Default 987.2 PASM shocks

Does anyone know of a sport shock for a 987.2 Boxster S WITH PASM?

There are many non-PASMs, but I seek for my PASM-equipped car. I do NOT want an OEM replacement unit; I'm looking for my dual-use street/track car.

TIA, CIA, etc,

What are you trying to achieve? The ability to tune the shocks to your preferred stiffness then you can do it with the TPC DSC and your stock shocks. If you want to lower the car and maintain PASM then you can do a coil over setup like: https://www.bilstein.com/us/en/blog/...-coilover-kit/

If you want all that and faster responding shocks with a wider damping range them you can go with the Tractive coilovers with DSC.

UBERMENSCH and others: My 2011 Boxster S is highly modified. I got it new in 2011 and immediately replaced the stock springs with Eibach stiffer ones. I retained the Porsche OEM shocks, since the car has PASM. Now, 8 years and 60K+ miles (and MANY track days) later the shocks are shot.

I'd rather not replace them with OEM shocks. If there is a track-oriented PASM-compatible shock I'd like to use that. I am not interested in a coil-over redo of everything. (The car is also my Daily Driver, and I'm just a DE-kinda guy [although I am a PCA instructor])

SO .. Is there a PASM-compatible street/track-oriented shock for my car??

Thanks all,

Only choice that I know of are Bilstein DampTronic coil-overs (B16). These are direct replacement coilovers for the stock PASM shocks.

Also, TPC Racing sells their Tractive DDA PASM units.

I understand you're saying you want a street/track oriented shock. To most people that means a little stiffer than stock to pair with stiffer springs and to improve response. The best way to accomplish that is with the stock PASM shocks paired with the TPC DSC. It allows you change the stiffness directly (essentially what you did with the eibachs) but also provides dynamic changes in stiffness based on vehicle dynamics. So, you can avoid buying new shocks and spend the money on the controller and achieve a better end result. To the best of my knowledge that's your only (and best) option short of going with coilovers. I ran this setup for quite some time at multiple tracks and my hour each way commute. It's the best compromise I've found.
