Default Ef sedan EX front calipers not fitting.

I feel like I'm goin crazy here. I bought, or I thought I did, the correct sized rotors/ calipers for my 1990 ex sedan except the calipers won't slide far enough over the rotor to bolt on.
These are the rotors and here is a pic of the calipers I bought. I can't imagine they sent me the wrong part. Don't 90 ex's come with the bigger 262mm front rotors? Ima call them on Monday and see what's up but I figured might as well ask here first.

dont ever buy brake parts from a wseller who thinks it fits 30+ years of hondas.

hop onto autozones website, find the rotors for your car, they have measuring diagrams that are usually fairly accurate.

then measure the rotor you have and see if it matches.

that will tell you if something is up, or if you got the wrong part, or if the seller is a ree ree

EDIT rockauto.com. sometimes cheaper than ebay. and you do not need drilled or slotted rotors, even if you are racing.

Cheap drilled rotors are going to stress Crack with heat cycling, from what I remember, is that the holes need to be cast and not drilled. Your more than likely got the wrong rotors anyway, but yes, the ex rotors are the largest of the dx, si, hf, and ex

oreillys does not specify body style and offers both 260 and 240mm

autozone is generally more accurate than oreillys

you probably need a 240mm. the 260mm is probably for wagovan 4wd models

Measuring them seems to make sense to me... or just guess

The civic ex brakes are heralded as a diy big brake upgrade for all ef and Ed chassis, (as well as the 90/91 integra's)

Measuring your old rotors will probably be the best option, since your having issues.

Also, if your looking to track the car, there are a lot of better options for brake up grades

Thanks for that thread actually. Good ideas in there. Anyone know how to identify 90 ex spindles vs Dx or any other ones really? This car was pretty Frankensteined when I got it so I wouldn't doubt If these aren't even ex spindles in the first place. Any stamp code or something? Googling elsewhere for now.

camber will be all kinds of screwed up, and using Skunk 2 arms to fix it will result in the knuckles breaking as well as destroying the Skunk2 balljoints.

White 81 EX EF Sedan, knuckles were sold and EK DX knuckles used to fix the camber when the car was slammed. When I raised it up to a sane ride height the camber was positive.

Tucking those 13's

I looked at them last night and forgot to write down the numbers, my apologies. Glad you figured it out.
