rear shocks

Any reason not to replace my rear dinan shocks with bilstein shocks (save me 100$ over koni yellows). The dinan just make a lot of noise on impact with potholes. they are on full soft, but that dont help. its a pain I can live with if im autocrossin like we do up here, but when I move Ill be lucky to get 6 a year on 50 second courses. So, im trying to come up with a plan.
