    Everything can be fit in nicely, just like buying a dc2 b18 halfcut, everything from that halfcut can be directly transferred to an eg chassis, even the suspension, brakes.
    I hope this helps.

    Based on my experience, specific part designed to handle the car's body, weight and etc to improve stability. There is no doubt that you can fit almost all chassis part of DC2 into EG's body, but sometimes the part is meant to be too good for certain chassis. For example, installing some aftermarket anti roll bars that is harder than TYPE R into a GSR body may end up causing the arm crack. Knowing your car chassis's potential and limitation is a very important step that cant be missed before proceed with any modification.

    There's a very good example too on absorber. Eg's absorber is designed to support EG's weight, length and etc. If we are installing EG's absorber into a DC2, in fact it's not so suitable that resulting too low or too harsh on a DC2.

    As a conclusion, study more on your own ride's specification and understand your need. Don't end up modify something that you don't like and force yourself to cope with it especially absorber.

    Hope this help.

    1.dc2R front lower arm install on eg6/9?
    - just plug n play, coz it's also sr3 code.

    2.dc2R stereng shaft on eg6/9?
    - just a little bit mod.

    3.dc2R crossmember to replace ori eg6/9?
    - also plug n play... no mod

    FYI : dc2 type r crossmember (include lower arm, antiroll bar, steering rack) also can put on EK chasis.

    i have done full conversion of b18cR on my eg. Everything works better. The suspension is better. The beefier anti roll bar from dc2 will increase your cornering. Even try a full tank at sepang until it dry out. Really good even with stock dc2 susp. but of course i give my ride a full slick.

    i think everything from DC2R can be fitted into the EG with no problem..and would work quite well

    but its best you get an adjustable hi lo soft hard absorber to tune it with
    i've done a full conversion from dc2 gsr into egbody...so far im happy with most of the thing..except for the suspension..hoping to save enough money to change a good absorber soon
