Bilsteins? Which Valving?

I'm running the stock Fabtech shocks on my 6" lifted 99 ,and they suck.The bushings on both fronts are shot, and they bang and knock wonderfully.I'm looking at Bilstein 5150's all four corners,here's the part #'s
(2)bf5-a195-h1 5150
(2)bf5-a187-h1 5150
(4)stud adapter for my application

and a link

I picked the stiffer? valving of 255/70.Anyone running these?Should I go with the softer 170/60?

Why not go with an adjustable shock?
