Drops the car 1.5" from the SVT height?

You only have a few options:

Best overall option: Coilovers - You will be able to adjust the height, and the car will handle like it never has before.

Best Mix/Match: H&R Race springs/Koni Yellow Shocks - These will be lower than the SVT but you're not going to get the slammed look. Performance wise, next to coilovers this is by far the best set up for great handling.

Best All in One: H&R Cup Kit - It will be slightly soft for aggressive driving but it's definitely your best spring/strut combo out of the box. Comfortable ride for how low it is, lowest spring/strut combo out there.

Other options: There are other options that are out there that will get you low or that will be cheaper but they are either not durable (like the Eibach Sport Kit) or are hard to find (Intrax).
