SUV needs lowered! Help!!!

OK, I am sick of the SUV stance. I have installed 17X7.5 with 215/45/17. Have studied possibly going with SVT kit for a 1" drop. Or Eibach ProKit. Even just going with springs. I am leaning towards the SVT kit seeing as I live and work in industrial Houston. I will need to contend with RR crossings and potholes. Will the SVT kit help with the appearance? Please help me to decide! What would you do in my position?

Nice wheels! I am thinking about a set just like yours but chrome... for some bling.
For the price I am going to go with the SVT suspension from Ford Racing. At $275.00 for 4 shocks, springs and a sway bar you can't beat it and it won't void your warrenty if installed by the dealer.
Some clear side lights would also look good, and maybe color match your grill surround.
Check out my gallery.
Better yet check out my web site:

Color Matched Grill, Mid-Wing Spoiler, Clear Side Lights, Audiophile Sound System, Stealth CAI, SVT Suspension and EAP wheels, FRPP Strut Tower Brace and STS.

If i were you i would get the Pro-kit. The SVt drop is good for handling, but appearance wise it will leave you beggin for more. I live near Houston, and i have sportlines and i wish my car was a little lower. Potholes and railroad crossings arent that bad at all... i think the trick is gettin the matchin Eibach dampers, they make a big difference in ride comfort. Our car already sits so high, that even with sportlines it jus looks like the stock height of a BMW or sumtin. Anyways since u have bigger wheels, jus get the Pro-kit, and you'll be quite happy.
