Hey guys , I'll show you how to upgrade your rear brake by almost 1" the cheap way

Things you'll need :
-Rear brake disk from Honda Accord 08
>>>>-Rear caliper bracket from Honda Accord Hybrid 07 ( can be hard to find , but they're cheap )
-Rear brake pads from TSX 04-08

Difference will be : Rotor Diameter OEM : 10.225" , new size : 11.091"

This do not REQUIRES anything else beside some tools that you probably have

Honda didn't make a Hybrid Accord in 2008.
You're talking about a 05-07 Accord Hybrid.
You also need splash shields from the Accord Hybrid to properly complete the modification.

Yup I bought the rear braket from my friend at his junkyard and he told me these are from 08 accord hybrid but like you said they stopped in 07 and the model completely changed so my bad. I shouldn't trust a high guy in a junkyard sometime and verify my info. Thanks for the head up, I'll fix it !

But the disk from accord 08 will fit *

I'm guessing the Accord Hybrid brake rotors would work as well.
Too bad Honda doesn't sell the brackets separately.

No this is why it's cheap thought , I went to some place where they rebuild caliper and they had some but I got them for 10$ from the junkyard

Very interesting.

Also CU2 brakes upgrade could be an alternative.

[LE regarding CU2 brakes vs CL9]

CL9 front/rear discs size (300/260 mm)
CU2 front/rear discs size (320/305 mm)
also CU2 has dual pistons calipers and the front discs are much thicker

Info found on the EBC website (I hope it is accurate)

CU2/CL9 front discs

Vented Disc; 5 Bolt Holes; 320mm Diameter; 47mm Height; 32mm Thick; 30mm Minimum Thickness
Vented Disc; 5 Bolt Holes; 300mm Diameter; 47mm Height; 25mm Thick; 23mm Minimum Thickness

CU2/CL9 rear discs

Solid Disc; 5 Bolt Holes; 305mm Diameter; 57mm Height; 9mm Thick; 8mm Minimum Thickness
Solid Disc; 5 Bolt Holes; 260mm Diameter; 49mm Height; 10mm Thick; 8mm Minimum Thickness

You'll need to change caliper for the front and what about the rear ? Yes , you can upgrade but this one is mostly for the look since it cheap. I doubt that the caliper fits with the handbrake all that stuff unless you did it and wanna share ?

I know 2 guys did this swap, from CU2 to CL9 - I want it do it also, I'm looking for calipers.
It's a direct swap no alteration needed.
One of the guys has a topic on this here: https://hondakarma.com/threads/ichibans-2-4-accord-tourer-07.12463/live?page=2

lol just for the look?? The front calipers are dual pistons vs single piston on CL9 ... did you read the above numbers to see the difference for front and rear, in size and thickness of the discs??
