    if they are sleeve coilovers then yes. Just make sure you buy coilovers designed for your car.

    Yippers, as a matter of fact, if you are lowering, and/or using higher rated springs, it is recommended that you use aftermarket shocks.

    Actually, some sleeved coilovers have different part numbers depending what aftermarket shock you are using, so make sure to specify. Or go with the Honda/Acura Ground Controll which acepts ALL aftermarket shocks.

    OR, use progressive sport springs. I had HP-Racing coilovers on my Civic for about 9 months, and I HATED them. The springs are to short to keep load on the suspension when full travel is reached. The collars and springs move around and make noise as well. I went to Eibach Sportlines, and I love them like a fat kid loves cake.
