Need Help Identifying Suspension!

I removed my old suspension to replace with PSS9 and H&R sway bars. I am now trying to sell the old, but I can't figure out what it is. My car was not originally equipped with M030, but I don't think this is the original suspension. The dots on the shocks are red, which according to Bentley, is the sport suspension. The big problem comes with the springs. First, I can't remember which shocks came off the front vs. rear, and therefore don't know which springs came off which end. Are the shocks with the mount higher up on the body from the front or rear? The springs have red/yellow dots on one set and blue/white on the other. According to the CB-Racing website, that gives me the following options:
Red/Yellow front- 986.343.531.11 504 RoW030 97-02 'S' coil spring set -
Red/Yellow rear- 986.333.531.12 504 RoW030 97-02 coil sprg set tiptronic

Blue/White front- No option given on the website
Blue/White rear- 986.333.531.05 504 std 00-02 'S' coil sprg set tiptronic


Since my car is an 00 6-speed not originally equipped with the M030 option, I'm sure you understand my confusion. Any insight would be very helpful. I am attaching some images of the suspension also.

They are no longer visible. The stickers wore off long ago it would appear.
