just unbolt the toe arm to trailing arm bolt, then leave the toe adjustment arm attached to the car. you'll have to pull on it a little to get it back to gether and get the bolt back it but i'll keep the toe setting and your car wont handle completely crazy before an alingment. i have a 97 ex and i used 94 gsr rear discs, e'brake cables, 99-00 si prop valve, and rear brake hoses for a 94-01 integra. since you have a dx you might have to get a ex/si master cylinder, but im not sure.

I installed both front and rear brakes off a 94 integra. What I used was a 92 si 40/40 prop valve and a 15/16ths master cylinder off a 91 civic ex sedan. you will love the feel of the brakes if you install the same stuff I did.

i would say yes on a rear realignment...all the parts have manufacturing tolerances on them so it won't be exactly the same as the old dx control arms. for example i changed my front drive shaft since it was clunking & by taking the tie rod, strut off & reinstall, the alignment is off in the front now.
also i would change out the trailing arm bushings since you have it out right now. i bought prothane bushings for them...
and like mrnicolas said, you need the 40/40 prop valve from the integ or any other hondas w/ 4wheel discs setup...i also used the brake booster & master cylinder from an integ. what you can do is check on the body of the master cylinder on your car, it should have a casting of the size of the piston on the master cylinder...on my eg lx 4d, it came w/ 15/16 master cylinder (i believe the smaller standard honda size is 13/16 so check yours out). i would suggest getting both the brake booster & master cylinder from the same car so it'll prevent you from readjusting the brake booster activation push rod...yeah don't ask me how i know!!!
good luck...

this is good info. just to add, I didnt change my prop valve or booster and the brakes are the best Ive had on any car. I guess just do the swap first, then if the pedal is mushy, go for the rest....but you may not need it.
