will rsx (dc5) coilovers work on a 01 civic ex (em2) with 5 lug conversion?

i did a 5 lug conversion when i did the swap back when, and kept my stock suspension. now looking for suspension and wondering if i shld just go with aftermarket rsx coilovers.
a buddy of mine is selling tein set for cheap and dnt wanna pass them up as long as they fit.
thanks

I think you'll need to drill out the crash bolts to match the RSX's 16mm ones. The 01-02 civics have 14mm crash bolts.

Also for the fronts, you'll need the tie rod ends of an RSX. For the rear you'll need to shave down the bushings i believe...

Im pretty sure about this, check on 7thgenhonda, there should be more info!

you will also need to drill out 16mm crash bolts for the front, because you have 14mm ones right now.

For the rear you'll need to shave down the bushings for the lower shock about 3mm i believe....
