Exclamation Need suspension rec for 2006 911S

I have a 2006 911S and want to upgrade my suspension so I can lower the car an inch or so. Not going racing but want a more aggressive stance. Car has PASM so needs to be compatible I am assuming. So many options so I'm looking for a good recommendation that we can do while it is in storage this winter.

Really there are two main choices, if you're just looking for a drop. Eibach and H&R. You'll find there is a bit of discussion about which is better. You'll have to decide.

If you're looking for shocks as well, several more choices, in addition to weather or not to keep the active shocks or not. And don't forget about the DSC.

I'm very happy with the Bilstein Damptronics and TPC DSC box setup I have on my 05 C2S. Did just the coilovers first (along with RSS Stage 2 hardware) and the car immediately handled better. Adding the DSC let me tune the suspension for the dual modes (Street & Mountain in my case) and make the suspension fully active based on G-force information.

Many people have done just the lowering springs and the DSC together and will get you pretty far up the path, and be quite a few thousand less expensive.
