    I'm swaping an LS engine into my 88 CRX and i had originally ordered progress B-series swap springs and Tokico HP's. My problem is I'm having a very hard time getting these progress springs (waiting 2.5 months now prepaid), so I'm going to cancel my order and get a different make of spring.


    My question is what springs will work with Tokico HP's on an LS swaped CRX?
    I chose progress originally b/c they specifically make a spring for this application b/c the LS engine is heavier than the stock D15, however I cant find any other manufacturer (Eibach, H&R etc) who does?

    Will Eibach, H&R or Neuspeed springs be just as good for this application? Anybody else here have an LS CRX?

    Thanks

    ground control makes a slip on coilover for swapped cars
    dunno how well they will match up with those shocks tough

    Is the LS engine that much heavier than the D15B to make a difference in terms of handling?

    My front end drooped after the swap with my Pro-Kit springs. It looked really weird.

    The B series swap is about 70 pounds heavier than the D series setup.
