  1. Help with potential master cylinder issue.

    Wheels & Tires
    I drive a 2005 RSX Base and recently replaced the calipers and rotors on all 4 wheels. These calipers and rotors have no consequential differences from the original.

  4. Rear Brakes & Rotors...what do you like?

    The DIY Garage RSX
    Hi. The 2006 RSX will need rear brakes pretty soon (<5000miles). The way my son drives that's like a few weeks!! I don't know what's on there now other than they are drilled rotors. I'd imagine they are middle to higher end consumer "performance" quality. I plan on replacing the rotors and...

    Suspension, Chassis & Brakes
    Hey guys one of my brakes was leaking on my RSX-S. Got it replaced. System was fully dry and there was no pressure at all.

    Thanks all for the recommendations in my previous thread. I went with the Powerstop brake kit from Amazon for an extremely reasonable price of $180 My mechanic put them on today - labor was around $200 to install them, which seemed pretty reasonable. Overall - I could not be happier. This...
