TOOLS NEEDED: Ratchet, extensions, metric sockets, metric combination wrenches, Phillips and Flat-blade screwdrivers, Impact screwdriver, needle nose pliers, rubber mallet, sledgehammer, chisel, sawzall, impact guns, paint pen, torch, grinder with flap disc and wire brush, hydraulic press

DIFFICULTY LEVEL: 3 out of 5

Now that we’re feeling pretty good about ourselves for pulling the old suspension off the car, it’s time to set up our new stuff. Here I’ll take you through the prep work to make your Integra disc conversion good as, or better than, new. There are a few steps involved that require some less common tools like a sawzall, torch and hydraulic press that you might need to borrow from a friend. Just tell them you’ll help them move in the future then lose their number when your car’s done.
