I have a crx with da front knucles and I was told that I could fit Spoon calipers on it i got some custom legend rotors and made a custom bracket. Is it that easy or is there more involved?

You have a few options.
1. Buy Fastbrakes 2 piece rotor that has the correct offset for those calipers
2.Get Prelude rotors re-drilled to 4x100 and run a 3mm spacer underneath the rotor.
3.Get Prelude rotors redrilled to 4x100 and mill 3mm off the mounting surface of the caliper.

The Spoon TWINBLOCK caliper will bolt right onto EX and DA knuckles, the problem is they will require a rotor that has a different hat offset. The solutions exist above. I personally use the fastbrake rotor. Its a 2 piece design, quite pricey initially but the actual rotor can be replaced for a fair amount. Spoon can sell you a 3mm under-rotor spacer that they use when using their calipers on non-5lug setups. I wouldnt want to go milling a $1300 caliper. So yeah go get your money back....

You are almost certainly going to need wheel spacers and extended lugs for almost all 15 inch wheels and quite a few 16 inch wheels.

I dont remember what brand im using but when I bought my H&R spacers they came with 8 extended studs. You will want to call fastbrakes and order the rotor, just tell them you have DA knuckles and need the correct 2 piece rotor to run Spoon calipers. You will need a minimum of a 15mm spacer, I would recommend H&R, they are approved for use in Germany which has some of the strictest standards. I am using a 10mm spacer on the rear to almost match the wider track of the front. If you order a set of 15mm and a set of 10mm spacers it will save you from buying studs separetly

In running the spacers in the rear do you encounter wheel rubbing on the fender lip under sharp turning?

I havent driven the car yet but it appears (by eye-balling) it that I shouldnt have any issues. Certainly not if I roll the fender.
