my ride height.

i am new to the focus game (obviously) and i wanted to know how much of a drop are the stock svt springs compared to... say a zx3 set up. i want to go lower than stock ride height but i dont know if i should get aftermarket sprinds with a drop of 1.7 or 2.2 to get my car a little bit lower.

^^This

Had the H&R sport springs on my focus with KYB AGX shocks, rode great, cornered hard, and looked great.

They arent super-low, but they are a great option to get a good look and extra handling.
