Skunk2 springs?

Has anyone ever ran these on a focus or SVT?

Supposed to lower the car 1 1/2 inches I believe.....I assume that means I can't run stock struts & shocks??

And I would need camber plates also right??

I had some and loved them! Excellent springs. They are about an inch and a half drop, little rough ride, but I never minded it. I bought them to replace my old steeda springs and they just made the car feel like it handled better. You could run stock shocks and struts, but it wouldn't handle as good as they could with an upgrade. I assume you are using svt shocks and struts, so you might be ok for a while without them blowing out, but I would look into upgrade options. I used kyb agx. My camber was off, but still within spec. I had my non svt aligned to svt specs and camber was still in the green... not perfect, but within the green marks

Is the 1.5" drop quoted for the regular Focus or specifically for the SVT? The SVT already comes 0.75" lower than a ZX3, so it would only be a total drop of 0.75" if they are quoting ZX3 drop height.

That's the way my FRPP springs (M-5560-ZXM, $140 from Village Ford) were spec'd, and the resultant drop I got agrees with this. I am using new (but stock) SVT dampers, no need for camber plates either.
