987.2 shocks and bushings.

Around when should one look to replacing these wear parts? My car has about 50k miles and is a 2009.

Don't want to go over full coil overs and do not want to lower the car, I'm considering the blistein mono tubes. Not sure which variant I should go for, thanks.

Car is a boxster S. Plan to do autox every other month and three track days a year.

Probably still good for a while. Two factory options:

1. Porsche 987 Sport suspension
2. Cayman R/Boxster Spider suspension

I thought there was no M030 equivalent 987 sports suspension.

Sorry, X73 Sport suspension fits the 981 series.

Both will be firmer and more precise than stock, about the same $. Cay R will lower the car just a bit and I would choose that for my driving style. Otherwise just replace with stock struts for a stock ride that is Porsche tuned.
