The valving was different between the two. I believe Sam clarified that they now have all been converted to the HD valving and the SLP valving is no longer available.

Talk to SLP and they tell you they have differnt valving to make them softer. Talk to Bilstein and they tell you they are the same part number and are identical. Back in the day, they actually were different, but they are currently HD shocks. I don't know how/why people are still selling SLP Bilsteins because they no longer exist according to Bilstein.
