this might be a lame question for u guys but i really wanna know.
Is Del Sol Parts same as Civic Parts? Or similar?
Since it's at least a 8-10 yr old car by now, it's engine or whatever will start to deteriorate. So i'm afraid that if i wanna change the parts will it be difficult to find. :fear
thanks!

The del Sol also shares the same suspension as a 92-95 Civic and 94-01 Integra. I don't know if strut bars and sway bars will fit them all, but when it comes to struts, springs, coils, and camber kits then they will fit all 3 cars.

strut bars work too....so do the brakes (entire braking system)
everything in the engine bay is the same

if its a d15 then most civics dx/lx/hf/eg will have the same parts. if b16 then the parts may be a tad harder to find at a yard but you can always order them. what year/model do you have or looking to get?

PS-i was in a wreck and it took the body shop 3 months to get all the right parts in!(hood fixed, new bumper/fender, headlight/housing, right front quarter panel, and door. then the right color paint had to be made and applied. so the engine parts should be no prob, its the body youll have to worry about.

DONT spread misinformation!!!!!!!!if youre not sure dont say it... or make it obvious that you are not sure

no del sol has the same motor as any crx (usdm)
the d16z6 is 92-95 (civic ex or del sol si....sohc vtec).... d16y8 is 96-up (civic ex or del sol si....sohc vtec)
the d15s are the same in coresponding years aswell

all del sol body parts are the same with the exception of the front bumper 96-up not having aux lights
the paint probably had to be blended becasue it was most likely faded

what suspension work do you have done?
not a whole lot, what i meant is that it handles much better than stock.
but, some coilovers and strut and sway bars on the front and back. could be much better i know, need the actual struts, and a camber kit now too. or my tire tread goes down the drain. :(

your car will handle better w/o a camber kit....just eats tires faster

i dont use a camber kit...most guys on here dont
