Bilsteen 5100, vs 5150, and Icon

Yes I know searching is my friend, and I have read it ALL about these shocks, even on the duracrap forums.

I just moved up north with my southern 03 SD. The ol diesel with a fabtech leveling kit needs some new shocks. Debating between the 5100, 5150, and some Icon Shocks. The ride does not really matter to me much, But I don't want my new badass looking shocks to start showing rust this winter. Anyone have any advice on which ones? Everyone swears by the 5100s I know, but I don't want the rust starting. I like the look of the 5150s is basically the only reason I was looking at them, and I have never heard anything bad about the Icons except the price.

Also anyone know of any deals on the shocks mentioned? Cant wait to get the new ones on!

We sell all of them. All are either painted or coated to prevent rust but if any of them get even a small rock chip the chemicals used for snow will attack the spot! If we can help please PM me.
