2k1 Civic and RSX =Same Suspension.

I Just checked it out and confirmed it. The RSX and Civic have all the same suspension parts. All Part numbers for suspension parts match up. Even the Strut Tower bars and Rear lower tie bars. Even the dang lowering springs. Checked Neuspeeds sight.. and Eibach. OEM parts on the RSX are better tuned however.

Just my $.02

Cheers
Mohawk

Yep, out 7th gens sit on Honda's universal chassis. [IMG]i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif[/IMG] If full coil-overs come out for the RSX they should also fit the 7th gen civics. They have more parts to choose from and we do as well. Me likes!

But shouldn't the spring rate be different on RSX? It's heavier than our car and the weight distribution is different and all that. For the previous gen Civic I know alot of ppl uses parts from the Teg (especially Type-R springs) and the ride becomes a little too bouncy.

Firefly.. Nuespeed Race springs have the same part no for RSX and Civics.. and the weight difference is not exactly drastic[IMG]i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif[/IMG]. The OEM RSX parts are tuned differently, Spring rates.. damping and such.. but it's the same hardware.

ok, yes, the springs and camber kits and etc are the same, but the struts ARE NOT...i spoke to koni several days ago for a good 30 minutes, and we were speaking about the differences between the rsx and civic, and unfortunetly the dimensinos of the struts for the rsx are unfortunetly LONGER......

what i was hoping for is a shorter stock strut assembly in the rsx, which would mean that an aftermarket strut for the rsx would be shorter then an aftermarket strut for the civic, which would mean when installed in a civic with lowered springs that more suspensino travel would be available....

SORRY to burst everyones bubbles! [IMG]i/expressions/face-icon-small-sad.gif[/IMG]

I called up Comptech Sports to see if they have 22mm Rear Sway bars in development for the 01+ and the guy on the phone told me that they were working on the RSX first. IF the suspension components are similar, then it would rapidly accelerate the development of 22mm adjustable sways on our Vics. This is good news that the RSX & Civic platform are similar. That means we are not limited to Neuspeeds 19mm rear sway or Eibach's 18mm... (not really 18, but in previous models, the rear is 18). 22mm will definitely make the 01 dance, or if Mugen comes out with a RSX 26mm rear sway like they did the Integra Type-R, I'll definitely put that on my ride.

Interesting thread.



<< does this apply to civic sedans too? >>



I pretty sure it's the same. In fact the suspension description for the 2002 EL (Canadian verison of the EX sedan) is word for word exactly the same as the RSX. Does it mean their exactly the same? Probably not, but probably similar enough that you can use parts from the RSX.

Still waiting for a decent solution to the rear bounce...
