Another problem

Car was not original SI model.

How do I find out what kind of brake caliper rotor, pads it have?

Sorry for the noob questions

Front and/or rear?

 

Measure the front rotor diameter. Roughly 9.5" = most 88-00 Civics, 10.3" = most Integras, 11" = ITR.

 

Rear are all nearly the same for pads.

Hi Simon

 

Ok, my guy already took the brake apart and confirm they are not SI

I want to swap everything to SI, would the hanger be the same or need to get different ones.

Also where is a good place to get rebuilt calipers?

BTW

Is for the front.

Thanks

HF and DX and Si are basically the same size brakes in the front. All the part numbers for the pads/rotors from Honda are different but that is because the brake caliper bracket is different between all of them (according to H-T people). Therefore you do need to know which brakes they are but only for when you order pads. I myself do not know exactly what the difference is...

 

90-91 Civic EX have larger Integra sized brakes.

So would Si calipers bolt onto the DX model?

From what I remember of my '91 hatchback yes BUT they're basically the same.

Heard that the 90-91 SI have bigger piston

 

Yes, this is correct, and the '90-'91 also used a different pad shape than the '88-'89 CRX Si. Also, if you haven't already, upgrade to the '90-'91 CRX Si master cylinder, which is a 7/8" bore, as compared to the '88-'91 which is a 13/16" bore.

 

As far as other components, you really can't go wrong with the Cobalt XR series of brake pads, and I use the XR2 front and XR5 rear on my H4 CRX Si. I switched from Brembo rotors to Mehle rotors middle of last season and am really pleased with their performance and durability.

 

Let me know if you are interested in a set of Cobalt pads as I'm a dealer for them and can get you a better price than what their website or HPD offers.

 

Regards,

You have to make your own. I know of no one that offers a kit worth investing in.
