I would like to know how to hook up the lines from the rear brakes to the MC? U have to run the rubber lines all the way from the rear to the MC?? and change the MC to an Integra MC so it had the inserts for the Rear brakes lines????

Please explain how it works?

90-91 civic EX sedan steering knuckles is what you need to start you off. you could use the integra ones, but they are about 1" longer and will throw off the geometry of the front susp a lil bit. otherwise how much work will depend on how handy you are, how many tools you have, and how rusted your car is.

you need 90-93 integra e brake cables you need the brake proportioning valve and the rear rubber brake hose that goes from the capiler to the hard brake line thats it.
