So to confirm: to swap to rear discs you need to swap entire trailing arm (with hub/bearing/brakes/etc) from any civic (EG/EK), del sol, integra, etc.

Also need brake lines and handbrake cables from relevant vehicle (this is a pain in the arse because will be horrible to remove from old vehicle!!)

Is this correct?

As far as I see it the only joints to chassis from trailing arm are the trailing arm bush and to the lower control arm. If these are the same throughout all the vehicles mentioned above then it should fit. If not then no! Anyone know this?
1996 EJ9 Civic
1998 BB8 Prelude Motegi VTi
1998, B16A2 EK4 Civic VTi

EJ9 - Now my GF's car.
BB8 - Rebuild after crash damage to front end.
EK4 - Daily driver. Strip and track prep once prelude project complete

Hello, I have a non-ABS EJ9. Will ABS-equipped Del Sol parts fit my drum to disc brake swap?

del sols are actually egs. So I guess yes.
