Front LCAs

I searched a bit but couldn't find anything.
Does anyone know if the 92-95 (EH/EG) or the 96-00 (EJ/EK) Front Lower Control Arms will work on the 88-91 (ED/EF) chassis?

Why switch? if anything just get some poly bushings pressed in to your stock one for a upgrade.

Front LCA's?  No way, no day. Apples meet Oranges.  Completely different front suspension design after the EF.

FWIW, the rear LCA's on the EG's may fit but I don't believe that they're the exact same dimensions and am fairly certain the shock bushing in the RLCA is narrower than on the EF.

The diameter of the shock was slightly larger on the EG and EK, but if you plan on using the whole unit (including the fork), i thought that they were interchangeable.

Hmm...I was looking into it because there are extended ball joints (roll center adjusters) for the 92-00 Honda Civics. I figured there were width differences due to the different fork sizes, but I am not sure about length, bushing housing diameters, and mounting points for the other components.

The shock and fork assembly can be swapped across generations.  He's asking about the front Lower Control Arm.  No dice on that part.  Honda went from LCA's and Radius Rods on the EF cars to a one piece with compliance bushings.  Again it
'll be apples and oranges.

BTW, the roll center geometry on these cars is very good stock and stays above ground even when lowered pretty considerably.  Basically, you don't need roll center adjusters on an EF at any reasonable/race ride height.

Ah, indeed.
