I'm looking at a lowered SVTF (1 inch in the front 1.5 in the back) and was wondering what is the best place to get a cheap SVT stock suspension kit, looked at Steeda and FRP but what are my other options? Also are there any decent "cheap" [rofl] coilover setups that will give me some clearance for dirt roads?

I have a set of SVT Springs with 40k mile on them. I also have the front struts as well. That should "lift" you up a little bit.

Let me know if your interested.

Yea I'll have to get the car first! I definitely know I wont keep it lowered for long, friends cooper S sits about the same height and he cracked his splitter going into a parking lot at school, and I would occasionally venture out onto the groomed logging roads..

Thats a dirty word on this forum.

hahahaha its good to be different! I'm definitely not gonna throw all terrains on it and go muddin! But having a car that I have to unload all my gear, drain the tank and kick the illegals out of the spare tire hole just to go over a speed bump is gonna be a PITA. It certainly got your attention didn't it? [ohcrap]

Yea I did a 50 mile canoe trip with the boy scouts in high school around there, we ended at the dam at the end of moosehead lake! It's beautiful up there! i totally wish i could drive on that road for 200 miles man... I know it might be controversial to say but... dirt motorsports > pavement motorsports [neener]

Even at that ride height you will have 6-8 inches of ground clearance. You will be fine driving on rough roads. Raising it to stock is silly.

As cool as that looks, I think its photoshopped lol (No Reflections of the people in the door)

You should be able to find a stock SVT setup somewhere for a good price on here, used, but with low miles, so it should suit your needs.

Heres how it sits now, drove it in and out of the Ford dealer which is a huge grade transfer to the street at an insane angle and no bottoming out!
