...

nice choice, the koni/gc is suppose to be a good setup

and the front LCA, I am assuming it is longer or the same length, if it is the same length then you arnt gaining anything, but if it is longer your going to end up with more camber than you want
KidFrost

aah  got cha.. ok so to refresh

front:
knuckles only .. w. brake setup

rear:
trailing arm w. brake setup
rear uca
rear lca-- for sway bar mount

plus after market strut and coil setup and you are set...
KidFrost

ooh yea and just a hunch but its prolly wise to also change the prop valve out for one from the DA
bradpee

should be set to go, and the prop. valve would be a good idea
Xian

Just as important as the prop valve is a bigger MC... with the larger displacement of the Teg brake pistons, the pedal feel will go to crap unless you go to a larger MC.

^^x2 master cylinder is also a good idea
