2007 d20 ZX3 compatability

What stock SVT suspensions will fit on my '07 ZX3 from which years? Is the ST's suspension similar to the SVT's?

you cant use any of the 00-05 susp parts, only ones that fit 06-07, try fordracing,eibach,tokcio,steeda,and h&r springs is coming out with some stuff.

I was thinking more of an SVT or "stiffer stock" setup. Are the ST's springs stiffer and do they drop the car any like the SVT's?

i test drove a st and it felt like a stock susp,with rear sway bar, at the time mine did not have a rear swaybar,and when i put one on my car it felt the same as the st,so no not much diff and no diff on lower,your best bang for the money will be the ffrp setup, contact mike at the hilbish ford section and talk to him,his parts are at 10% cheaper than most fords, i believe i heard that the spring and shock kit was around 250.And it is very easy to install a kit like that,i did mine myself in a day,with right tools and some knowledge. Steeda has a step by step instruction for this with pics on there web under install instructions at steedafocus.com hope this helps ALSO WANTED to add that if you want a stiffer setup try a strutbrace and rearsway bar if you dont already have them, it helped mine out a good bit, i say i could take corners about 10mph faster than stock,with 17s and good tires strut brace and rear sway,and with about 20mph over stock with the strut,swaybars,and rearstress bar,eibach pro springs,it could be more if my tires didnt scrub around corners.

From what I understand, if you're ever thinking about upgrading your brakes, you can replace your entire 06-07 suspension/brake system with an <05 setup. I think I'm gonna do SVT brakes and the Eibach Pro System Plus when I do my ride.

I think if you buy any suspension setup from them they give a $100 break on the conversion kit, so you only pay $30.
