    I think that'll make your rex sit too high. I'd just buy a set of Tein coilovers or better.

    you need the integra suspension...for the rear you need the trailing arms,lower control arms,hubs,ebrake cable,and all that stuff...
    for the front you needs,the springs,struts,lower control arms upper a-arm and hubs..just take the front off as one whole assembly per side itll save time and work

    This won't work without serious modification! The dc2 integra suspension bolts onto a 92-95 civic. It won't work with anything older.

    Maybe's he wanting to do the 90-93 suspension? Either way, I think it's a waste of time. Unless you've got a full donor car to pick parts off of, you might as well just buy after-market stuff for the CR-X.

    Just shell out around $1,000 for quality adjustable coilovers and if you're lowering the car get a camber kit for each side while you're at it should run about an extra $100-150.

    Well DA brakes would be a good upgrade from the ear drums on the crx. Other than that, its a waste.

    get a 90-91 civic EX an swap the front brakes .use the front knuckles with the calipers you end up with larger dia. rotors its the best set up for the money .its killer braking just with that set up.

    What exactly are you trying to swap over?

    The shocks will swap over(may ride a little higher; will have to use the Integra shock forks also; and the 88's have the same style rears as the ITR). The +94 rear brakes will swap over too; just use the stock LCAs, links and Si ebrake cable..

    Sorry all, even though its accurate i wasnt as specific about what im doind. I said suspension which is true but mainly and or also the 4 lug hub assembly, I found a site that sells a stock 5 lug set up for an 94 ls integra and yes i have a complete donor car with all the stuff i was wondering what i would have to do to get the integra hubs and all to fit. I also have lowering springs on the integra,would i be able to use just the springs for the 90 CRX Si or is there modding to do. And again the site sells the 5 lug hub to fit the integera ls hub assembly Naturaly no mods. So what i was hoping is to just buy the hubs put it on the 94 setup and then that setup on the rex and have 5 lugs for dirt cheap, then doing a type r convert.
    Thanx also for the positve responses

    Integra's front won't fit correctly. Some guy did that to his CRX and had to lower the car over 4" just to get zero camber. Definitely not practical.

    You can try to get some custom hubs and press those into your stock knuckles, or have those hubs turned down by a machine shop.

    I thought it was a good idea to have a little negative camber?

    +94 Integra front knuckles on EF=positive camber. He had to slam it to get zero.

    Doesn't fit. The shafts are different widths. Only way to make it fit is narrowing down the 5-lug hub shaft with a lathe(may make it weaker), and using custom 5-lug rotors or convert to a ITR brake system(using 90-91 EX knuckles; with the stock knuckles you'd need to use an adapter to move the caliper out).

    the teg upper A arms will rub on the inner fenders of the rex, just buy the suspension, koni+groundcontrol, ksport, tien, etc.... you will be more pleased with those results
