OK here goes, I have a 95 civic EX with no ABS brake sys., and I found a wrecked civic exactly like mine exept that it has 4-wheele disc brakes and ABS.
Question #1 How hard would it be to change mine over to ABS, is it even practical ?
Question #2 If above question is out then could I at least change the rear drums for the rear disk brakes, and what would I need to change and how much do you think I should pay to the junk yard ?..............Anyone!

Thanks: Darold

question 2 is doable, all youknow to do is switch out the entire ARM...pretty simple... you can even do it yourself....

question 1 is em... i have no idea to tell you the truth, but im sure it can be done and would be worht it

Evidently the person with the wrecked Civic didn't realise he had them on his car =)
Maybe they will work better for me

its an option... and who ever bought my Si brand new probably decided, "hey i dont need ABS" so therefore i have no ABS

i have that same issue daniel. but i dont think my speed or an ABS system woulda played factors in my accident. that bich just pulled slap out in front of my ass and STOPPED! i am satisfied with or without ABS, i gots an Si so it don't even matter! :mrgreen:

oh, and also the lady at the insurance company lied for me and said i DO have ABS, so i would have cheaper insurance. :headbang:

"Do you have ABS?"

"No"

"Well, we'll just say you do, so you can get a discount"

Try arguing with that! :wink: :mrgreen:

daniel, abs would have made your situation worse.......... instead of stopping and having two flat spots, your car would've slammed into the back of her car with nice round tires....remember, abs makes it harder for your car to stop.
