Ok i recently bought someones used svt suspension off of here. Now i drive a 03 sedan that has lowering springs that drops it 1.5". My question is will the svt suspension handle the 1.5 inch drop springs or should i keep the svt springs? And does anyone have a picture of a sedan with the svt suspension so i can see how much of a drop it is. I will be putting on some 17s with 205/45/17 tires on it. Let me know. thanks

Clarify your question please. What do you mean by svt suspension? Is that shocks/struts, swaybars, and springs? Or everything except springs? If you have 1.5" drop now and put full svt suspension w/springs on you will actually be raising your car because stock svt springs only lower the car around .50".

i ran SVT shock/struts with a 2" drop for quit sometime with no problems....they wont last forever but you should be fine for daily driving.

Its shocks/struts, swaybars, and springs. But on my stock susp. i have the 1.5 drop springs. i know its gonna raise it but i dont want it to raise alot i stil kinda want it to be dropped but not enough so when people ride with me its lowers it more. ill see what the results are tomorrow and let yall know

The SVT springs would be best for long strut life. The SVT springs do handle and ride well, but they only have a 1/2-3/4" drop from stock. So it depends on your priorities. If you want a car that looks lowered, then use the springs that you have. If you want a decent ride with good handling and don't care about being lowered so much, then use the SVT springs. The SVT springs won't look like the car has been lowered at all. They look about right, IMHO, not too high like stock springs either. Hope this helps.
