    Donor car is a '95 Integra GSR. Receiving car is a '93 Civic Si coupe.

    I want to know how much of the Integra will swap over to the Civic.

    So far I know the GSR and Si/EX use the same knuckles which accept the GSR brakes. I also get to use the GSR front and rear sway bars, under hood strut bar and rear trailing arms with disc brakes.

    Can I use the front subframe off the Integra? It has a stabilizer bar running parallel with the steering rack that isn't on the Civic. Some say the Integra steering rack will have a closer ratio too.

    Can I use the upper & lower control arms aswell?

    The Civic will also be receiving the GSR motor if that helps. :)

    My ideal plan was to put the Civic parts back on the Integra so I can roll the shell around.

    Some people online said they have done the subframe swap and its a direct replacement. You have to use Si/EX knuckles and LCAs or all Integra parts, DX Civic stuff won't work.

    Only one way to find out for sure!
