          the rears should bolt right up. He doesnt NEED to swap the LCAs (although the new ones probably have better bushings). Did you think he meant ITR DC2?

          Your sway stuff would bolt up too. The DA and DC non-R rear LCAs are the same thing as far as my tape measure and caliper can tell.

            Also, if you can, pick up the trailing arms. They have very new TA bushings as opposed to your decade+ old cracked TA bushings.

                    Anyone have pics of the dc/eg forks? Also is there any difference in handling between the setups?

                      since a lot of good suspension companies seem to leave out the DA chassis on their lists of applications, this allows us DA owners to incorporate a DC2/ITR suspension on our cars.

                        yep...when you do the conversion, this opens up a whole new world of spring/shock/coilover upgrades.

                        I'm definately very happy with my suspension setup...i even got to test it out on a road course....IMO, well worth it.

                        PS: I'm running ITR suspension, so i have the ITR LCAs, as well.

                            Will DC2 springs that drop 2" lower a DA 2" also? Any offset in drop between the two setups? Im leaning towards a neuspeed/h&r race setup and dont want any uneveness in lowering if I do the DC2 conversion.

                              I'm running ITR H&R Road race coilovers and they are almost at the highest threads to make my car a reasonable height...so, no...2" advertised drop on a DC does not = 2" drop on a DA with DC forks.

                                  Im running Tein HA's coilover for a DC-2R with full DC-2r suspension. I had to lower the front of the car more to match the rear.If i remeber corectly the front shocks for a DC have a longer travel so they raise up the car a bit.

                                    There is supposed to be moe wheel gap up front for the DA to ride balanced. Lowering both th same wheel gap tilts the car slightly forward as the wheel wells on th front fenders are slightly larger

                                      I lowered the car to where its even all around.

                                          depends on how low you go. IIRC the front forks drop you between 1/2 and 3/4 of an inch more than the DA forks, if you go down a couple inches from there you might scrape some places.
