Found and Unsure!! help.

hi everyone, sorry if this is a repost.

i found this Tein Coilovers tru online.

TIEN COILOVERS for sale - TradeMe.co.nz - New Zealand

it says, may suit prelude 91 up. (this was relisted)
i remember from the first time it was posted, someone asked if it would fit a 97-98 prelude(5th gen), the seller said yes. Well, I have 94 (Ba8) and is keen to get the set. - i also asked if it would fit my car, yes too!

so, i'm confused, 91 lude is 3rd gen right?
then, it would fit a 94 and a 97-98 lude?

What should i ask the seller so i'll know it's the right one (any codes or something)?

Thanks...

Re: Found and Unsure!! help.

Maybe they meant 92+ because yes 4th and 5th gen stuff is interchangeable but 3rd gen suspension is not.

Re: Found and Unsure!! help.

The first of the 4th gens were late '91. I friend of mine had a BA8 with OCT 91 on the build plate. However she wouldn't ask for parts for 91 Prelude because everybody (even Honda spare parts) would give her third gen parts.

Thanks peeps!

Re: Found and Unsure!! help.

Correct me if I'm wrong but judging from my coilovers the threaded part is what adjusts the height there is a stiffness adjuster on top (least koni yellows)

Re: Found and Unsure!! help.

yes, those are height/damper adjustable. you can rotate the little allen key on the very top of the strut to adjust the damper. clockwise is hard, counterclockwise is you guessed it, soft. the two silver rings on the bottom of the spring is how you adjust the height
