Spoiler? I think you mean skirt.

Anyway, the skirt on my 99 SE does not interfer with ramps. You shouldn't have any problems.

Get ramps without ridges on the sides.

That'* what I do. That'* the only way to get my 00 up on them. I plan on building up a couple of them and then attach them to the front of the reamps, eventually.

2X4s and some support in the middle of the 2X4s span will work...2X6 works even better.

My 92 SE will hit my ramps so I stack a couple of short pieces of 2x6 in front of the ramp as an extension. Just that couple of inches makes the difference.
