I have searched but found no answers. I am sure many SVTF owners have had this problem, please advise.

Yeah, i'm having the same problem. With stock struts and springs, i hit a bump and start praying that my hock towers dont come off!
With FRPP springs, its even worse. Its a new set of shocks/struts from Tousley ford. But i did notice my sway bar on passenger side hitting the body. I have a 1/4" dent in the unibody, by the spot weld.

I did measure few sway bar links and there are some longer and shorter. I'm gonna try longer to bring the bar lower, but if that wont help, then i'll post it on craigslist and find myself a different car because its just impossible to drie this thing and nobody has a solution either...
