Default Rear Disc Conversion using Scarebird?

i've seen the sticky that uses the Si TA rear disc brake setup, but during my research, i came across this scarebird setup.

Honda Civic CRX SI Del Sol Integra Rear Disc Brake Conversion Brackets | eBay

just wondering if anyone here had done this before? this seems to be the easier way, i think...

I plan to do new bearings, studs, ball joints and bushings throughout when I switch over to Integra brakes, will definitely be buying the whole trailing arm/front knuckle, building them on the bench, and then installing complete. Don't forget your prop valve...

why not just use the caliper brackets with the interga caliper? no clearance issuses at all.

i wonder maybe the scarebird plate is meant for use with regular civic calipers maybe? most of the post i've seen uses teg or rsx calipers.

AutoXCivic: yea i read the 98civic's post.. since i don't have air tools.. probably not going scarebird route, since there's ppl posting about stripping the screws..

Scarebird brackets were made and test fitted with '98 Integra GSR rear calipers.

I have integra calipers on mine. The caliper brackets had to be milled ~1mm to clear the rotor.

Rear trailing arms can be had for anywhere between $75 and $125 and they come with everything you need. Unless you live on a deserted island you're wasting your money with adapter plates that likely won't fit right.

I ordered them, have yet to install them. I also have trailing arms if I run into any issues. I don't think you should have any problems.

If you live in the rust belt they can also be a huge, ginormous pain in the ass to remove.

I am currently doing mine with the adapter plates. Much easier than messing with the trailing arms when you live in the northeast.
