Don't forget the 40/40 prop valve for the disc brake swap and the ebrake cables but for the most part its all the same. The info for any question you have is probably out there. Otherwise I'm doing the same thing now if you have anything specific.

The rear struts are different between EG/DC and EK. The EK uses a narrower bushing on their lower control arm. The lower control arm is also longer on the EK.

Why would you need to use gsr axles? You would only need tye axles if you swapped the motor to the gsr

Did the DC chassis ever change that or was it just the civics?
