go with the svt suspension kit its not a ton of drop but for $250 you get new springs and shocks struts and a new rear sway bar it will make the focus handle much better compared to just doing springs

i did the SVT setup for $250. def improvement over stock! Doing springs alone will be mostly for apperance, you have to mate them to a good shock/strut to get the full benefit, along with the rear sway bar. the SVT kit gives you all of that, but only a 1/2" drop or so...

Ok I found these springs (the performance sports springs 1)Eibach-Performance-Sport-Springs Do you think 1.5" is too much? I want it as low as turbofocus@1.4bar's focus with the kw springs. I also look at the steeda performance springs like you saidSteeda-Performance-Sport-Springs Will those fit on my 2006 zx4?
