Rear Shocks Leaking ..

Well time for 1st repair ..
2003 Boxster S with 50K miles .. and PSM
original shocks and not surprised need to replace ..
Question is 2 fold if you please ..
1) replace with what?
I've spent all afternoon and evening reading threads here (and there) ..
I am leaning towards Koni Special Active (red) over Sport (yellow) ..
again I am 72 and drive with spirit and when this Covid allows will probably autocross (for fun 3-4 times a year) ..
any other recommendations?
2) everything else looks good suspension wise but again all is 17 years old and original .. any recommendations for preemptive replacement?
Thanks in advance ..

I eventually went with a set of these for the rear of my 2001 986S


If you plan to do the work yourself here is a great video on how to install them in an afternoon at home.
