View Full Version : jdm type-r brakes

i found a set of jdm type r front calipers ep3 specific. what do i need to change to make them work? or will they bolt up and use the same pads? also im double checking. all i need to make dc5 coilovers fit is JUST the dc5 tie rod ends right?

im assuming the calipers will be a complete bolt-on. But i am not too sure. The dc5 coilovers will require the dc5 specific tie rod ends, if you use the ep3 specific ones, there will be play, as if they were worn.

The CTR calipers are the same as RSX-S' so you need Type-S pads and Rotors. It will all bolt up to your '05 but for the complete swap, people recommend getting the master cylinder as well to maintain the proper brake bias.

sweet. thanks for the help. i figured it was just the tierod ends but i wanted to make sure that was all i needed. and i had a feeling id have to use something from the type s for the brakes.
