Well those shocks are designed for the SVT/FRPP springs and spring rates. Go with a lower/stiffer spring and they will not last as long and/or possibly not perform as well. If those are the same shocks/struts that get paired to FRPP's springs that lower the car 1.5", then that is what spring i would be checking out. If you cant find those then, look to a 1.5" drop from a spring thats not super stiff.
