If you keep your eyes open at the local pick n pull you can grab the 4 piston front calipers from the 2nd gen Acura RL type SH sedan. From there I'm sure you can find an adapter online from fastbrakes.com with the correct rotors for an upgrade. I picked up a pair of calipers about a month ago for about $90.
Thought you wanted brand name aftermarket for looks? Those Acura units would need to be cleaned and painted, provided you can find an adapter first.That’s a good idea! I will keep looking for those Acura RL brakes.
Just to be clear, there are not any known caliper adapters for the CRV and the Acura calipers shown were never mounted on a CRV.I don't show any direct bolt on adapters for newer CRVs, but if the newer generation CRV uses a front brake system that shares parts from another model, then the in stock adapters may work.
I bought the calipers because I've always wanted a set and we were going to try to adapt them to my son's 01 Accord, but he's changed his mind and we're going to hang onto them for his next project - either a TSX or a Prelude.
Saving for some like those below:Probably true, but if the CRV uses the same caliper as another model then there may be an option available. You would have to cross-reference caliper part numbers to be sure.
If not, then with a lot of careful measuring, you could either make some adapter brackets or have some made. You would also have to find a rotor the fit.
