This was my last SS. 1999-01 RS struts with unknown JDM gc8 lowering springs. Tires are 205/40/r16 iirc

To get the kind of drop you're thinking of, and to have evenness front to rear, you're gonna want coilovers.

Well the picture certainly is not right, but if it says 02-07 fitment, I'm sure it's probably the right setup. I might even be willing to give these a try.. Might be a better bang for your buck over Raceland, which tend to blow out pretty easily.
