here is link with some pictures, lowering springs are not available new anymore unless you find someone selling some Intrax or Eibachs, etc Some people have cut Moog cargo springs to lower their cars

These are 17x8 with a +45 offset. Normally this would be a perfect combo for this car but I decided to go with General 225/50/ZR17s and Generals have a wider side wall than other tires. I was having rubbing issues on my SHOSource coilovers so I ended up having to use a 5mm spacer on all four wheels. If I didn't have the SHOSource coilovers, or had gone with a different brand tire I wouldn't have needed the spacers. With normal struts or Konis there wouldn't have been a rubbing issue. The lock ring on the coilovers is directly next to the sidewall.

It's a CincySHO cowl hood. They have been out of business for a long long time so your only option in getting one is finding a used one from another SHOwner. You are only minutes away from SHOSource so you might see if they have one to sell. Otherwise, I've got another one that I'd sell but shipping would be more than the hood is worth.

There was a car in Seattle craigslist about a month ago that had one and carbon fiber trunk, don't see the ad anymore so maybe it expired or sold
