Default Rear Shock/Strut for 92-95 Civic (will 96-00 work?)

Hi guys... I have a set of rear Tokico 5-way Adjustable shocks for a 96-00 Civic ... I'm wondering if these will fit the 92-95 without any problems... I noticed the 96-00 have different part #s from the 92-95 Civics...

By the way what in the world is the difference between shock and strut?

i have EK rear shocks on my EG. i had to trim/grind my lower shock bushing on my LCA b/c the "fork" on the EK shock is narrower than the EG shock. many shocks manufacturers sell the same shock for EGs and EKs, and they just include washers for use with EKs.

it'll fit, you have to trim the EG/DC2 lower control arm. prolly about 1/2 inch on each side
