I did my brake swap this passed saturday. The elx brakes are the same as the gt so i went for it. The ball joins on the dx are bigger then the scort so i had to swap over those as well. As far as everything else, was a direct swap over.
swap over list includes

SS brake lines
escort caliper, knuckle, carbon fiber metalic pads, baer decla brake rotors, ball joints

Was nice to see the axle splines were the same and the tie rods plugged in now problem.

Only down side is that it seems the bearings dried out after mostly sitting for so many years. So looks like some new hub bearings will still be on agenda after the tax money comes in.

Next weekend will be trying to swap over the EGT complete rear suspension. Wish me luck everyone, I so hope this is a direct swap over like i think it will be.

Sry i have not gotten to the rear yet, with the weather and marriage issues i have been a bit slow to get things taken care of. I might just say screw everything and try and do a bunch of things this weekend.
