Yeah after some research it looks like I can use truck bags on the rear. Also I have a heard that there issue strut that is like hydraulics but uses are. Just dropped the van off for paint. Going with the flat black primer till I get the h22 in. I still have to inspect the motor and do some adjustments to it and then install it. I will post pics tonight of the van, wheels and motor. Then after Christmas I will post pics of it primed.

So I think I am going to just lower the van on springs. Because I need an alignment and I will do airbags later if I think I need them.

any suggestions?

is that h22 a jdm or a h22a4 askin befor you get some issues
your van is obd II so it has a crank and tdc on the crankshaft and not inthe distributor .. you will need a h22a4 motor for just drop in ...
if not h22a4 or it is jdm you will need to swap oilpumps.....
if you need help or more info pm me

What is the difference or benefit in getting the H22A4 or the H23 motors, one over the other?

Don't both drop in with 98 mounts? Both obdii engines? Which is easier? Cheaper?

h23 better for low end ... both drop in but will need the 96- prelude drivers side mount cut to fit our van ...
only issue is the obdII vertion is the two sensors on the crankshaft ... if he useing a obdI motor he will not have the two sensors his van needs to run due to being a 96(obdII).. he could rewire the obdI distributor seen in the pic to work with his van but then would need jumper to use the obdI p13 ecu to run.... if he used the stock ecu obdII ecu and rewired the obdI distributor it would run for about 1 month or just till the ignighter burnd out in the distributor or the ecu would burn ...

cheaper is the h23 from a 96 if you can find one for obdII 96-98 odyssey.
95 obdI odyssey any motor is cheaper

yea the rewire is not hard at all..

the drivers side motor mount.. you can use the stock one but only one bolt will line up... or get mount from 92-96 prelude and trim off 1/2 inch on the mount it self where the bolt goes threw for the body braket. (same process as putting a h22 into a 94-97 accord

the auto p28 not sure on outcome you will get... seen some good outcomes with the p72 ls auto ecu chiped to vtec and tuned on the van.. but if you are going to go obdI with jumper and auto.
you will need the obdIIa to obdI jumper for auto and also need the tcu for the accord or prelude/95 odyssey , to be used with witch ever obdI ecu you chose...

I would never recommend cutting springs. It doesn't ride bad. I am going with tea green off the element or crv.

Cut rear feels pretty bouncy, looks stupid when you hit a large ramp type bumps on the freeway.

I am running H&R Race springs up front and in the rear I use cut springs. I bought the Firestone rear air bags to stiffen up the rear with about 25psi. Fixed the bouncy problem and the rear can haul more weight without sagging.

If you are going to run cut springs at least use the bags. They correct the wack spring rates of cutting them.
