unusual 4 Gen 5 lug conversion question?

Hi, first let me warn you that this is my first thread so go easy on me, ok?

I know that i can convert to a 5 lug with 5 gen parts, but since there were no sales of this model in my country it is imposible to find parts to use and ordering them from the United States is very expensive.

My question is this, CAN I USE PARTS FROM OTHER MODELS, LIKE 5 OR 6 GEN ACCORDS? I read somewhere that the ODYSSEY knuckle would fit, Or calipers from another model, anything that will reduce the parts needed to import.

Thanks to all your help!!!!

Re: unusual 4 Gen 5 lug conversion question?

Okay, i`ve been reading and the only thing i need for the back is the 5 gen hub and a rotor, for the front i need the 5 lug and caliper and support, and the rotor.

Can i use CRV hubs, or calipers?, anybody knows?

I've never done it but....

You need all 4 spindles with 5 lug hub assembly an if your equipped with abs also use the 5th gen abs sensors also unless you have a vtec model you need the front vtec calipers an rotors an 5th gen brake lines

It's taken you over a year to do this? Talk about thread revival, lol.

Re: unusual 4 Gen 5 lug conversion question?

Yeah, had to, no responses the first time i posted.

This year i`ve been focusing on the turbo upgrade, and now that i have the power i see the need to upgrade the brakes, but after reading a lot it seems that it is a lot of trouble for the supossed gain.

Should i just get a vtec caliper and rotor?

No way i`m paying 1000 bucks for a Big Brake Kit!!!!!!

Need advice
