Over the past weekend, I did the rotor over the hub conversion and thought that I would post about my research for the 94-97 accord sedan/coupe 4-cylinders.

I cross-referenced parts based on part numbers from aftermarket suppliers, because OEM part numbers between Acura and Honda may be different.

The 98-99 2.3L Acura CL and the 94-97 2.2L Accord Sedan/Coupe have some identical parts on the front of the car:

Steering Knuckle (actually have the same OEM part numbers)
Lower ball joint
Wheel Bearing
Calipers

The only difference between the two front setups of the Accord and the CL is the hub and the rotor. Acura implemented a normal setup for their cars for the 98/99 CL, but used the Accord setup on the 97 CL.

I bought a 98/99 2.3L CL steering knuckle w/ hub from a U-Pull-It junkyard for $25 a piece. I replaced the lower ball joints then swapped out the entire knuckle to my car.

The rotors that you need to buy are for the 98/99 2.3 CL (which are identical to the 98-02 Accord 2.3L front rotors if you like buying Honda OEM parts).

All other brake parts (except for the hub and rotor) can be ordered based on your accord, because they are identical to the CL.

so just to clarify..

all that is needed to complete this swap is CL rotors, steering knuckle, and hub assembly.

also if i read correct, the parts are specific to 4 cylinder and v6 engines. so if you have a 4 banger you get 4 cyl. parts. if you have a v6, you buy v6 parts

also here is the proper link to the accordinglydone.com site
