SVT Style Suspension height?

I have the SVT Style Suspension and from the looks of other peoples cars this kit is nowhere near the actual svt ride height. Seems like it is over an inch higher still.

The SVT suspension only drops a non-SVT 1/2". SVT's look a little lower due to some of the body/ground effects on that car. Are you possibly confusing the SVT kit with the FRPP kit which drops about 1.5"?

I have this kit http://www.steedafocus.com/parts/for...nsion-kit.html
To get to SVT height I think I need 1.5" lower to be near the SVT fender gap, I have the front lip so I'm going by fender gap. Is it possible to just get the SVT springs?
