I want to say yes .. but more likely probably. I do bet they reused the bolt spacing, so it is just a matter of how much caster is built in, and how wide the plates are for fitment in the upper strut tower. Worst case, a little attack of the grinder that no one will ever see. There are guys using EVO1-3 stuff ... hopefully they will chime in.

hope this helps corey.
these are fortune auto coils for an evo 111.
previous owner said you would have to lightly elongate the holes in the fender
for the mounting studs. i cant confirm cuz no time to go out and play with car.
just take this info and compare to your csm.
no camber seems to be the biggest bummer.


5-3/4 center to center for mounting studs
Image
just shows the strut shaft is centered between mounting studs so no castor built in
Image
approx size needed to fit in the center hole of the fender opening (should be fine there)
Image
with in the other direction for fitment underneath fender (should be fine there too)

If the early EVOs share the 4g mirage chassis, then the studs should be around 10mm closer together than the 3g CSM plates. I know from modding the 4g strut brace to fit my 3g Colt.

yup seems about right. the owner of the evo3 coilovers from the pics i posted above said he had to elongate the holes a bit in the csm fender mount area. the measurements are there to if anyone wants to compare to their csm.

I'll take a bet that the EVO3 top plates shown, could be interchangeable with the KSport top plates I got with my C50 platform coilovers. All it would take is a measurement of the distance between the camber adjust bolts from side to side along the same plane. Then you know if it will bolt up to KSport top cups. For those not wanting to cut their chassis.
