However, my '04 SVT, with stock suspension, is one level above the ST. Good luck.
Soo your basically telling him to go with I'm driving a 2003 svt right now and had a stock 2000 zx3........ Overall I can corner better then I ever have in any car I owned...... That's including a 2008 civic........ But the only thing bad about my svt is the header rubs the ground in heavy dips and tires sometimes rub fenders........ so really I don't know if I have stock svt suspension or if it has been modified......
