Yes they will, but some of the 2nd Gen suspension parts should actually be used when modding up a suspension, the 3rd gen Escort Sedans use a 13mm rear sway bar, where aways the 2nd gen Escort GT's use a 21mm rear sway bar, and the 2nd gen wagon I believe have a 19mm rear sway bar, but other than that yep, they all are interchangable...

go to www.zxtuner.com for your suspension parts, I went through him and rob over there justs completely kicks ass (a good thing)

If ya are going to go with anything use the Zx2 S/R suspension parts... they kick ass!

i know suspension parts are interchangeable between the 3rd and 2nd gen are the same. butis the layout bewteen gen's exactly the same? A guy i know who knows much more than me has a ZX2 while i have a 2nd gen LX, and I wanna lower my car (i think he does too)... i just wanna know if he does it on his car and it works out fine, if it'll be the exact same (process and results) on mine. thanks. PS. Once you lower it (coilovers or springs) you have to take it in for alignment, right?

yes, all the parts you mentioned interchange. Choosing the correct spec parts for your application is all you need to worry about.

results will vary, as the body is different and the ZX2 is heavier than your 2nd gen. So with the same springs, yours will ride just a little stiffer.
