Svt sub frames ?

Is it worth it to swap over the sub frames to a standard zx3?

I don't think there's a difference. The only thing different on the SVT is the shocks, springs, F&R swaybars, and "reinforced" rear control arms.

Like said above svt has the reinforced control arms to mount a sway bar but you can simply just swap the arms.

The SVT subframe is better, has a few options not on yours. But it isn't available anymore anyway, and you have other options to get the adjustability you want.
