I own a 2006 Baja, after a transmission swap at 288000 miles I'm looking to make it a little more sporty you know? Any ideas as to what Other models I should use to get parts that would be compatible. The Baja isn't exactly the easiest car to find performance parts for in my experience.

#1 criteria: What's your budget?
#2: what's your intended use/why are you lowering it?
#3: doing it yourself or paying others?

All of this feeds into #4: how legit do you want it to be (IE cut springs vs mix n match stock parts vs coilovers)

03 baja springs/struts are good for about 1". ouback/legacy ought to be good for another inch ish if I recall. If you have the money and your intended use justifies it, coilovers are a nice pre-packaged deal but can have other issues like road noise transmission and accelerated wear of other already somewhat worn parts like bushings, especially if you don't re-index the bushings.
