$100 is too much. Depends on if you can afford new aftermarkets.

Count plug wires. If it says 3.8 on the intake, it's a 6. If the intake plenum says 4.6, it's an 8. It won't actually say it, but should be printed.

Do searches here for the terms "Vogtland" or "eibach". Leave off the quotes.

Sport Springs are off a V8, and they are the same as SC springs. I've got them on my car, and I think they would work exceptionally well on a lighter 3.8 NA if you trim them down to get rid of the 4x4 look you'll have.

As far as springs out of a junkyard, $100 is too much. I got a set of SC springs for $80. If you need cheap, but want new, check out www.suspensionmax.com. You can get a new set of springs with a 1.5" drop for $129.
