    whats up fellas on a flight home traveling from Florida to California, thanks jet blue for the free wi fi. On my phone so serving kinda sucks.

    Anyways, my wife and I are thinking about getting her a 5th gen 4R, upgrading from a CRV, hate that thing. I also am thinking of upgrading my suspention. Question is will my current set up transfer directly in to a 5th gen? OME nitrochargers with 885 coils and LR UCA's. I don't know much about the 5th gen suspension, would I need anything else? I.e. I have a progressive AAL on my truck as well.

    I did try and look up parts to cross reference since I've been bored as hell on my phone but it appeared some part numbers were different. Thanks for any help you guys can give.

    Rear suspension is completely different.

    Front suspension is slightly different.

    Nothing will swap over except the UCA.

    Appreciate the feedback, figured the rear was different, was hoping more would swap over from the front. Oh well.

    The SPC/LR control arms are different part numbers due to the ball joints being different- otherwise they are the same.

    You can buy replacement ball joints for $70 at Jegs for the SPC/LR arms designed for the 4R. I believe the part is 25002.
