Would 5g shocks/springs fit a 4g?

The title says it all. I am looking for some 4g shocks/springs and I found a guy with a set of fifth gen from an SI. I wanted to know if they would fit my 4th gen S

Si from Canada or do you mean an SH?

If it's a base US 5th gen, it interchanges with the 4th gens.

5th gen Base are a drop in swap for 4th gens and you reuse your 4th gen springs. To use 5th gen SH shocks you will need to use 5th gen SH springs to make them fit

Might raise the front a tiny bit. 5th gen front springs are a little stiffer because they're a little heavier

So it will end up giving a worse ride? Uhgg.... I can't win! I tried messaging 3 people on here selling 4th gen shocks but they don't respond! All well. Thanks for the responses.

you will not have any issues. they will fit 92-01 preludes including the 97-01 SH. trust me i know. lol.

i have an SH and both KYB and Eibach list their products as not fitting an SH. they are wrong. they did not test them on an SH when doing R&D.

so my SH has KYB AGX's and the EIBACH ProKit

good luck
