is $334.99 and specifically says "Bilstein" while the second one
is $299.99 and specifically says "RCD/Bilstein". The point of confusion is that they both look exactly the same (maybe I'm missing what the RCD/Bilstein means) but they are marked at roughly $35 difference.
Also, how does the TW discount for DSM work?

This topic has come up quite a few times in the past, but I realize that the way our site is set up now, it can be confusing.
The shocks are the same, whether you get the Bilstein ones, or the RCD ones. The ones from RCD, are built by Bilstein, exclusively for RCD, and that's why it's a different part #. Why are the RCD ones cheaper on the site? Because we buy them cheaper. Simple as that. The reason for us listing the 'Bilstein' part # on our site is complicated, but they will remain listed.
The RCD/Bilstein 5100 shocks were meant to be offered as an exclusive to forum members at the discounted price, but there was no way for us to 'hide' them on our site. So many people who visit our site end up finding both listings. The $299.99 price is already considered the "forum member" discount price, so no additional coupon codes are required, nor allowed.
Hope this clears things up, and please call us if you have any questions...
