Which Strut / Shock to use on a car with PSM?

Hi, I have a 2000 Porsche 996. I'm trying to determine which struts / shocks to use for my 996, which has PSM. I assume I need to replace the suspension with PSM replacement components.

I initially wanted to use the Koni FSD or the Bilstein HDs, but I spoke to sales representatives at Koni and at Bilstein and they both said they do not make a PSM version of their struts / shocks for my 2000 Porsche. 

So, my question is - what type of struts / shocks do I use for a 2000 Porsche 996 with PSM?

I'm also assuming that PSM cannot simply be disconnected and ignored, as the car's onboard computer uses the feedback from the suspension to adjust performance. So, I can't simply use a set of Koni FSDs and forget I have PSM -- right?.

So, short of getting an OEM replacement set from Porsche, what options do I have?

Your advise is appreciated.
