Icon5 do i need new rod for oversized type s piston

im rebuilding a 98 prelude sh and the #4 piston wall is bad. im going to get it honed and probably put in type s oversized pistons. Is there anything else i would have to buy such as new rods to make this work? im afraid of piston slap or anything else that could happen that would blow my engine. Anything would help, im new to rebuilding motors but im having alot of fun doing this with my dad

Nope. Type-S postons will work just fine with A4 rods.
