I know this may not be the right spot but if this can be stickyd, heres some info from a guy on hondacivicwagon.com

So, to end all of the confusion he went to the junkyard and measured the few struts n here are the measurements

Front Struts (measured from top of fork to top of strut body):
85-89 Accord - 8.125"
88-89 Prelude - 8.125"
89-91 Civic - 9.5"
90-93 Integra - 9.5"

Rear Struts (measured from center of bolt to top of strut body):
89-91 Civic - 13.25"
92-95 Civic - 13.25"
90-93 Integra - over 14" - for some reason I didn't write it down right
85-89 Accord - 15.375"
88-89 Prelude - 16.5"
96-00 Civic - 12.875"

So the verdict is that the Accord front struts are the shortest and the ek civic rear struts are the shortest with or without bottom fork cutting off and welding yours if theyre different, if not slap it right on with your new coil sleeves.

I had air bags on my civic for 3yrs. When I took them off, I bought cheapo coilovers and I still have them on right now. I never messed with them adjusting them up or down. Just set them and forgot them. I bought skunk2 knock off for $40 on craigslist a few months ago. Haven't had a chance to put them on. Waiting to re-do my Spun wheels I have. Then I will buy new shocks from autozone or something. I like the Monroe shocks. They've always been good.

I'm just not into all that new stuff they sell now. $600-$1,400 in suspension is just waaaay tooo much money for me.

Ok I just researched it and all I've seen is bad reviews from eBay coil sleeves if you could point me in the direction that you actually bought a coil sleeve that didnt break then that would help out alot

main reason why people talk crap about ebay coil overs is because A. they cost sooo cheap and nobody wants to admit they have cheapo coil overs. They rather drop $100's on better stuff and B. the people that have broken ebay coil overs is because they mess with them every other week. They adjust them up and down and up and down.... That's retarded. Just put them on and leave them set to where you want them. If not, then buy lowering springs and if it's not too low for you, freken cut them! lol. They won't break and you don't have to worry about nothing with cut springs...
