SVT header clearance with modded suspension, what is it?

hey can you guys with modded suspension tell me whats the clearance of the SVT header from the ground with sportlines, pro kit, and stock SVT?, im thinking about a drop but i think my car is lower than a normal svt, so maybe it had the springs cut, who knows..

thanks!

so do you think i can just go with sportlines?, can you tell me the distance between ground and the header?, there are some bumps locally that are so badly deformed ( does that word exist? lol), the bumps have this shape ___---__ , the header would hit the center mark (-), they dont do what they should which is slow down drivers, the 4x4s around here just pass over them without braking, i do sometimes too, but what would be of my header if i were lower?.. thats why i ask the height so i can do my math and see where can i go and were i cant go lol

ive had a 2" drop for a long time now and ive never hit the header (on bumps or during normal driving)....SOME driveways you might have to be real easy and go up at an angle but other than that...clearance shouldent be a problem

Definitely need to watch the driveway's. I had the Eibach pro kit and I bottomed out the svt header on a steep driveway. I'm running the svt suspension now.

I never hit, even on speedbumps and what not. My wife has the Fofo at work today. I can measure it for you this weekend.
