    so will these shocks actually fit a ek because my cuzin gave me some brand new kyb shocks that he was goin to use but he has itr lcas on his eg so it didnt fit ive read around and said it should but ive also read about clearance issues for rear shocks due to ek lcas being thinner???
    does anyone know about this?
    if i get aftermarket lcas will it help mount these shocks a lil better?

    You can either get EG/DC/Aftermarket LCA's or just trim your bushing like quarter of an inch on each side in the back.

    I'm not sure on the exact number but you can just measure them I guess, but you can definitely make it work!

    i think the lcas from a eg/dc are shorter than the ek i think the ek ones are longer

    Err it's opposite, you will need to trim EG/DC lca bushings to fit EK shocks on them, the other way around you'll need to add washers/wider bushing.
