LOOK AT MY NEW TOYS!!! :-) V. 5 LUG CONVERSION IS FINALLY COMING TO FRUITION!!!

NEW LEGEND TYPE II CALIPERS:


Finally found (4) 5th gen spindles:



  • So couple questions---

    1. One of them didn't come with the dust cover.

    Can I use my 4th gen dust cover on it?

    2. They are in useable but rough shape, any tips on how to clean em' up before I use em'? the pic shows some of the rust etc...

EDIT: THE BREMBO ROTORS AND AXXXIS PADS SHOULD BE HERE EARLY NEXT WEEK!

i'm sure it couldn't be too hard to figure out how to make 4G dust covers fit. its prolly only a matter of drilling 2 or 3 holes.


none of that rust really looks detrimental to its strength. the only rust i would worry about is on the threads in bolt holes, which can be cleaned out with penetrating fluid/WD40.

i'm glad you were able to get what you needed. i'm so pissed about the entire situation. i will not list the 5 lug conversion parts as available until i have them in hand. def post up some pics once it's complete. i'm pretty jealous of the caliper conversion. good for you!!

Re: LOOK AT MY NEW TOYS!!! :-) V. 5 LUG CONVERSION IS FINALLY COMING TO FRUITION!!!

Thanks for the good words fellahs!

I'll definitly post up pics as I go etc...

I'm sure I'll run into a few complications that I'll need you all's help with.

Bill--- sorry again for not wanting to wait bro, but once you get them i'm sure u'll have no problem selling them, esp if my write up/conversion turns out as well as I'd like.

Brash, the Calipers are going for anywhere between 120-180 on www.acura-legend.com I got offers for like 3 sets, and this is just one, so if you'd like I can hook you up with the other two sellers over there.

People over there are equally as cool/willing to help as everyone here. I'm sure that a Type-II GS Sedan is going to be my next project once my lude is done to my satisfaction ;)

To anyone that maybe reading this and have had done the 5 lug before, I'm still having trouble finding out the specs of the washers I'll need to get everything to seat right, I dont want to have to buy a bunch of different ones or have to make multiple trips to home depot so if you have any light you can shed on tihs I'd appreciate it!

I need overall thickness, inner diameter and outter diameter.

Thanks!

Re: LOOK AT MY NEW TOYS!!! :-) V. 5 LUG CONVERSION IS FINALLY COMING TO FRUITION!!!

Copied from the other thread:

I'm on like every forum that has anything to do with a prelude, including UK and Australian Prelude forums. I truely like this one the most because of the people on it. great guys who are willing to help and more importantly, quick to help.

When I scroll through and find anything to do with the 5 lug swap I print them to a PDF and save it on my hard drive for later reference.

In any case I have combined everythting I've found in this one giant 65 page PDF. Its got a lotta helpful info, and a lot of info that may seem stupid for you to have if you're very versed in doing work on your brakes/suspension.

http://starbai.googlepages.com/5LUGC...ONWRITEUPS.pdf

mods I'm going to post this in my other thread too just to keep the information together for whomever may search for it in the future so dont get all pissy for me posting the same **** in 2 threads.

I'm a complete noob when it comes to this stuff (anything mechanical) so anything relating to this swap including basics like installing rotors and pads will be found in this PDF.

I'm posting it so that you dont have to go searching everywhere.

Remember this info comes from several sources, forums everywhere, and none of it is my original work.

That being said I'm not sure if I'm violating any rules etc... So if anyone comes across this and u dont want your info in it or the mods dont want **** from other forums in here just tell me and I'll be happy to take it down---

Would Legend type II calipers be an upgrade to a 5th gen?

from what i've read, it wouldn't be worth the cost.

upgrade from a non vtec 4th gen yes. upgrade from a 5th gen not so much.
