Prime Choice Assembly Struts?

I've stumbled across a thread regarding Primechoice strut assemblies. It was long locked which I can't reply so i'll create a newbie. Besides the fact they're really a bargain would it be the same difference even if I were to order for an SS vs the LS/LT?

FE1 (all 2.2s) and FE5 (FI SS's) share the same physical dimensions, but they're valved much differently. Ideally, you'd want to get the '08-'10 FE5 shocks/struts as they offer the best ride and sharpest handling, sometimes they're even cheaper than FE1s too.
