Do 88-91 civic/crx springs fit on a 94-01 Integra?

I have run EG/DC springs on an EF but it sat too high. So by "theorectical logic" EF lowering springs should sit lower in a 94-01 integra? Right?

BTW I am running Koni Yellows (made for DC/EG)

Thanks in advance

I'm sorry but it boggles my mind why people do this.. why not just get springs made for your car?

Thanks for the help.

Perhaps it is because I just pulled apart my CRX which is running eg/dc aftermarket lower control arms and Koni Yellow shocks from an eg/dc. With NEW Progress Springs (EF). STILL ASSEMBLED!!!

I have just purchased a 96 integra so I KNOW can reuse the Shocks & LCAs (still assembled) but unsure of the Progress springs. I also have a set of H&R race currently in the integra on stock shocks(5 years old)... So rather than make more work for myself by disassembling everything I can just bolt up the assembled units w/ the Progress springs.

Hopefully this explanation "unboggles" your mind with such a complex question!!?

88-91 shocks will not work on 92-95 smaller diameter
88-91 springs will not fit properly in a 92-95 shocks they are too narrow

92-95 shocks will not fit in 88-91
92-95 springs will work in 88-91 shocks with modification and will make the car sit higher in the front end.

thats what i learned trying it on my ef

I have ITR coilovers on my 4th gen. They fit fine, after a few subtle mods.

wrong. if you use the 92-95 shock forks, they will fit an ef. i know this because i personally had a set of 92-95 Ohlins shocks on my old zc ef. my boy also races with eg Teins on his ef. all you need are the proper forks.

This is correct. I completely agree.

Right now I am USING:

92-95 (eg) Koni Yellows in a CRX
92-95 (eg) Megan rear LCA's
92-95 (eg) front forks
88-91 (ef) Progress Springs

everything works fine.

What I am concerned about is using this suspension setup in a 94-01 (dc) integra. Specifically the Springs!

Everything else will bolt up.

Thanks for the replies!
