SWEET!!!

Does this also allow using the Right side caliper on the R instead of having to switch them?

Availability of those parking break cable brackets? I need them as soon as they are available pretty please!

I suspect you are correct. My understanding is that our rear axle is beefier than the JDM one. For a change, it seems we got the better part.

Any fear of the notch weakening the spring/shock perch area? The pics look like it was a fairly minor tweak.

The shock attachment area is very well boxed in so the minor amount we had to trim won't hurt at all.

The calipers mount the same way they do on the RSX, R on right, L on left.

The brackets for the cables will be available as soon as we can get the time on the laser cutter.

We are also getting the Wavetrac folks to make the limited slip diff for the L15 and 2.0 6 speed tans. Won't be ready for 90-120 days but it's in the works. These will be available thru Wavetrac once finished.
