what control arms you use don't depend on what engine or suspension you have. it depends on what the person who did the suspension swap did, and I'm assuming it wasn't you since you're clueless. post a picture and I should be able to tell you what it is.

i think what he did was he used controls arm from a eg civic.

from what i heard is that he create a custom spot to bot it on.

is that safe?

basically when i got the car...there was still some small fixing.

when i went to a mechanic they told me the car is unsafe and it was butcher.


can someone recommend me a mechanic that knows about civic swaps that can do a diagnostic on it for me.


i need to know exautally what needs to be fix.

thanks

that sounds disasterous. post pics. I think you could swap the entire subframe out with a fresh one if yours is really butchered. or just give up and sell the car cheap.
