Bilstein Shocks - Two HD models?
Disclaimer (I feel I have to!): I did search for shock information, but, didn't find specific model information so sorry if this actually exists someplace - I couldn't find it!
Ok, with that out of the way, I have a 2005 1500 Crew Cab LT 2WD and want HD Bilstein's. That seemed like an easy choice, until I looked at sites to buy them - including Bilstein.com - and there are (at least) two models of HD shocks for Front/Rear:
F4-BE5-2905-H0 --- REAR
F4-BE5-2903-H0 --- REAR
F4-BE5-2905-H1 --- REAR
F4-BE5-2902-H0 --- FRONT
F4-BE5-6500-H0 --- FRONT
All of which "seem" to fit my make/model of truck... I'm looking for a super firm ride, and to never bounce around again. Ever. LOL....
Thanks so much for the assistance.

Bilstein's are a good choice. I had them on my HUMMER and now I have the Ranchos on my Silverado. While the Ranchos are nice, they aren't the Bilsteins...

I'm in Charlotte, NC -- but, I'll give those Canadian folks a shout as for the life of me I can't figure out the difference in the model #'s..... I just want the stiffest ride possible....
Thanks again for the response - I truly appreciate it!!!
