    Autocross advice?

    So I'm trying to get my car better set up for autocross this summer.

    My whole setup as of now is e36 M3 front wheel hubs, steering knuckles, brakes, control arms, and M Coupe strut towers, dampers, and springs. Wheels are slightly offset towards the rear. Rear is complete Z3 1.9l trailing arm assembly including brakes, and Eibach Pro Kit/Bilstein Sports. Ireland Engineering 22mm/19mm sway kit is on the way. I believe I have 10/15mm spacers (not sure which, didn't measure) with E36 M3 DSII wheels.

    If any of you have advice on front strut/damper/spring combos, please let me know. I'm not really sure how to approach upgrading it, I can't figure out what the hell my M Coupe front spring rates are. Is it true that I can use any 96+ e36 M3 strut/damper/spring setup? What are the issues with caster/wheel fitment that I've heard and how are they remedied?

    I'm currently researching rear options as well, my Eibach Pro Kits are WAY too soft. I think I might look into a set of Ireland Engineering rear adjustable spring perches and 2 1/4" custom springs.

    Pic for reference of the squat I get when really on it:
