Leaky Shocks - Bilstein exact replacement?

Recommended Posts

2009 C2S 91K miles  PASM

 

Hello,

 

My alignment shop noted to me today all four shocks are leaking.  Great.   The Porsche labeled shocks are pretty expensive..... I noticed the Bilstein models are cheaper but are they "the actual" shock?  I am not interested in improving or changing my suspension, but if there is the same " OEM" out there, I don't mind saving some money.

 

Porsche Part Numbers:  Front: 997-343-045-22 and  Rear997-333-053-30

 

Possible Bilstein Part Numbers: Front: 35-118251 OE HD and 22-147530 OE       Rear: 26-118260 OE HD and 26-147543 OE

 

Odd, Bilstein has two shocks it denotes as OE for the 2009 C2S, one is denoted HD and other not.  Hmmmm... any insights?

 

Advice?

 

Peace

Never mind... I just ordered four Porsche shocks.  The ones that came with the car are Bilsteins if anyone wants to know.  Their logo is stamped on the upper part of the tube.
