Bilstein shock choices

OK, so i'm not sure which ones to grab. I have a 2000 Excursion 7.3L 4x4, but the front springs are off a plow package F350 so they're a 2"-ish lift, and the rear springs are dually C-code springs about 2" higher than stock. But I assume that my "lift" is actually factory height for a 2000 F350 4x4
I'm thinking To get the regular yellow Bilstein HD's for a 4x4 F350 and pop the T bar out of my rear shocks and into the new ones.
Or should I be looking at the silver custom length ones?

Oh, are bilstein's the best one's to get? I have the KYB monomax's and they are way too soft

The 5100s are the silver ones which come in different lengths. They are better shocks too. Look on topguncustomz.com they have great prices and a bunch to choose from

Do those ones have lifetime warranties? I will have this truck long enough to need it

I don't think they do but I'm not sure. Check on Blistins website or check with topguncustomz.
