    Supposedly the slp's are a better quality. The hd's were valved for the strano spring and the slp's were valved for the eibach slp spring(.5") drop compared to a stock spring. I don't think the hd's are available anymore. Could be wrong on any of the above. I have the bilstein with strano's, mine are pretty worn so however they used to handle I have since forgotten.

    According to Sam Strano there is no longer any difference in the valving and the SLP were the one that use to be recommended with lowering springs. SLP Bilstein shocks usually sell for a little less money also.

    I just bought a set of HD Bilsteins and they came with slp muscle car performance decals in the box. Dunno what the difference is.
