Can anybody point me in the right direction for getting the correct type of brake pads both front and rear for my Integra.

I have a 2006 DC5 Integra Type-R and i would like links to sites that can provide the right size break pads for the brembo's that come with the car.
I don't think the USDM RSX comes with brembo.

I've found this link... But it's spoon and very expensive..

why is it so hard to search for this online? Isn't there some site that i can get replacement pads for that particular brembo caliper?

Are you sure this part for the 350Z will work.?
any more suggestions... links would be helpful...

Bro, I had the same setup on my EP3 and have also the same setup on a EP3 race car, they are the same pads, I had a thread before here in K20a, where a bunch of guys helped me to figure the that same question that you are asking.

The Nissan Sentra Spec V with the Brembo pads have the same size pads as the STi, 350Z, and G35 but are way cheaper even through the dealer. If it's the same size as your DC5-R then it might be worth looking into to save some money.

Sorry, I meant what calipers did you end up using on the rears? I know you had a couple different sets, did all of them require a separate caliper (wilwood?) for the E-brake?
Ohhh, I changed Chassis, and just used EP3 rear Disks and Rotors in the EK., The rear Brembo's from the EVO VIII that I was planning to use in the EP3, are now installed in the Race car as front calipers, with front EP3 Rotors.

I have read that the evo and sti pads are a different thickness due to the rotor offsets being a lil different. I will post where I read it when I am home.

Yes Evo and STI are different.
Do you have a list of how OEM Brembo packages are different from each other? I think that would be pretty cool.
This is all I have really found, but I have not really been digging yet as I am not at that point in my build.

EVO rotors
Front = 320mm
Rear = 300mm

STI
Front = 326mm
Rear = 316mm

another interesting note is that the EVO front rotors are 32mm wide whereas the STI fronts are 30mm wide. They use the same Brembo caliper but the EVO actually uses 1mm skinnier brake pads! so you can use EVO pads on STI and just be short a bit of pad life(Ive dont this on my STI) but you cant use STI pads on an EVO unless you turn the rotors down 2mm. Some companies, Like EBC, only make one part number for EVO and STI pads and just cheat STI guys out of 1mm on each pad, lol.

One other difference in the fronts, besides the diameter, is the hat height(offset) the STI(53mm) is almost identical to the 300ZX(54mm) whereas the EVO is 43.5mm. Since Im designing custom brackets anyways, I can make them to whatever offseet they need to be to fit, though all things being equal, the EVO rotors will move the Brembo caliper about 10mm closer to the wheel than the STI or Z32 rotors, so that could be a clearance problem depending on what wheel your running, the best combo might be EVO rear rotors and 05+ STI(%X114) front calipers to keep the offset as close to stock as possible, and they're 6mm bigger to boot!

I am running DC5R front and rear suspension with Brembo calipers on my 2002 EP3. For the front I am using Endless SSS400 pads ($170.00). For the rear RSX-S factory pads will work fine.

This might seem like a silly question but do the brake pads have to come from another vehicle that has Brembos? And where do you find replacement rotors for this swap in the United States? Or even axles? I hear that they need to be longer since the stance is wider. Would you be able to source any of these parts from say the S2000 or the latest SI?

Is the OEM A-Spec Brake upgrade the same or similar? Cause in the pictures I've seen it looks like they have brembos too

Hopefully I can chime in now and add more details later as I get them. I just got a full DC5R suspension swap to put on my EP3 once it warms up. The pads and rotors are good now but I want to get a jump on finding replacements.

I have been told and will confirm once I take everything apart that the pads are the same as the Nissan 350Z with Track Package or the Infinity G35 with Brembos. These pads are different from the rest of the pads Honda/Acura offer. The have two holes on the outer edge of the pad where a post goes through them.

Rotors we are a little less lucky. I have not been able to find any rotor from another Honda/Acura vehicle that is the same as the DC5R rotor. It may be unique to the Brembo kit. People have told me that KingMotorsports, J's Garage, and OPAK Racing can get them, but I haven't even called in fear of the price. I emailed FastBrakes and they told me they have not been able to find a matching domestic rotor. They make custom 2 piece rotors for the application that are $520 for the front set. I will spend some more time at my local parts store once I get the rotors off trying to find a set that works but I'm not optimistic. I will most likely source a set from the importer that got me the suspension.

Yes the axles are longer. Should be 7.5mm on each side since the track of the car is 15mm wider. I'm getting the axles with my swap and will probably look to source an extra set later in the year.
