bilstein shocks

Thinking about getting some new bilstein shocks for the truck. What is the differance between the HD (the yellow one) and the 5100 Series?

The bilstein 5100 series are for leveled, lifted height & the HD bilstein are for stock height. The HDs are also firmer.

What I meant to say is that they are a little firmer shock vs the 5100 series. Now the ride ride comfort, handling is good on the HDs.

Any aftermarket shock will be a big upgrade & ride better then the stock GM OE shocks.
