curious about suspension

Hello, Ive got some questions regarding suspension. I have a 98 base model with aprox. 190k. The car came from west virginia where i assume the roads get salted frequently during the winter months because there is a decent amount of rust under my car, mostly around the places where a bolt is fastened.

1. I need to know what parts are included in the suspension specifically for a prelude. Because mine are pretty worn and was looking to replace all of these components for all 4 wheels. And if anyone could direct me to a good place to find them. Anything that will increase performance in these area's will be taken into consideration also.

2.I recently purchased a pair of tokiko blue gas shocks with springs. But now i would like to lower my car a lil. Will i have to get new shocks if i get coilover's or does it matter, and what are some good brands. sorry for the dumb question.

3. i was cleaning my egr yesterday and there was a loud squeak anytime the pressure of my body leaned over the car. Wondering what it might be. the shock and spring are new.

4. Off topic question- My motor is puttering to an end in the performance dept. Still just as reliable but has lost alot of umph. I'm looking for a new lesser mileage engine. i was considering a few things but my knowledge is limited. Maybe you could help me, I was wondering if you could just drop a type s engine(h22a7/h22a8) into a base 98 with no fabrication? Is the engine the same just a few internal components upgraded or is the block built better? OR should i just get a jdm h22a4 and build it. Which would be cheaper? Thanks.

Re: curious about suspension

You leaning on the car and it squeking sounds like a blown shock or one that's on it's way to giving out. Since you already have some Tokio blues you can buy some lowering springs like Tein S Skunk2 ETC cost's 200 and up.
