Default suspension question!!

well, I have a question concerning the rear suspension of my 1993 Civic ferio...I have a pair of Koni shocks laying around here...the front ones fit my car, but the rear ones are from the older civic, who don't have that "fork" on the lower end, they have this "eye" or however it's called...so, these shocks are nearly brand new, so I'd like to use them in my car...now my question is, can I get just the lower "arm" of an older civic, and put it into my car, and then install the shocks?or are these "arms" different??

I hope someone can help me out...

I also know, that the Integra has the same kind of suspension on the rear...so, anyone knows if these "arms" fit?!?!

Thanks a lot guys!!

No, you cannot use the older civic control arms as the suspension geometry will be wrong.

Unforntunalty, the suggestion from me is to sell those struts and get the correct ones.
