Yes you can use the SVT springs on your stock struts but its not advisable. The SVT springs are different in two ways. They are shorter, and stiffer. Your stock dampers are not made to operate at that low of spring or with that stiff of spring and will wear out quite quickly especially if they have not been replaced since the car was new. Save up for a complete kit with dampers that match the springs and you won't be disappointed. You also won't end up taking it all apart again once your stockers wear out.

save up for the complete kit, if you put the springs on now, they will wear the struts out very very fast. save up the svt struts will run you around another $150-$200 they will last longer you will be happier, and you only have to do the job once! [thumb]

many of the sponser sites might have them for that price.

seriously 150$ for just SVT springs is not that good, if you wanted to drive up to vancouver BC, i could sell you my used SVT spring AND struts for that price. they're just sitting in my garage.
