Default 1989 acura integra suspension?

is there any way of swapping out my front suspension with shock and spring set instead of just the shocks. Or is there any other car that i can swap in?

It's better not to make any modifications. Funny you ask this question. I used to have a car just like that in red. It bottomed out at ever pot hole or hill. I was just thinking about that car yesterday when driving home. It's actually not that great of a car. Ours had terrible rust holes in it and when it rained there was puddles of water in the trunk.

Talking Re: 1989 acura integra suspension?

If that is the Da series body ( Da-6 coupe, Da-7 sedan), in New Zealand after market parts such as newspeed springs, Tein shocks are direct bolt replacement for standard.
As for lowering I personally think it would make for a car that bottoms out to easily. Stiffer springs with adjustable shocks improve things. Also look into bracing the front and rear to stiffen the body in relation suspension. Larger sway bars can also help as well. Then you need to set-up all that for your preferred style of ride and handling .
Good luck.
BTW find someone local to help so that you don't get overwhelmed with learning starting this project and then maybe loosing interest.
Cheers from New Zealand
