So Bilstein discontinued the 5150's, what now?

After asking around I came up with the sad news that Bilstein doesn't make the 5150's anymore. I was going to get the 10" ones to go on the rear of my 96 Regular cab that has Wheeler's 1.5" leaf springs, Toytech 1" lift shackles. I'm ordering some 5100's for the front and Toytech springs soon, so I'll also be adding a 1.5" AAL to keep everything leveled out as well as deal with hauling my motorcycle to the track.

Anyways I had my hear set on the 5150's since they were about $250 for a pair, so any ideas on what I should go with that will be under $300?

5150 got discontinued because they had little issue and now the 5160 came out to basically better and improved 5150. But they still have 5150 forsale but there harder to get

Any recommendations for under $300/pair? I need something that will have enough travel for my lift once I get the AALs
