Id'ing a suspension on my new to me 996

So im working though the items on my new car. I have been able to figure most it out but im stuck on the springs. I guess i could call Champon Motorsports but i figured i would ask here first. There web site doesnt list what i have. Im guess they r rebadged H&R springs. Also looks like i have the Bilstien b6 shocks. I really just trying to figure out what the drop and spring rate is.

This set of springs on Rennlist says they lower 1" to 1.2". They're for a turbo and have the H&R on them. It looks like H&R now owns Champion??
Typical lowering springs are 1-1.2" lower. The spring rate you request is not like a coil over adjustable spring. These springs are progressive in nature and are slightly stiffer than stock. They're $500 dollar springs, not high end race stuff.

Thx for the responce, i did find those 997tt springs on their web site. I too figured they r pretty much what i have, mine r just older. Im not sure yet what im gonna do with this car. So this one step better then stock set up is probably gonna stay for a while. It does have gt3 front lower control arms with gmg tie rod links, the rear has rss dogbones and tarrett toe-in bars. It should handle pretty good on the street once i get it aligned correctly.

Since i doubt ill track this thing competitively it not getting race coilovers, but i am thinking about upgrading to the bistien pss10's. I gots lots of research to do and i need to get some miles in the seat as this is my first porsche. I come from more of an offroad background.
