I was changing my oil/filter and discovered that one of my rear struts was leaking fluid.


Question:  Should I go OEM or 'OEM' replacement.

The oem p/n is 997 333 051.


When I look up this part in Autodoc.de I get this:

Bilstein B6 high perf. shock abs. 24-118224.


Does anyone know if Bilstein provides oem to Porsche/997?

Has anyone installed these? 


Any advice?

@Loren, thanks for the update!


I just discovered:  029 is no damptronic, 475 is with damptronic.


I'm getting a headache reading Bilstein B4 vs B6..  B4 seems like rock stock and B6 seems like the sport suspension but I'm wondering if:


0. Just swallow and replace both rears with struts from Porsche.

1. swap both rears to B4 and do nothing else, hope that it is rock stock so the car still feels the same with the Front oem's.

2. go scope creep, replace F/R with B6...  then I need to worry about the springs...  doesn't sound like the proper path since everything is stock on this car.


Any comments?  suggestions?  anyone done this?
