C6 Z51 shocks on a C5 is there a difference in years?

Have a 98 vert with over 80K miles. Looking at replacing shocks with Z51 or Z06 shocks. Daily driver not track. Want control but not harshness. Heard that C6 Z51 shocks are not as stiff or harsh as the Z06 shocks. Also heard the Z51 shocks were improved in 07 or 08.

Someone who knows please advise the differences.

Also considering Z51 or Z06 sway bars and aluminium links but I think the most difference in handling will be from the shocks.

Have Michelin Pilot Sport A/S ZPs on with lots of tread. Car is not lowered.
