There are a few who have ponied up for the PSS9's. From what I have read over the years, no complaints only compliments. I can't remember any names off hand, but if I do I will post them up for you.

Pete (93SHO03SVT) has PSS9s on his car. I've got KW Variant 2's, and they both feel the same. Can't really go wrong with either kit.

I live in the NYC area. Can the car be set at regular height and then dropped for track or is it lower than the .75 that an SVT starts out at?

Thanks
Scooter

Unless a coil over shock has a threaded lower mount, so that height can be adjusted without compressing the spring, they end up being far better for lowering than they do for raising or maintaining stock ride height. When using spring compression to raise the car you loose suspension travel and compromise ride quality at the same time.
