The Sport Suspension came on the GT models. It is a little bit lower and a little bit stiffer. But if you ask me the difference is from going from 16" wheels to 17's

Sport Suspension would not only be you lowering the springs but also upgrading the struts and the camber depending on your drop. That is what I believe it is.

Lowering springs just lower the vehicle, improving handling yes but sacrificing your ride hide and bottom out distance compared to stock. Take your pick.

If you really want ride nice, fit your PT to some Koni adjustable gas struts too.

Do you ride with others? Then you may not want to lower your PT.
