Bilstein 5150 Shock Valving

Hello everyone,

I'm looking to get shocks for my 86 CJ7, and have been heavily considering the Bilstein 5150s. My concern is with which valving I should go with, the 170/60 or the 255/70. My jeep has about a 5-6" SOA lift on it, and is used mostly for riding rocky trails / wash board roads. I want them to be soft, but not too soft that I bounce and float all over the road. Please give me your opinions on what you think would be best for my jeep, thanks
