if you want to keep the great handling of the svt i would recommend the h&r cup kit which will drop you another 1.5"-1.75" (svt is already 1" lower than the zx3). you could also go with coilovers if you have the money to.

if handling is not something that you are interested in than you may just want to put your svt on airbags. although do know that will have lost what in my opinion is the best part of the focus.

Not to mention it will probably rub like hell. But whatever tickles your pickle.

H&R cup kit for sure. Get a nice drop and also great handling and wont sacrifice ride quality much at all.

while the eibach is a good kit it doesnt drop as far as the cup kit and the h&r cup kit will allow MUCH better handling of the car through the all important corners. mmmm, corners.

The eibach kit comes with anti roll bars front and rear the cup kit does not ,but the cup kit does bring you lower.

the full kit does, but that kit is usually about 700 and the h&r can be had for about 575-625 depending on where you get it from and how hard you look for a good deal. add a h&r 24mm rear sway bay (150) to that and you have a kit that will allow you to handle much better than the eibach and it will be reasonably close in price. also remember that the front sway bar is very difficult to replace so for many people that part of the eibach never makes it on the car.
