Hey guys. I'm looking to purchase a set of Bilstein Shocks. There is two kind, and I was wondering which one works better. Where I live the roads are really bumpy. Which kind do you perfer, the HD's or the Sports?

my notes say they are valved the same, but the HD is similar length as OEM
shock. the HD I bought were actually about 1" longer than OE. the Sport is
designed for use with shorter/lowering springs and is approx 1.25" shorter
than OE. in comparison, the Bilstein HD/Sport shocks are approx 10%
firmer in compression/dampening than OE shocks.
