    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 F*cking 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.

    17x7 55 offset

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