Eibach is a better ride IMO as long as you get at least the springs, dampers. You can get the pro system plus that comes with the sways also. If you got that, for sure that will WAY out perform the SVT setup.

Also if your looking for a 'looks' also mod, get the Eibach Prokit. The SVT's 1/2" drop isn't very noticeable, and nowhere near the 'look' of a Prokit drop.

My Eibach prosprings are still for sale. The ride is great and the handling is very good. I only upgraded to the Koni kit because I take it to the track a lot.

Go with the Eibach. I have it on my car and absolutely love it! If you want to upgrade the rear sway bar, take a look at the Progress 22mm one, I have it on my car with the Pro-System and my car handles great! Good enough to scare my gf . Anyway, just my $0.02, that's all.

Real world prices are more like 489.00 for the Eibach and 250.00 for the SVT. Taking that into consideration the SVT kit is a outstanding deal. The Focus SVT has received kudos for handling from just about every major publication in the world. And you can add to to a regular Focus for 250 bucks....had that kit been available when we got the Eibach system, it would be on our car right now. And thats from someone who is happy with the Eibachs!
