I used these for my front trunk and they worked great:

Check with Woody, user name itsnotanova, he can probably hook you up with most of the rest.

Yes, you need two frunk shocks. As for the other items...

Dash speakers: Does your car have the Bose stereo? If so, and you want to retain theOEM system, you need to look for replacement Bose speakers (eB_y) as they have a very low impedance (2 ohm) and aftermarket speakers may not sound good. I don't know about the sound first hand but can imagine that it might not be quite right.

If you have a stock stereo, consider after market speakers of your choice. There are lots of decent choices in the $30 -$50 range that will provide a very nice upgrade to the stock dash speakers.

Wheel caps are all over the board in price but if you buy used ones, be aware that condition can vairy greatly.

Can't help with the stock but are you looking for a three stock or four?

Hey guys. The dampers worked fantastically. I used a small electronics flat head screw driver and a hammer to very carefully tap out the retaining clip when taking the old ones off. Took about 15 min. Its scary how well the hood pops open now!
