OK , 64 Views , Two Days and No thoughts ~ Man U Guys don't Know Me - do Ya !

OK Looks Like White Line ~ Anti Lift Kit will be a FIT !
Let’s say the control arms are the same lengths, which they aren’t, then you would also have to change the spindle or fabricate the ball joint. Accord, the ball joint is bolted to the control arm whereas the civic accepts the ball joint into the control arm.

I know the CTR has a bespoke front suspension to improve handling and reduce torque steer. Wouldn't we need to replace/modify the full assembly from the control arms-out for this to work at all? Outside of the bushings that connect the control arms to the body, IM not too sure that any of these parts would be swap-able

OK, I'll Go Measure again the Width of the Peg on the LCA that Holds - Number #18 in the Provided Diagrams #9 Part VS #18 Part . .

This week has been **** ~ Dish washer Broke ~ then the Microwave went on the Frizitts - that's Over the Oven Model so it's 60 + Lbs and Specially Mounted
Bitch-in Thing . .

Accord's - Comparing Two LCA Bushing & Support - OK some may under stood Support as the LCA - Arm It is NOT
Support is the Metal Around the Bushing ..
Bushing is Not as wide on the Type R , Bushing Bracket Support on the "Accord" - looks also to be Fuller Filled Out with Bushing Material .
Allowing more Movement & Cushioning . . seeing Accord is Heavier ..

Square Peg in Round Hole is Very Close same ..Amount was so small I'd say is was Manufacturing Differences .. It is much "Harder" to Measure - C/L Dimensions ..
Bolt Pattern - But that said Metal Thickness , Welds , Holes , Manufactured Nut , Threads , etc. - Total Up to 1 Conclusion same Support Bracket - which Contains Bolt Hole Pattern .
Also through in Manufactures are trying to Spread use of 1 Part to several Lines of Vehicles ..
( Why toss more Money at Designing new bracket when Honda change Bushing Materials ) Size ..shape ..

Without A 100% Measuring Validation ~ I'm still Calling the Bracket ~ SAME . .
