    I just did a 4dr 90 teg/civic rear swap that turned out ok.. The only part that I saw that was different was the lower control arm was straight for the teg and bent for the civic. I think the teg is slightly longer also. BUT the swaybar wont work from the teg.

    i was messing with it last night and i found out that the upper control arm is a hair wider than the 91 civic si control arms im tempted to drill out the bolt holes on the car to make it work

    I wouldn't go that far.. If it won't bolt up it could be dangerous.
    I tightened up the arms before I lowered it to the ground and it looked jacked up. I was late leaving for work and couldn't change it so i had to drive it like that..
    I think i tore some rubber mounts doing that.

    Four door EF EX front spindles swap right on and are bigger brakes than the DX, But no matter what route you go, DA, Si, or the fodo spindle you will have to use Si axles.

    well i got my hatch friday and went to town on strippin the car out as well as the suspension i was able to make the integra spindle work without cutting or drilling... all i did was take that bar that runs from side to side on the back side of the upper control arm and bolted the upper control arm where it belongs and it fit like stock.. so now ill be running integra brakes all the way around on my swaped dx hatch
