Cool Which Shock Absorber

The old questions

for the 1986 560SL, should I get the Bilstein standard or heavey duty shock absorbers?

Is there a reason to go to a different brand - Konic for example.

Are there and "Leasons Learned" regarding the replacenment of the shocks?

I'm figuring both front and rear.

Thanks for your continued help and suggestions.
Thanks for the help
