DownSouth 5100 package question

Had the Taco in for the Spiral Cable recall and the tech said the front shocks were weeping. Time to upgrade and level. Looking at Down South website, they list 2 different 5100 packages for my rig. One listed as 5100 Bilstein and the other as RCD/Bilstein. What is the difference between the 2 packages? Which would be a better match for my truck? It's a '07 4x4 Dbl Cab LB. 95% street driving with a little dirt/gravel road thrown in. No serious off-road use. The truck has 55,000 miles on it. Any reason to look at replacing coils at this point? Can anyone shed some light on this?

RCD is I believe a company they buy the 5100's from and they get a better price than normal..so thats why the one package has a better price. Same product just different distributor I think.(I bought the RCD 5100's and they work great )

Thanks Jeff. When I didn't get a response, I called DS and was given the same answer. Same product, different vendor.
