Shocks and Springs replacements

Hi All,
I'm new to this forum and would like your input in relation to replacement parts.
I'm looking to replace the shocks and springs on my completely standard 2001 986 Boxster.
Can anyone please recommend me an online store where I can buy a good value Bilstein shocks?
Can anyone please recommend me a good brand for springs that is suitable for this model?

I'm not looking into lowering or changing the ride setting of the car in any way. the shocks and springs needs changing as it's starting to go quite soft.

your input is greatly appreciated.

Thank you,

Have you done the push test...you push down on one at a time and see how the spring back from the shock does. Not knowing how many miles and the condition of the roads, but shocks can last up to 150K miles. If you are looking for OEM replacement call SunCoast in Sarasota, FL. They have really good prices for Porsche parts. You can also check with Pelican and see what they carry for replacements.
