Does anyone know if suspension components are interchangeable between the 10G Civic Si and the Accord, in terms of dimensions?

I currently own a 2019 Accord 2.0T 6MT and I'm looking at coilovers for it and wondered if Civic Si setups might physically fit, with different spring rates of course. The upper and lower mounts look like they might be the same, but I didn't know if the front sway bar end link mounts were in the same location, etc. I currently have an Eibach Pro spring kit on the car, along with a Progress rear sway bar, and I am just not happy with the springs. They're supposedly designed to work with the stock dampers but it does seem like the dampers aren't keeping up, and the springs lowered the car more than Eibach claimed (like 1.25" as opposed to the claimed 0.75") which doesn't really work where I need to drive daily. I know RS*R has a kit for the Accord and BCs are available, but I'm currently running a set of Fortune Auto 500s on my 2012 Acura TL SH-AWD 6MT and wondered if the Civic FA 500s might actually fit on the Accord because I've enjoyed them.

They're making the 500 for Accords soon. I think June release.

Everyone I have talked to at Progress and Hasport have both told me they are the same. I have also read this on numerous forums and other places. I have never inquired about the fsb, but honestly I would stay away from it unless your going to track the car(now take that with a grain of salt from someone who HATES understeer). It's a horrid to get to in this car and of you feel there is too much oversteer for your liking with the setup your planning, there are several chassis braces for the front and center of the car that can tune that out for you. You can also use the smaller progress 20mm bar as well. I did a write up on the differences between the two different progress bars(I have run both) I'll try and find it for you when I have a sec.

I reached out to FA today and they actually said they are planning to release coilovers for the Accord this week. I also confirmed that they will be able to offer them with longer shock bodies to allow for maintaining stock ride height if you don't want to drop the car 1" out of the box. That is what I've done previously to allow me to only drop the car 0.5"-0.75" and still be able to drop the car at least another 1", if desired.

FA on sale now with Swift upgrade. Code FORTUNEACCORDS
I thought it was interesting that they were showing that the rear spring rate could be changed, since on the Civic Si setup they only have one spring design available, with one spring rate. So I asked and apparently they're running linear springs in the rear as well as in the front, instead of the barrel-style spring as used in the Si setup, and running them in the stock location. So that's good and allows for spring upgrades It seems like they're very similar to the RS*R coilovers in form factor.

Only downside is rear damper adjustment is on the top of the shock. Have to take the wheel off to adjust. Rsr is positioned on the bottom. Easier access without having to take the wheel off, well depending on wheel style.
