The SVT is more like .5" lower than other Focus models.... not 1.5". The SVT shocks are successfully used with 1.5" drop Ford Racing springs. My best guess is that the SVT shocks (while good) would be taxed by a further drop and/or spring rate increase (spring rates normally increase the lower you go).
