    I noticed on 4wheelparts.com that there are two different Bilstein 5100s. One is about $25 more than the other. What's the difference? Is one just meant to be more robust for heavier trucks? Is one for the 4 cyl. and one for the 6 cyl? Anybody know?

    Well the problem is 4 Wheel Parts. They suck. You can get the 5100s cheaper from DSM.

    Haha well that's all well and good. But what I want to know is whether I'm buying the right shock. Also, what's this DSM you speak of?
