    is it ok to use a set of brake pads originally bought for a 2000 civic
    on a 1989 civic? the size is identical - i'm wondering about pad material.

    the part # of the 2000 pads on the box is 45022-SR8-A01

    thanks!

    looks identical to me!

    anyhow, tried these new pads this afternoon and in the process
    discovered something totally unexpected.

    the helm manual for the '89 civic states that "standard" disk thickness
    is 19mm, but all new disks are 20mm, even genuine honda! this means you
    have to skim a brand new disk before fitting because 20mm fouls the
    caliper - as i found out the hard way.

    bizarre.

    I thought the thickness of the rotor should not affect the caliper much as
    the distance between the pad and rotor varies as they get used anyway.

    Is the 1mm really too much for the calipers? how did they get fouled?

    it's not the floating bit, it's the fixed bit. just too narrow -
    touches on the outside face.
