my 98 spec had the rear trailing arm changed at some stage,just wondering is there differences in the models of integras ? I don't seem to have as much of a gap between the rta and the wheel inner lip as I do the otherside,the wheel bearing was changed on that side and I'm thinking that could be possibly wrong

I don't believe there is any difference in fitment of RTA's between 94-01 DC2. However the later cars had some extra bracing around the RTA bush area.

Have you had an alignment done on the car? This should easily point to any discrepancies. The position of the RTA bush in the arm could maybe affect this if these have been changed, these are pressed in. Wheel bearing is interesting, only way to check might be to remove rear discs and do some measurements between face of hub and RTA.

They do look the same,I'm thinking it is the bearing/hub that could be wrong.
I have done alignment twice and the rear toe is slightly off but within oe spec. I might just pull the discs off and see if there is a difference .

Ps had a look at your DC2 build
