Default Early 90's DA front LCA on 91 Hatch

The early 90's Integra DA front LCA's are just about 3/8in longer than the 91 Civic front LCA. This extra length is from the shock mount to the ball joint end. Here is my question. If I use these LCA's, will this cause any problems with the axles? Like pulling the axle out of the trans or pulling the CV joints apart due to the increased distance between the back of the hub and the transaxle?

I want to use these LCA's because they are more robust than the Civic LCA's and the extra length between the shock mount and the ball joint will let us raise the car higher before we get into camber issues.

There should be enough movement in the inner joint of the CV to accommodate that extra track width, but you can test this if you install everything except the coilover assembly and move the suspension through its range of motion with the steering from lock to lock and check.

It can certainly be done with later cars.

I'm intrigued: what's your reason for raising the car?

I would definitely check the axles without the boots on at full droop and full lock if I could.
