stock svt springs

Will a svt stock springs fit on my sedan??? Also, how much is it going to drop my height? Do I need a camber kit.. or regular alignments for it.. I know that if you drop your car a certain height it's better to get a camber kit or just have lifetime alignments done to your car. Does the svt springs have a dramatic difference then the ones that I have on my sedan??..

Oh.. and the stock struts/shocks of the svt.. fit on the sedan?? is there a dramatic difference then the ones that I have on my sedan??..

It will all fit - it dropped my ZX5 1" in the front and 1/2" in the rear. No camber kit needed.

A lifetime alignment won't do anything unless there are some adjustments that can be made. The chamber kits allow for those adjustments. As mentioned, the SVT springs won't drop you enough to justify the chamber kits. Rear chamber is not adjustable on a Focus but the SVT drop isn't enough to throw the rear chamber out of spec.

that 1 inch in the front and .5 inch in the back.. is that after the car settles? or is that the spring height difference and the actually drop a little bit more? i know whenever dropping cars in the past it would settle an additional .5 or so

Don't count on settling. If its properly installed and bolts torqued after its been on the ground any settling should be insignificant.

My 04 stock svt seemed like it settled after I drove it and corner it after a month or owning it. Is it different on my svt due to it all being stock then all brocken in together. I am not talking about a lot just enough to notice it when I wash tires and could tell there was less wheel gap.
Is this true or just something I did not notice when I bought the car?

I just finished putting SVT springs on my ZX3 tonight. It definately lowers it some from stock. Looks good. It "settled" on the way home. It didn't seem like it was lowered at all after I put them all on, but after sitting for a minute, by the time I drove home it had all sunk in and I could see a difference.

I'd post pics but I'm waiting for daylight.
