    if the inside of the tire is going down. then your TOE needs to be adjusted

    You need a camber kit. No Civic from 88-00 had any kind of OEM camber adjustment. If you had a 2001+, you could adjust the upper mount point of the strut by adding camber plates, but you can't do anything like that on the older (and better) double wishbone suspension.

    id say swap'em, and slow down.

    there is not reason stock peices should throw your camber that far off.

    No, because there's no camber adjustment built into the suspension on your 91 hatch. You need to add it if you want to have the ability to adjust your camber.
