How does old OEM perf suspension lower ride height?

Am considering the "old" OEM performance suspension. From other posts, I understand the ride height will drop ~ 0.5" relative to sport suspension. Is this true? Or am I confusing the new kit?

Also, I thought springs defined the ride height. Since the old perf kit only includes struts/shocks, how is this drop acheived?

the new one with yellow performance springs is supposed to drop a half inch over sport.

Ok, so is it from how the struts are mounted differently? Just trying to visualize since I would be keeping my sport springs.

"This kit includes front and rear struts, shocks, spring pads, bump stops, protection tubes, stabilizer bushings, and misc. mounting hardware"

Perhaps it's in the spring pads?
