my friend is parting out a 98 integra and i have a shot front passenger caliper on my 98 civic dx. What can i pull off his integra onto my car.

Shocks
front and rear disk brakes
brake booster and cylinder
control arms?

i'm not really sure
from my understanding its all just bolt on swap
i've done some research but i'd like any more input if there is anything else to pull and any little feedback
i'm in norwalk if anyone wants to help or pull more parts for their own rig

The rear disc swap is the only place your really going to gain. Dont forget the proportioning valve!!

On the rear, it is my understanding that you pretty much want to grab the entire rear trailing arm as well. +1 on grabbing the prop valve, drum brakes need more pressure to operate, if you don't grab it, you will be prone to locking up the rears under hard braking. Also, I think your rear lower control arms are longer than his, you don't need those.

If you have a bad front caliper, get the front brakes off his car, again, get as much of the suspension as you can, at the very least, get it from the cast knuckle out. While your at it, see if you can get the booster and M/C too.

Edit: Is this for the same car that you, prior to making this thread, blew the motor up on and prior to that were talking about trying to do a $600 performance rebuild/overhaul on?

the rear is not the only gain. hell I'd rather just take the front. the integral rotors and calipers are bigger meaning better braking power over your stock.

so i pulled everything off yesterday i got the four disk brakes, proportioning valve our master cylinders are the same, i didn't get the booster i got the lower control arms, the trailing arms the only problem is one rotor broke and all four shocks one of the shocks looks a lil tweaked so might not end up using the set.

all i need now are the cables right?

btw while disassembling my my car i looked at my axles they are in really bad shape i knew the boots were torn but there is practically no grease in them so i'm gonna pick up
a set tomorrow with some new front rotors and maybe a set of coil overs for "five bills"

You need his e-brake cable or and an extension to yours , and what kind of coil overs and axles are you getting for 5 bill that's a little steep, right ? Integras often have kyb gr2 shocks which are great just bump the bad ones over for the good . And the tweaked ones work but they will make a scratching noise. I did the same thing pulling off a set of springs one time and used the shock for about two months.

Any reason you want to use the Integra suspension? Why are you going with his control arms as well? The front shocks will work with different shock forks, and the rears can be made to work with a washer mod, or having a EG/DC bushing pressed in, as that would make up the different between the fork park and the LCA. I was going to use a EG/DC setup on my car, but wound up getting an ITR style setup instead.

The best/inexpensive upgrade on a civic is integra parts.

but if money is not the issue then base it off of the main use of the car ie.. DD/ auto -x/ track -drag/ so forth.. the harder your drive the better your brakes need to be. but at any rate a set of drill or slotted rotors up front will do just fine with name brand pads. rear brakes dont do much of your stopping but they do help. ie hand brake and the car starts to over steer.
