Default EM2 Rear Brake Conversion

First of all I apologize if this kind of thread exists. I searched around but couldn't find anything regarding 7th gen Civics.

I'll soon be doing the rear disc conversion to my 01 LX and have all of the brake parts from the back of the 02-03 Civic HB. Now I know that I wont be using the wheel speed sensors but I'm wondering if there is a proportioning valve that I should be switching to aswell? Everything else is straightforward I just haven't been able to find anything about this.

Also if anyone could point me in the direction of a good set of braided flexhoses that would be awsome.

Thanks for any help.

Yeah, that thread has come up quite a few times in my searches. It doesn't answer my proportioning valve question though.

I just read that whole thread. Justin wrote it up. Short answer, no, you don't need a proportioning valve. ABS should have nothing to do with the proportion between the front and rears. Your brake setup between ABS and non ABS are identical. Same rotors, same calipers, same pads, same drums, shoes, etc. Proportion should be the same. I have a dx and kept my stock prop valve and it's more than fine. Car stops on a dime.

I have the EX which is much better than Andy's DX and my car stops on a half-penny. That's the real benefit between the EX and the DX.


The rest of Andy's advice is good though.

Sounds good to me. Anybody know where I can find a set of braided lines? All I can find is universal ones.

Dezod is a ripoff. Buy them from Jegs.

And the front of the SIR should be the same as the EM2 right? For the braided lines that is.

Bought the braided lines this morning. I'll wait for those to get here and get my swap on.

I was just making sure. If the people here have had no real problems not changing it then I see no point in looking for one.

is said that you should use a proportioning valve for a rear disc brake system because the rear drum brake assembly uses more pressure than the discs, but most of the people uses the same proportioning valve (integra to civic brakes).
