Within year range, yes. 92-95 suspension is all the same across body styles, 96-00 suspension is all the same across body styles.

Default my first hatch questions....axles

I recently got rear ended amd totalled my sedan, so I pulled the motor and am about to buy a hatch shell, im wondering what all is compatable, specifically if I can use the same axles from the sedan to the hatch for the d15b vtec, and what else is swapable I know the rear spring rates foe suspension are different but how big of a difference will that make

They're gonna complain that you made a new thread.

all D series 1992-2000 axles are the same. The spring rate shouldn't be significant, if its lower it'l act like worn out suspension. Are your springs and shocks even original? You should inspect parts on both cars and decide which appear to be in better condition. Upper control arm's ball joints, stuff like that.

be careful to find one that started its life as a manual car. If you swap a manual trans into an auto hatch shell the axles will keep breaking until you get an automatic to manual engine mount or modify the chassis. It will be easy to check if you put the vin# into majestic honda's website. It will tell you if the car is meant to be automatic or manual.
