WTB S197 Suspension, Manual swap parts,

Hey there,
I am a long time lurker of this forum so figured I'd see if any of yall had some suspension stuff around. I've had my 2005 GT for about a year now (bone stock) and have been collecting parts to start building it into a weekend track car (maybe iron spec?) this winter.

Im looking for:
Lowering springs/coilover
Adjustable panhard
Nice LCAs
Manual swap parts (only have the trans)
(Im not really sure what I need, hasn't really been my priority and still isn't, I'll do more research if someone has a parts car or something)
-race car stuff (kirkey seat, rails,

I have some 6-pot Brembos I'd be willing to trade. I'll even rebuild them and put on a fresh coat of caliper paint for the right deal.

I plan on doing a full build thread so I'll be sure to post on here too. I feel like everyone has moved on to s550 but I will always be a 3v s197 nerd. It came out when I was a senior in high school and was my dream car lol

Anyways hit me up if you have stuff. I'm not rich so don't come at me with crazy prices. I have no problem patiently stalking craigslist/facebook/ebay waiting for stuff to come up. Also if you find this thread 5 years from now I'm probably still looking for parts so hit me up.

PS I bought an Automatic because its getting rather hard to find a clean low mile s197 with ANY transmission. Got my 05 GT Auto with 57k for $9k. Not bad and I'm not scared to do the swap.
I have a Maximum Motorsports adjustable panhard bar, coming off the car this weekend when I install my Watts-link. Has maybe 1k miles on it, but it is surprisingly light weight!

Let me know if your interested.
