Question Bilstein?

I need new shocks for my truck soon and it seems like most people recommend going with Bilsteins. I have a 6" Superlift on my truck and my question is, should I get the silver 5100 series or the yellow heavy duty ones? I see both are available for my truck.

Anyone know where I can get them cheap?

Thanks for any help!

Yellow are for std height and are differently valved for that use. 5100's are valved by Bilstein for lifted trucks..not correctly IMO for some.
