yeah but you have to change the rear control arms, i hear that stock itr shocks are like a koni shock

its a 96 ek civic hatch....i can get the whole suspension from a type r, including type r lower control arm...so put the type r lca and use the type r shocks wit sum skunk2 coilovers

Umm I believe you are mistaken. The ITR Shocks should work if you have it the itr lower control arms.

the shocks will "fit" but wont fit properly. ur suspension geometry will get thrown off if u use the ITR LCA and shock on an EK

ctr lower control arms are a different length compared to itr control arms. 6th gen civics have longer control arms, so whoever said you need ctr lca's is correct.

go with aftermarket koni's...its a better setup.

if u just want 5 lug u dont need to change the shocks out. just replace the brake system (front knuckles and rear trailing arms).
