current ROW M030 spring part number

Does anyone know the current ROW M030 part number?
Many of the old part numbers are no longer available. It seems like they are undated with new numbers.
I'm looking for front spring set. The part number for ROW M030 FRONT spring set I'm getting is 996 343 531 15 504. Odd that it's a 996 number.... Can anyone confirm?
Thanks.

Last December I bought the ROW M030 kit from Suncoast for a 2003 Boxster S. I think I wrote down all the part numbers on a slip of paper because I was curious to see what the cost of the individual parts added up to vs the cost of the kit. I can look tonight if you haven't found it earlier. The Porsche parts websites that I've used usually provide you with the updated part number if you search for the item by the part number you have and it's been superseded.

Here's a photo of all the labels for my ROW M030 I bought from Sunset in 2013:

And here's a photo of the springs with color codes. I had to buy 6 speed rears separately, as only the Tiptronic kit was available complete by then. Tip springs not shown.

Thanks for the picture.
Dealer cannot confirm as my VIN as it is US spec nonsport.
They want a ROW/euro spec sport susp VIN which I don't have.
It looks like recently the part numbers have changed. I can pull up US M030 but can't access any ROW M030 part numbers.

986-343-531-11 504 is the newer updated ROW M030 front spring set part number.
Dealer tells me none in stock and no plans to make more. Dealer states no superseded part number either.
elephant racing states 996 343 531 15 504 is new part number but dealer can't confirm

Go to
Porsche Genuine Parts - Porsche Great Britain

and then select Boxster (986)

that will give you the ROW PET. You can find the ROW part numbers in that PET

That would surprise me as 986 and 996 have different springs, so a 996 part number for a spring probably is not for a 986
Also when the supersede a part number, generally they change the last 2 or 3 numbers, not ones before
