If you decide to do this i have a set of the springs off a 95 del sol that i totalled out

IF they even fit (which I would doubt)...I would think the spring rates and the valving of the shocks would be all wrong for the Integra, a car that weights a few hundred pounds (at least) more than a Del Sol.

i thought i saw someone who had this set-up and it was lowered also, the del sols sit very low stock, an the teg is heavier so i figured the spring would be more compressed therefore lowering it

Wouldnt you also think its not safe since the teg is so much heavier and the spring rates ARE NOT designed for your car? Why not just get lowering springs for an integra? Do it right the first time.

If you want a mild drop and want OEM quality get some ITR springs. .50-.75 drop. If you have a question about shocks then you can search the suspension forum for all the info you will ever need.

Also check the articles we have on suspension.

would it work?

yes, the integra/civic/del sol use the same suspension setups as far as i know. everything on my 92 hatch so far has been the same as on the teg, and im sure that the del sol would not be any different.
a. because it is a Civic
b. because the itr swabar can still attach up with out modifcation of the endlink points. suggesting that is uses many of the same peices (see C.)
c. because honda is cheap and uses the same parts where ever possible.

is it a good idea? dunno, figure out the spring rates.

What's with the notion that having the wrong springrates is dangerous?
?

The curb weight for the Del Sol is around 2400 lbs....a G3 Integra is closer to 2700 lbs.

Do you really want to be driving around with a suspension that is designed for a car that is 300 pounds lighter than yours? Sounds to me like the recipe for a suspension failure...maybe while you're driving down the highway at 65 mph.

Keeping in mind that a set of lowering springs can be had for like ~$150 or whatever anyways...Doesn't seem like a worthwhile risk to take to me.

I still find it hard to believe that there would be a failure. And my teg weighs right about 2400 without being stripped.
I found it hard to believe too, i don't think it has anything to do with the spring rate, but more like with the shocks... see, you guys are throwing in those insane stiff spring rate of 400-600lbs... so if you are saying spring rate would result a dangerous drive, then i think all those people with aftermarket spring rate would be dead by now...?

See... if a softer spring rate would result a dangerous drive, then i don't know why Tein makes their S Tech spring (1.8" drop) with lower spring rates than our car.
