As far as my research has taken me, yes the ride height would be similar (especially if both are wearing similar to OEM wheel/tire combo). If I'm not mistaken the ride height between a 16" and 17" rims are negligible because of the aspect ratio of the tires involved...

The SVT suspension is exactly the same suspension found on the 2002-04 SVT Focus, when sold by dealerships.

We're lucky that they're still being sold and to be honest, the price point is very hard to resist, on top of which - the reviews for a focus with the SVT kit are through the roof.

Now if only we could get an affordable brake package that would rival the SVTF.
