DIY- LX 5 Lug and Rear Disc Swap

OEM Parts Needed - This DIY applies to those with rear drums only


Front Knuckles L and R
Front V6 calipers L and R
Rear Knuckles L and R
Rear EX (4cyl) or V6 calipers L and R - they're the same
EX 4yl or V6 parking brake lines
OEM or Aftermarket rear disc brake lines - I used Russell SS lines
V6 Accord Rotors/Pads F and R
New Brake Fluid, OEM or Equivalent - I used Valvoline Syntec

Recommended - Change the outer tie rods and lower/upper ball joints if you haven't already. My tie rods were bad (torn) and my D. side lower ball joint was on its way out.


Tools needed/used -

4 jack stands
Jack or two
Breaker bar (bigger the better)
17mm, 14mm 6 point sockets - preferably deep
17mm - 14mm wrenches
1/2" and 3/8" ratchets
Assorted extensions for both sized ratchets
Line wrenches (for brake lines)
PB Blaster
Grease
POR15
Anti-Seize
Propane torch (stubborn bolts or studs)
BFH - Big *******g Hammer
Air gun
36mm socket (axle nut)



For those with EX's and SE's (already have rear disc) - this is your parts list.


FRONT:
Knuckles are same I4/V6 - just the hub/bearing assembly is needed
V6 Rotors (5lug) - bigger than stock 4cyl by almost an inch
V6 Calipers - bigger than stock 4 cyl to match bigger rotor
V6 Pads

REAR:
Knuckles are same I4/V6 - just the hub/bearing assembly is needed
V6 Rotors (5lug) - same size as stock 4cyl
Stock I4 Calipers - exact same as V6
V6 Pads - Same as I4 since Caliper is same


- EX/SE DIY - basically the same, except your just swapping the rear hubs, either the hubs or complete knuckles in the front, and reusing your e-brake cables.





Starting off -








Getting there -









E-Brake -








New Wheels -



Finished -

Other than coming out of the factory and onto the dealer lot, they've never really been driven on.
