Relatively new to Club EP3, not new to Hondas though.

My question is: Will I need to run the DC5-S e-brake cables when I swap the suspension?

I picked up the complete front shock/knuckle/etc setups, and the complete rear setup including trailing arms, lower control arms, and camber arms etc. from a 2003 Type S.

Sorry if this has been covered previously, I've been searching for a while trying to find my answer.

Thanks guys! :thumbsup:

That might be true... I tried calling the stealership to get specs on the axles but they were no help.

Are the knuckles from the 02/04 base RSX and 02/04 RSX-S the same? I order ball joint for an ep and those fit. Thinking of swapping hubs and bearings to base if they'll fit the knuckle. Base have the same outbound spline 26. Any thoughts?

PM me in the future!!!

For future reference, the 04 ep3/base RSX/ and RSX-S share the same bearings according to autozone's database. So in theory, you could press in a base RSX bearing + hub into RSX-S knuckle and have a perfect match... Or swap out for 02/04 RSX-S axles and the RSX-S nuckle assembly. For sake of readiness, the RSX-S axle's are better if you plan to upgrade to higher hp.
