|Geezer||Bilstein mono tube shocks have very high internal gas pressures which will "commonly" raise a car at rest (and unloaded) about a half an inch. My Miata looks like a 4x4 when parked but as soon as I sit in it, it comes back down to normal ride height. Bilstein owners accept this trait knowing that the performance improvements far outweigh the temporary visual issues.|

|02fordsvt||Just a little bit of rise (maybe about a 1/4"). I think my old shocks had settle down about that much, however, because the car used to be in a nose dive, but with the Bilstiens in the front (old shocks still in the back), the car sits about flat.|

yup, Steve at Toulsey ford can get you the SVT shocks/struts and new strut bearings (you'll have em apart, so its good to replace these) for ~$200 shipped to your door.
or you can go after market. I personally like my koni yellows on the skunk2 springs. the konis allow for adjustment of dampening (stiffer), which makes the stiffer springs like skunk2/h&r's ride very well.

I got two Bilstien struts for the front: http://www.truckspring.com/products/...22-051219.aspx
It took over three month before they were actually delivered from this place , but I love them so far.

|Geezer||The stock SVT suspension is pretty damn good. The stock SVT shocks and struts can be replaced with Ford Racing parts for less than 175.00 (which is less than half what you'd pay for any other aftermarket performance pieces). The stock stuff is the best bang for the buck available.|

** Moved Thread to the Suspension Area **
There are plenty of great suspension setups for the SVT. Which by the way are the same setups for any of the 01-04 Hatchback Focuses.
The Eibach Sport system is a nice setup within budget if you want to go an inch from the Stock SVT setup.
That's just a start suggestion from me. There are plenty more, and I bet many of the members here will offer their suggestions and experiences for u.
