need some help/opinions, going lower

Well ive been seriously considering going lower with my focus i have the pro kit currently and it is very nice, but ive been thinking about getting the sportlines. the only real thing im concerned about is my focus is my daily driver highway miles daily, and ive never acutally driven a real lowered car im use to my dodge ram with the 3 inch lift and 33 inch tires. i love the look of lower but driveable cars. so i want to know people with the sportlines or something else that is lower than the pro kit, how is your guys daily driving with them? is it a pain in the ass or just something you get use too?

I don't want to thread jack, so could you PM me what issues you've had? I just bought an ST and just want to know what I should be looking out for.

sport lines wont lower you too much to the point you will have to worry about it. I have sport lines on my DD and they aren't bad on the highway. At times they suck when driving around on the broken city streets but it is bearable. There is no way I would use the standard springs ever again
