just go with the rexes discs unless you find the tegs for cheaper, quicker. keep in mind though, the rear drums locks up super easy on these cars as it is, the teg's bigger rotors may look blingbling, but will lock up all the time, go with the smaller rexes and you will get the correct length e-brake cables in the deal too. get yourself a good bushing set while those suspension pieces are apart too.
theres no use to upgrade unless you are running really fast times or have a really powerful car. the drumb breaks are lighter than the disk breaks. So you will save weight. If you want to stop quicker, you should upgrade the front! not rear.
Gee, I could have sworn that my 87 Integra front discs and my 89 CRX front discs were the same diameter. Actually, I just looked up the part numbers for the the rotors I replaced on both cars with Powerstop Cross Drilled rotors - both of them used #PWR-JBR-304L & 304R. This makes them the same size. I believe 90 and up Teg's might have larger rotors, but the 86-89 are just like the Rex's. Rear disc I am not sure of as my rex has drums in the rear.....
Question to those of you with the rear disc conversion. Does the conversion effect your cornering or handling in any way?? I heard that the conversion really messes with your cornering/braking.....just want some feedback. I may just stick with my drums and change out the hardware, and upgrade my front brakes to CRX SiR brakes and use steel lines all the way around.
there is no way it would affect the handling. you are swapping trailing arms, but the part is identicle to the arms that are on the rex right now, minus the splines for the disc vs. drum. the only difference would be a weight gain with the disc's. but not that much gain to affect handling.
