ROW M030 Question

I have searched the heck out of this forum and Googled in an attempt to get some guidance. And, I am still a tad confused.

In the past I had a 993 Cab and a 993 Turbo. On both of those cars I switched out the suspension to M030 ROW using Bilstein HD struts.

Now I am looking at changing the suspension on my Boxster S to ROW M030. My thought was to use Bilstein HDs again. However, looking at the ROW M030 packages that Suncoast and Sunset Porsche are selling it makes much more financial sense to use Porsche struts that are included in the package.

When I had the 993s they came new with Monroe shocks which were of a sub par quality. Are the struts that are sold in the kits for the Boxster decent?

I have looked into the Bilstein PSS9 set up and the ROW M030 fits my needs better.

TIA

The M030 struts are made by Bilstein & I believe identical to the Bilstein HD except the M030 are black & the HD are yellow & have a lifetime warrantee.

You're welcome. By the way, I'm glad I reused my original max height springs. Entire suspension is new standard suspension except M030 struts, & the ride is overly stiff over typical 405 fwy bumps.
