bilstein 5150 out-5165 in

i currently have a set of bilstein 5150 in the front and rear. i was looking to run duals up front,but have since found out that they are no longer made. i was told to look at the 5165. more valving choices and slightly beefier.

with my 6" lift the 5160 list option is as follows


-4-6" front 25-188363 (collap/exten) 15.9" / 27.0"
-3-5" rear 25-188370 (collap/exten) 20.2" / 34.3"

now the 5165 is a univeral shock and the i really only see 2 options.
25-187724 which is 16.1 collapsed and 27.4 extended with a 360/80 valving
25-177503 which is 14.6 collapsed and 24.4 extended with a 360/80 valving

which is the better choice?with plans for a winch bumper im thinking the firmer valving will be a benefit over my current 5150.plus i could stick with a single using the 5160/5165.

thoughts?
